Split


Cathedral in Split:
Cathedral in Split, Croatia
Located on a peninsula on the shore of the Adriatic Sea, Split is the second largest city in Croatia. As of 2007, the city had a population of 221,456, with an estimated 408,000 living in the metropolitan area.

The settlement Split dates back to at least the 3rd century AD, as it is known the Roman Emperor Diocletian order the construction of a massive palace at the site in 293. In the 7th century the interior of palace was converted into a town by the former citizens of nearby Salona who fled to the area to escape the destruction of their town by the Avars. Although today Split has grown far beyond the original palace area, much of the palace still stands and in fact forms the inner core of the city.
