Au programme

Welcome to Split, Croatia, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and the 1,700 year old mausoleum of the Roman emperor Diocletian that is also the world's oldest active cathedral! The mausoleum is part of a magnificent walled "retirement" fortress that Diocletian had built between 295-305AD by 50,000 slaves. It's the heart of a spectacular open Roman courtyard (peristyl) with majestic columns surrounding the cathedral and even a 3500 year-old sphinx--all looted from Egypt and then cut and ornamented to form a colonnade. Even the 800 year old wooden doors, hand carved with scenes from the life of Jesus and originally painted and coated with gold (we'll see a picture) are still here! Octagonal on the outside, the Cathedral inside is a surprise-- perfectly circular! The Christian elements, barely apparent, are tucked into niches between the massive almost red Egyptian granite columns. Look up at that majestic ceiling--it's one of the largest unsupported domes in all Roman architecture; the stunning frieze of winged charioteers, the faces of Diocletian and his wife Prisca, the three meter thick walls, so closely fitted together they didn't need mortar! We'll see the beautiful Baroque niche with the remains of St. Domnius himself; the magical floating reliquary in the gilded ciborium and much more--I'm very flexible with time, so pick a day and the time best for you and join me!

I'm am a well-traveled American expat who has lived overseas for more than 25 years--more than 10 in Split. I publish the city's only native English newspaper for tourists, DiscoverSplit, which is supported and approved by the tourist board and consult with other tourist boards and small businesses. Together with friends who are licensed, professional guides, I have created a suite of unusual tours which I co-host. I'm very passionate about living here and ever amazed at the magic and mystery of the 1,700 year old history that surrounds me--like how the mausoleum of last great persecutor of Christians, the pagan Emperor Diocletian, became St. Domnius Cathedral. Not just the world's oldest, still in its original condition, never moved and in daily use; but an architectural wonder whose power the persecuted felt should not be destroyed.

When I first booked this event, I was a little unsure of how a virtual tour like this would work. But it far surpassed my expectations! Robert had a great presentation with videos, images, and lots of personal stories which really brought it to life. After going on this virtual tour, Split, Croatia has been added to my bucket list of places to visit!

Robert's knowledge and enthusiasm for the palace and cathedral shine through in his online experience. This was a great way for us to see and learn about the palace and cathedral. We are now even more looking forward to visiting Spilt some day.

Robert is so passionate and knowledgeable about the cathedral sharing interesting historical details and highlighting the beautiful details in the architecture. All this went missed when I visited in person so now really can’t wait to visit Split with new eyes and appreciation. Recommend if you have been or plan to visit! Thank you 🙏🏼
