It was on my way to Split so I visited this. It was interesting to see those old ruins near to new parts of city but for some people this can be a little bit boring.

Everyone visits the Diocletian Palace in Split but few come to Salona to see the ruins of a large city which was destroyed over centuries but whose population fled partly to Split and settled around the Palace. Do take a guide as you need to...More

For a person who knows close to nothing about dating ruins these might as well be from 1870 as from 170! Without a guide it was sort of ehhh - even though we had an audioguide. The only spot I really liked was the amphit...More

If you are interested in Roman history and are visiting this area then this is a must location to visit. The ruins of ancient Salona are well preserved and located just outside of the town of Solin. There’s a little museum with some interesting presentations...More

It's a huge site of a roman city that is for the most part obscured by trees. The Eastern quarter is fairly clear and you get a good impression of the buildings here. But when you get past one of the major gates you can...More

Don’t miss out a visit to Salona while in Split. It’s an extensive Roman City, complete with an amphitheatre similar to the Colosseum (but less complete), designed to allow 17000 patrons to watch lions eating Christians. The animal cages and the exit for dead gladiators...More
