Split. So gorgeous that a Roman Emperor chose it as his retirement home.
More than 1700 years later, Diocletian would not recognise the destination in which he chose to spend his final years, but he would perhaps be pleased to hear that his legacy live on in the modern era. Not only does the palace he built still bear his name, but it is also one of Croatia’s eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
And can there be a better UNESCO site on the planet with better views? For the absolute best views of the old town and bay, climb to the top of Sv. Duje bell tower. Too lazy? Let us do it for you, with this astonishing timelapse. Split at its finest!
