According to the latest data collection, conducted in 2011, Split has 178,192 inhabitants, the second largest in Croatia and the third port in the Mediterranean by the number of passengers. The city center is made up of the ancient Diocletian’s palace from the 4th century, under UNESCO protection since 1979. Although the formation of the town of Split connects with the construction of Diocletian’s palace, 295th-30th century, ie in the 4th century, archaeological sites excavated after 2000 prove that this area inhabited in the early years, long before the Diocletian.

Diocletian was known as a great reformer of the Roman Empire because he introduced a system called tetrarchy, which is simultaneously governed by four rulers. He was a persecutor of Christians who were considered gods. The great palace in the area of today’s Split was built to spend pension days in it. Diocletian’s Palace is the largest and best preserved late antique palace in the world. The east and west walls are 216 m long, 181 m south and 175 m in the north. In the northern part of the palace there was room for servility and army while the south were the carve chambers themselves. In use, it was a water supply that supplies water from the source of the Jadro River and is used in one part today.
