two beautifully restored split-level apartments are
situated in the very heart of the Diocletian's palace.
The house that they are in was built in the 16th century.
As many of the houses that were built within the palace
walls throughout the centuries, it blends perfectly
with its surroundings.
During the restoration, the main idea was to keep every
original feature and by doing so, respect the history,
lives and fate of people who lived there.
to the business of our modern lives, there is a sense
of calm and stillness.
From the south-facing window you can see one of the
oldest cathedrals in the world – cathedral of
St. Duje, patron saint of Split. The view of narrow
passages and red-brick roofs, and the spirit of the
old city will make your stay in Split unforgettable.
Both apartments encompass second floor and attic space,
and measure 30m² and 35m² respectively.
The Roman Emperor
Diocletian spent his declining years in an enormous palace that
he had built near his birthplace, Aspalthos, in Dalmatia. With
the passing centuries the original architecture of the palace
has been altered, but the people of the city, later called Spalato,
and then Split, were able to use the structure of the palace,
damaging it as little as possible, under Byzantine, Venetian
and Austro-Hungarian rule. Thus, a harmonious city came into
being within the Roman walls. The peristyle of the palace, Diocletian's
mausoleum, Jupiter's temple, the colonnades along the streets,
Early Croatian churches, Romanesque houses, the gates of Andrija
Buvina and architectural works by Juraj Dalmatinac have remained
in a good state.
