Split - Mediterranean Flower

Split, Croatia

“Mediterranean Flower,” Croatia’s second-largest city, is located on a beautiful peninsula off the Dalmatian Coast. Built between 298 and 305 AD in the glory of Ancient Rome by Emperor Diocletian as a palace, luxury summer house. Growth became rapid in the 7th century, when the inhabitants of the destroyed Greek and Roman metropolis Salonae (Solin) took refuge within its walls. Today, Diocletian’s Palace in the very heart of Split is UNESCO World Heritage site and has been a high point for world travelers for well over a thousand years.
