Prokurative is a famous square in Split, situated to the west of the Diocletian's Palace, and well known as a stage for many cultural events. One of the most recognisable landmarks in Split.

It is an open square on three sides surrounded by neo-Renaissance buildings. The southern side is open and has a nice view of the harbour.

Antonio Bajamonti (1822-1891) , a Dalmatian politician and former mayor of Split, had a goal to make Split a "City of the Future". He invested a lot of effort in the construction and decoration of Split, a then neglected provincial town, to make it a small European city.
