  • Definitely worth a visit when in Split. It's a major part of Split's rich history, so it shouldn't be missed. The treasury had interesting artifacts and relics as well. It's definitely not as large, nor as grand as the other famous cathedrals in other countries, but still beautiful, nonetheless.
  • Looked an interesting place to have a look. Lots of people going in to have a look, until the 'gentlemen' at the front gate put his hand in my face and said "no, we're closed today, maybe tomorrow" before letting a load more people in. Lovely experience in Split so far 😂 I'm gonna guess it's a little discrimatory unless you're blatantly local.
