Split Sightseeing

Ok Split is hot. Every year, the number of tourists is increasing. That means the number of tourists who want to see everything and don't know what to see is bigger. So, as a local guy, i'm gonna help. I'm gonna give you a map and pinpoint everything you need to see in Split, and around Split. Lets start:

- Diocletian's Palace(1.)

Once a guy said:"I thougt it was a small palace!" Well no. Its not small, its huge.You can get lost in it(and i incourage you to do because only then you will feel it all) I recomend a whole day for the palace,or at least a half a day.You will find a lot off small and big things in it that i wont list it here.Museums(Ethnographic Museum),squares(The Peristyle of Diocletian's Palace),Churches (Cathedral and Bell Tower of St. Domnius)...

- Riva(2.)
Is the main and the most famous promenade in the city. It is sad that all Split citizens got to Riva in the morning and dring coffe there and stay until lunch...Of course that is crazy but if the day is good finding a seat on Riva is hard.

- Prokurative(3.)
If there is a cultural thing going on in the open in Split, it's here.A Venice style square made in the latter half of 19. century.

- Grgur Ninski Statue(4.)

Close your eyes and hold his golden toe. Make a wish and it will come true. Well im not a millionare yet, so maybe it's not true, but try,maybe you'll have more luck.

-Marmontova Street (5.)
Nice looking promenade that will lead you from the National Theatre to Riva. Made by the French(Napoleon) Marshal Marmont, just to say:"Hey were here 8 years!"
