We walked past this gate 4 times. After we left our accommodation, we headed towards Diocletian's Palace. The Silver Gate was just 5-min walk from our accommodation, naturally that would be the nearest entrance to the Palace for us. The two days we were at Split, we only used the Silver Gate and Iron Gate, so we can't comment which... More

We saw this gate on this tour on the outside and on the inside are stalls selling souvenirs. To me it was no more impressive than other entrances or other bits of architecture in the palace

Easy to access from the train station (100 yds), bus station (same) and from the cruise ships. There is an open farmers' market everyday - fresh pears, peaches and peppers! Antique stalls to get small knick knacks. The main rod is just 25 yds away. Had great fun.

This gate should not be evaluated on its own, but rather as an integral part of the amazing Diocletian Palace.

Croatia - the place to be. The entire Diocletian Palace is beautiful and certainly a place to visit.

By the time you get to the East or Silver Gate you have probably seen most of the Palace and really it is one of the least impressive parts of th Palace. Anywhere else it would be the star attraction.

It is hard to describe every monument in Split separately. The city is one big monument. The city gates, churches and castles are so beautiful...

This is an impressive gate but it's very much a part of visiting the palace although you could miss it. Worth a look but its only going to take a minute or 2.

The eastern gate of the Diocletian's palace is very well preserved and leads to the market areas. Have a walk trough it.
