The main attraction in Split is certainly Diocletian's palace, the most preserved example of the late antiquity, a palace built by the Roman emperor Diocletian at the turn of the fourth century. It is has been protected by UNESCO since 1979. Location of Royal Suites is ideal to fully explore Diocletian's palace, Riva (main promenade) and colorful green market just by walking. These main attractions of Split are on 5 minutes walking distance from Royal. And the best way to explore and to feel the old town is to walk through the labyrinth of the palace's streets, or to enjoy a coffee at Piazza or Prokurative - town's famous squares. Nearby is the most popular pedestrian shopping street in Split Marmontova and next to it the vivid Fish Market.

Let's not forget the historic parts of Split like Lučac, Radunica and Varoš that make the old town core with beautiful examples of dalmatian stone architecture. To get lost in their narrow streets is the great way to feel the hidden Split so close to the famous palace.
