Fodor's Review

This is the main city square (pjaca) and can be accessed from Diocletian's Palace through the western or Iron Gate. This was, and still is, the primary gathering place for Splicani (people from Split). In the 15th century the Venetians constructed several important public buildings here: the Town Hall (that today houses a contemporary art gallery, with erratic opening hours), plus the Rector's Palace and a theater; the latter two were sadly demolished by the Habsburgs in the 19th century. The Austrians, for their part, added a Secessionist building at the west end of the square. Once the heart of the city for civic life, it is now a prime location for people-watching from one of the many restaurants or cafés that line the white marble square.
