Split’s storied history – and the city’s very layout – revolves around the sprawling Diocletian’s Palace, built in 305 for the Roman emperor’s retirement. It covers about half of the Old Town: a walled marble and limestone complex full of grand gateways, former temples and a peristyle that has been wonderfully conserved and restored, making it easy to envisage life as it was nearly 2,000 years ago. And so the location of Judita Palace, at the heart of Diocletian’s, indulges guests’ imagination in a little time travel – with modern comforts, of course.
There are just ten rooms in this updated nobleman’s home with another nine opening in May 2019, with Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance architectural features throughout its four floors. Each room is named after a figure with whom Split has shared some of its past, such as Prisca, Diocletian’s wife, or Vid Morpurgo, the Renaissance literary talent. A historical adventure in a fascinating city.
