We will start with the bronze model of the town's protected area and learn more about the history of Croatia, Dalmatia, and Split.
Stroll through the cobblestone streets of the Place and see the Peristyle as the central square of the Palace, intended for Emperor Diocletian celebrated as the living son of Jupiter, finds its place among many temples. The Emperor would appear under the architrave of the central part of Protyron, and his subjects would approach him, kneeling down, kissing the hem of his scarlet cloak, or they would fall in front of him, their entire body to the ground.
Porta Aurea is their Roman name. Emperor Diocletian walked through them as he entered the Palace on the 1st of June 305. They were built in the shape of a rectangle, with double doors, as part of the defensive military tactics (propugnaculum).
Pjaca (People's Square, another square nobody in Split calls by its real name), is first mentioned in the 13th century as St Lawrence's Square, and it was the first inhabited part of Split outside the Diocletian Palace, leaning to its western wall. Already for centuries, the Pjaca is the central stage of the city life, there is the Gothic building of the Old Town Hall, today an exhibition center was the seat of the city's authority, and instill beautiful and preserved Palaces on the outskirts of the Pjaca lived the noble families.

Frane picked me up early morning to visit Krka National Park. During the ride he told me many things about Croatia, the history, nature, habits etc. In the park he showed me the nice spots, told me about the vegetation and fauna. I was surprised about the knowledge the showed about so many subjects. Besides that a very nice and funny person as well!
