Beach is always a good idea

The beach is well equipped with showers, trash cans, restaurants, tennis courts, and a children’s playground.

4. Diocletian’s Palace, known as a huge roman complex in Split, is one of the best preserved roman buildings from late antiquity. Indeed, this palace doesn’t look like the palaces of other roman emperors. Unlike this palace, palaces of the most roman emperors were designed as villas. This property is much smaller and different. In spite of that, Diocletian’s Palace is wonderful and very unique.
