Fodor's Expert Review People's Square

Split Plaza/Square

This is the main city square (locally known as a pjaca) and can be accessed from Diocletian's Palace through the western or Iron Gate. Historically this was an important gathering place for Splićani (people from Split), and remains so today. In the 15th century, several major public buildings were constructed here: the Town Hall (that today houses a contemporary art gallery), plus the Rector's Palace and a theater. The latter two were sadly demolished by the Habsburgs in the 19th century. A Secessionist building at the west end of the square stands as a testament to that era. Once the city center of administration, it is now a prime location for kicking your feet up and indulging in one of the many restaurants and cafés that line the white marble square.
