In the basement of the palace you will find numerous small shops where you can buy souvenirs, jewelry or postcards. You can also admire archaeological exhibits.

Medjugorje

Medjugorje, a pilgrimage site in Bosnia-Herzegovina is located approximately an 1.5 hour drive from split. It is known as a holy place, because since the early 1980s there were many inexplicable appearances of St. Mary, which are said to have occurred here. In addition to several places of worship, there are sights such as the St. Jacobus church, which was built in the 19th century, as well as the Kreuzberg, which is 0.6 miles away. This is a 27 ft high cross on Mount Krizevac, a popular destination for pilgrims from all over the world.

Marjan

Close to Diocletian’s Palace is Marjan Park. This is an approximately 590 ft high peninsula mountain, which offers a breathtaking view of the city and the surrounding islands. The park invites you to come relax, walk and is also used for sports activities. There is also a small zoo on the mountain.

In the 19th century, the inhabitants began to plant the mountain and since then has been cared for by the association Marjan. Today the park is known as the “lung of the city”.
