The hotel is just a few steps away from the Emperor’s Square which is also called “Peristil”. The Square is situated at the intersection of two main streets of Diocletian’s Palace and is further divided into two parts, i.e. the upper and the lower. Peristil served a historic purpose of separating the northern part, which was intended for servants back then, from the southern part, which was meant for the Diocletian. Peristil, thanks to its acoustics, is used as a natural scene for several musical and dramatic spectacles. Guests at the hotel can request staff to arrange their bookings for the same. Rejoice in joyous entertainment in the company of some of the finest artists. The St. Duje is also located at 2-minutes walking distance from the hotel. It was built to immortalize the legacy of St. Duje, who was executed during the reign of Diocletian. He was the protector of Split and its Archdiocese.
Apart from that, there’s also the statue of Grgur Ninski which is relatively closer to the hotel. Grgur Ninski was a Croatian bishop, who was of great importance for the Croatian language and culture. Locals say that rubbing the statue’s toe brings good luck. Guests are encouraged to come to Split and get lucky here! His palace also lies directly behind the statue. It was designed as a luxury villa, which was later transformed into a mansion. Due to its aesthetic beauty, the palace is known as one of the best preserved Roman monuments in the world.
Other tourist attractions that lie close to the hotel include Riva and Marjan. If you wish to go shopping or even just grab the delicious local dinner, Riva is the way. The Marjan Hill, which rises to a height of 178 meters, is home to numerous types of animals and natural institutes.
