Coming to Split and not stepping into the Park-forest and Marjan hill from where the most beautiful view of the city and its surrounding area extends, would be a great pity. This symbol of Split and a green oasis with both a natural and cultural value abounds in historical and cultural monuments, including dozens of small churches and chapels. On the southern side of Marjan are the Jerolimske and Šantine rocks together with the remains of masonry buildings in the rocks where hermits once lived. The small church of St. Jere dating back to the 15th century and dedicated to St. Jerome, the patron saint of Dalmatia, can also be found here. Throughout the year, Marjan is a place for relaxation, walking, outdoor activities, sport and entertainment, surrounded by kilometres of landscaped or indigenous beaches.
