Everyone knows about the Dubrovnik walls, but it is a little known to people that Split has the almost same ability on Diocletian’s Palace walls. The reason lies in the length of the promenade itself, which is around 170 meters, and at the entrance to the promenade which is restricted. In principle, a promenade has no entry. The only way is through the scientific research center for architectural heritage.
Another, perhaps a bigger problem is that some parts of the promenade are still privately owned. During my visit I found on promenade a drying clothes, a grill, a couple of chairs, etc. A scene that says this is the terrace of the flats attached to it. And I’m one of them right now because my apartment is between walls and square called Carrarina Poljana . Right inside that wall is my toilet in the apartment. Unfortunately, my apartment has no connection with Diocletian’s Palace walls.
I was very surprised by the large number of TV antennas and satellites that were leaning on the promenade. One of the reasons why palace are highly valued and protected by the UNESCO is the continuity of life inside Diocletian’s Palace. Basically because of this, things like TV antennas shouldn’t be moved.
I must also notice that the promenade is very narrow. In a conversation with the professor of architectural heritage, there is a desire and the opportunity for the expansion to make that promenade longer. Of course, the question is the time and the mostly financial situation.
The only thing I didn’t write now is a look out of the walls of the Diocletian’s palace. If you were in Dubrovnik, it is probably one of the greatest adut to keep up the precious time. Looking at the city from a completely new perspective is the right discovery. It was also big experience to me who is living few years in Split.
If you want to enjoy this phenomenal place, you will have to deal with the Split City Museum.
