History Museum
“In this museum you can request a tour which will take you to the top of the walls of the Diocletian's palace. The key thing is that there is enough people so they can form a tour, at least 4-5!”

History Museum
“Museum with an extensive collection of Latin inscriptions, predominantly originating from ancient Salona. In the early 16th century, Dominik Papalic, a nobleman and humanist from Split, set up in his house a collection of ancient inscriptions, which he found during the many walks with Marko Marulic, "the father of Croatian Literature", among the ruins of Salona. (On view in the Atrium of the Archaeological Museum are five original inscriptions that have been preserved from this collection). Marulic wrote the "catalogue", i.e. the "guide" to the collection.”

Nightclub
$$$
“Possibly the weirdest, and most unique, bar/club in Split, Academia Club Ghetto is a stop you must make if you’re looking for something outside the box. Located in the city center, just on the edges of the palace walls, it is the perfect place to find Split’s more colorful characters. Among locals it has the reputation of being a cool place to spend a night, whether it be out on the terrace or inside the club. No matter what you choose, you’re in for a treat.”
