Diocletian's Palace is one of the best preserved Roman royal residences on the planet. Built on the seacoast of Split around 295 AD, the structure is more like a city, housing sixteen towers, three temples and an emperor's mausoleum.
Football is king in Croatia. The locals are crazy about their team, and with good reason. Hajduk, 'the bandit', were the Croatian champions in '92, '94, '95 and '01. Some claim this town has the best atmosphere for watching football in all of Europe.
The city's seafood is a must. And be sure to sample authentic Croatian cuisine at a konoba – an old-style family restaurant.
The kuna (HRK) is the official currency of Croatia. Banks are the only place where you can change kuna back into hard currency. You can get a cash advance on your credit card at banks throughout the country, though Visa® credit cards are not accepted by all banks.
