Split and Salona
The story of Split is already 17 centuries old, dating to the time the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his Palace right on the peninsula near the great Roman city Salona, where he wanted to spend the last years of his life. During these 1700 years, the Palace slowly turned into a city, which to this day lures with its rich tradition, glorious history and beauty of its natural and cultural heritage.
Diocletian Palace and the entire historical core of Split have been on the World Heritage UNESCO list ever since 1979, and not only for the extraordinary preservation of the Palace but also because of the Palace and its city (or the city and its Palace, if you like) continue to live a full life. All historical layers from the old Rome, middle ages till today are still visible and alive in this structure. A walk through the ancient city takes you through time, along the great examples of ancient architecture like Peristyle, the middle-aged Romanesque Church and Gothic Palace, Renaissance portals of the noblemen’s houses, Baroque facades and modern architecture superbly merged in the rich heritage.
Bay is situated halfway between Omis and Makarska. And at the foot of the mountain Biokovo is a beautiful beach. Near the beach is the underwater source of the Cetina River, and this bay is an ideal place to cool off in the hot summer days. According to a local legend, there is a sunken city Pelegrin whose bells are heard in stormy nights.
Bay can be easily reached by boats, and it is a favorite destination for tourist ships that sails from Omis or Mimice. Beach in Vruja is truly beautiful, and it is one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole Adriatic. There is a well on the beach with the natural spring water from the river Cetina. Here you will find meditating tranquillity, and untouched nature.
