Split is the economic and administrative center of Middle Dalmatia, with about 200,000 inhabitants.
It is also the jumping-off point for exploration of the coast and islands of the beautiful Croatian Adriatic. The site
was first settled when, at the end of the third century AD, the Roman Emperor Diocletian built his palace here.
The importance of Diocletian's Palace far transcends local significance because of its level of preservation and the buildings
of succeeding historical periods built within its walls, which today form the very heart of old Split.
Split's growth became particularly rapid in the 7th century, when the inhabitants of the destroyed Greek and Roman metropolis
Salonae (present-day Solin) took refuge within its walls. The lovely ruins of Solin outside the city can still be explored
today. In the Middle Ages, Split was an autonomous commune.
