This is Diocletian's Palace situated near the Adriatic Sea in the Croatian town of Split. This is one of the most impressive attractions in Croatia and is pulsing with life. The labyrinth like walkways inside the palace walls are alive with commerce. Pictured here is the central square of the palace which is near the entrance of Diocletian's quarters.
The palace can be tricky to navigate on your own so a map is recommended. But, if you do get lost, my host recommended that I should always walk downhill which would eventually lead me to the harbor...a sure way to help regain your bearings (I had to do this three time and it worked!).
