The city of Split was originally a Greek settlement near the larger port of Salona, but when the Roman Emperor Diocletian retired in 305 AD to a palace he had built, the city took on a new importance. Diocletian's massive Palace has suffered significant damage and repurposing over the last 1700 years, but many of its walls and a few of its structures remain. In addition later civilizations adopted the palace as a safe walled compound and built newer historic buildings that are an important part of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Besides the remaining Roman ruins, there is the stunning St. Domnius Cathedral and its iconic bell tower and the narrow streets filled with shops and inviting cafes. Just outside the southern wall is the Riva Promenade that partly encircles the lovely port area. Outside the city center is the Archaeological Museum and the park at Marjan Hill. The Greek and Roman ruins of ancient Salona and the lovely medieval walled city of Trogir (also a UNESCO site) are both very close to Split. The islands off the coast near Split offer a wide variety of tourist opportunities from famous beaches to blue caves to small scenic ports such as Hvar on the island of the same name. Taking a tour via boat of the Split region offers amazing photo opportunities. Significant opportunities for active tourism have been developed in the area. Diving and snorkeling operators offer some great locations for viewing coral and other sealife. One of the most popular active tours are rafting trips down the Cetina River. If you want a real cultural adventure, you can arrange a tour into Bosnia-Herzegovina to the town of Mostar, which has a strong Islamic heritage and suffered greatly during the break-up of Yugoslavia.
