  • I love old churches and cathedrals. This one did not disappoint. Beautiful inside and out. A nice calming place to sit and reflect regardless of religious preference.

  • Climb the bell tower of the Cathedral of Saint Domnius for a panoramic view of Split. The climb is much less physically taxing than the climb of the bell tower in Zadar.

  • This is definitely a must do in Split. The cathedral is very ornate and nice. Very peaceful. I definitely recommend going to the top of the tower for nice views of Spilt. The crypt is tiny and has a nice statue of mother Mary. Be aware that they are closed to visitors if they have mass etc
  • Beautiful old cathedral. We got there during the rain, and it was time to look at the interior. Inside the church, one could observe many artifacts from completely different times. The view from the tower is not bad, but it was quite windy at the top and we didn't spend much time
