Vestibule

Last updated on Saturday, 17 February 2018

The vestibule was the entrance to the residential part of the palace, only for and selected audience such as ambassadors. Just like in a theme park, the vestibule prepared the visitors for the follow up - meeting the ruler. That is also one of the reasons why it is (was) so impressive - it had to prepare them for meeting "the one above them".

South east of vestibule is the Medieval quarter, where the oldest building is the early Romanesque house from the 10th century. On the opposite, inside the church of St. Andrija is a part of the Ethnographic museum.

The Vestibule has great acoustics, so during the summer, you may find klapas (klapa music is a form of traditional a cappella singing in Dalmatia performed by a klapa group) performing traditional songs in a capella. In 2012. klapa was inscribed in UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
