The story of Split has been lasting for the past seventeen centuries, ever since the Roman emperor Diocletian decided to build a palace on the peninsula near the large Roman town of Salona planning to peacefully spend his last years. The Sphinx in Split was brought over from Egypt for Diocletian to protect the entrance of his Jupiter’s temple(he thought he was a God), and is over 4.000 years old. The hit HBO series Game of Thrones was filmed on the Dalmatian coast in Split and Dubrovnik.
There are outstanding attraction to see in the city of Split and near by like: Vidilica(place with agreat view of the oldtown, promenade and harbor), gladiator arena from the 3 century(place of bloody gladiator fights to death and where Christians were thrown to the lions to be eaten alive because they did not obey Diocletian emperor as a God, and all just to entertain Diocletian and Roman citizens), Klis – very impressive fortress (600 years old military fortress on the top of the mountain, above the ancient Roman city of Salona, amazing view of two cities and 6 islands, top photos and video clips for Instagram and Facebook. Fortress of Klis was also primary location for filming HBO series Game of Thrones – in movie Fortress name is city of Meereen). Definitely a lot to see in a half day or one day tour..Come and check for yourself.
