Diocletian's Palace (in Croatian, Dioklecijanova palača) is a monument built in the city of Split, Croatia, commissioned by the Roman emperor Diocletian between the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. C .. Diocletian ordered this palace to be built to spend his last days after his abdication in May 305. Today, the palace has been transformed into the heart of the city of Split and around it are all the important buildings and monuments of the city. Although it is called "palace" because it was intended to be used as a residence of Diocletian during his retirement, the term can be confusing, since the structure is solid and looks more like a great fortress: about half was for personal use of Diocletian, and the rest housed a military garrison.
Diocletian built the huge palace in preparation for his retirement on May 1, 305. It is in a bay on the southern side of a short peninsula that protrudes from the Dalmatian coast, about six and a half kilometers from Salona, the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia. The slopes of the terrain descend gently towards the sea and are typically karst, formed by low limestone ridges that go from east to west, with marl in the hollows between them.
The palace is very well preserved and is recognized as one of the most beautiful architectural places on the Adriatic coast of Croatia. In 1979 Unesco declared the historical ensemble of Split, including Diocletian's palace, as a World Cultural Heritage.

The Port of Split (in Croatian: Luka Split) is a port in the city of Dalmatia center of Split, Croatia. The port was originally a trading post established by the Greek settlers of the island of Vis, which was later taken by the Romans. The port prospered through the Middle Ages, but suffered a fall in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, when the port of Rijeka assumed control as the primary trading center and in the outbound shipments of the region. The decline was also attributed to the fall of the Ottoman Empire, a traditional market for the port of Split, and the growing dominance of the Austrian Empire. As of 2011, the port was ranked as the largest passenger port in Croatia and the third largest passenger port in the Mediterranean, with an annual passenger volume of approximately 4 million.
