Full description

Embark on an adventure and see the Diocletian’s Palace, the oldest core of the City of Split. Marvel at one of the best-preserved and unique examples of Late Antiquity structures. Be inspired by its exceptional archaeological, historical and artistic value.  Discover a palace built on an inadequate geological base which was the main reason why the imperial residence was constructed above the monumental basement area. The cellars of the palace can be found within the southern half of the building. The floor plan mirrors the layout of Diocletian’s residence due to the fact that the structure in the basement acted as support for the walls above.  See the halls of the cellar which were used as the entrance to the palace via waterway. Nowadays, the substructures present a significant and the largest preserved ancient complex of the underground vaulted premises in the world.  Game of Thrones fans might recognize this place as it has been used to shoot the scenes of the Slave City of Meereen. Some sequences have actually been shot in this very basement, come and see for yourself.

The point of impact is not clear. If you go into the “corridors” in the center with all the jewelry and souvenir shops you will find the entrance to the cellars on the left side and when you walk back into the hall on the other side the entrance to the palace. This was a bit minimal but very beautiful! If you walk around the palace and take some hidden stairs you will also get to the top of the palace (for free). Please check with the employee. They are happy to help you!

Difficult to find because no indication you have to go down the stairs in the middle of the palace then go to the far right and you will find the cellars! To be done even more appreciably in summer because cool however a lot of mold due to humidity so certainly not good to breathe!
