The palace can be accessed via 4 gates located along North, south, east & west side of the palace. Good to visit all four to experience them.

It is a wonderful place and very popular. Shame not more effort is made to protect the archway. Worth reading a guide book on its history. The old city is well worth spending some time in.
This entrance is not the most interesting, and is next to houses and full of souvenir tents and shops. But is near to the bus stops (local buses) and to the road to the ferries and so on.

If you are already in the palace then do explore all 4 gates. the main gate is the Golden Gate with the Ninski statue. I guess the Silver gate was for the soldiers and the golden gate only for the emperor.
While on our one day visit to Split, we used this splendid ancient Roman gateway to both gain access to and depart from the old town. This marvellous gate has wonderful Roman architecture and is one of the true landmarks to be found among the...More
One of only a few gateways to have survived in Split old town. The best preserved wall is also along from this gate so that you get a true impression of what the old town would looked like in ancient times.
