We decided to do free tours in Split because we realized Split is mainly backpackers and student town, so sometimes real tours can be a little bit too expensive for them. In the scenario of free tours, you don't have to pay anything, it's 100 % free.

Of course, in the end if you liked it, if you're amazed by our skills of communication and knowledge and you just can't resist but offer us a tip, we will surely accept it. Just in that case you chose how much you pay for what you get on a tour and not some agency.  This is a unique tour, because we are trying to approach Split to you, both from history and cultural perspective, but also from the perspective of a person who was born and raised on its streets.
The introduction is important, because that's when you get to hear in short all about Split history and development of the city.


First we take you outside of the palace, so you get to see some sights that are not in the top ten priority to any tour guide. For us that part of a tour is important as well, because we want tourist to see the way people live and not just the way they lived in the history.
Passing two big squares (Fruit square and People's Square - Pjaca) we come to the Fish market and Prokurative. From there down to Riva where you get to find out about the green hill Marjan that is seen from there, new west promenade, Sustipan park that is also seen from there, and of course we point you to beautiful beaches that lie after that park. Also, Bačvice beach is also very important to be pointed to - mentioning both clubbing, swimming and playing "picigin".

After a 10 minute break (optional) in F-cafe at the end of the promenade, we tell you everything about the palace in front of the map that shows how it looked like before... Then follows the big thing - we go through the substructure of the palace inside. From Peristyle that had a function of the Roman forum and main squares in the Middle Ages, through Vestibule which was Diocletian's lobby to his most private chambers. Passing through his promenade and his dining room we come to Silver gate. Passing through them you get to see the Green market.

One of the last steps is the Golden gate as the main gate and the main connection to the rest of the empire back then. From there you get to see a great big statue of a guy with a golden toe that makes all your wishes come true.
The tour ends in the shade of a city park called Djardin.....It last aprox. 1 hour and a half and is recommended to anyone who wants to get to know Split from another point of view.

Meeting point: Metal map Riva at 10 am and 5 pm eyery day
