Top-Rated Tourist Attractions and things to see/do in Split
Diocletian's palace forms a main body of all attractions in Split. Apart the historical city core, there are other attractions worth seeing, but not as important as ones of Roman and pagan heritage.
The Silver Gate or "the Eastern Gate" is a well known attraction in the historical centre of Split. The "Porta orientalis" of the Palace was dedicated to St. Apollinaire, a saint worshipped all over the Mediterranean world during the Early Christian period.
As recorded by Marko Marulić in the manuscript dated from 16th century, the Vestibul had rounded niches with statues, a large dome with a glittering color mosaic and a white circular wall. If you are in the historical part of Split be sure to check out this attraction.
Grgur Ninski (Gregory of Nin) was a Croatian bishop in the Middle Ages which strongly opposed the Pope and introduced the use of national language in religious services. A popular attraction in central Split, with thousands of people stopping to rub the statue's toe each year.
