Historic Split - The Diocletian's Palace & The Mestrovic Gallery
Today, SeaDream comes alongside to dock very near the center of the city of Split; the historic and commercial center of Croatia. You commence with a panoramic drive through the town and your first visit will be the dramatic gallery of Ivan Mestrovic who is known as Croatia's premier modern sculptor. Ivan Mestrovic built this gallery as a personal residence in 1931. This comprehensive and well-arranged collection of works is sure to leave a lasting impression. The gallery is located just outside the town of Split. Upon arrival you will be able to stroll through his Gallery and former house. At the conclusion of your walk, step outside into the beautiful garden with magnificent views over the sea. Then it's on to the city of Split, which is the product of 17 centuries of building, renovating and remodeling. Today, Split is an amazing mesh of old and new. At the core of this sprawling cityscape is one of the two the highlights of today's excursion, The Diocletian Palace, dating from the 4th century. The Palace is one of the most Imposing sites in existence. Far from being a museum, the 220 buildings within the palace boundaries are still home to 3000 people as well as housing shops and cafes. A walking exploration visits the cellars of the palace, the Cathedral of St. Duje and the Temple of Jupiter. After exiting the cellars, the Golden Gate and Peristyle Square will also be seen. Enjoy a bit of free time to explore the colorful open market or do some people watching before returning to your SeaDream yacht.
