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.”

“On Kasjuni beach you can find a combination of sandy, pebble, and rocky beach. There you’ll find beach bars to have a cocktail & relax on a deck chair. Kašjuni are also a bit cooler than the rest of the city, which is a big plus during summer heat. There is also a nudist beach and a dog beach near the Kasjuni beach!”
