GAME OF THRONES - SPLIT STORY

The first episode of Season 6 was called “The Red Woman” and by now, we all know why. Today, we’re going to look in on Meereen as Split was the site of this long walk between Varys and Tyrion.

Split is the second-largest city in Croatia and capital of Dalmatia, world known for its 1700 years old Diocletian's palace, the best-preserved monument of late antiquity in the whole world. Diocletian Palace and the entire historical core of Split have been on the World Heritage UNESCO list ever since 1979, and not only for the extraordinary preservation of the Palace, but also because the Palace and its city (or the city and its Palace, if you like) continue to live a full life. All historical layers from the old Rome, Middle Ages till today are still visible and alive in this structure.

Split represents the historical center and the well-preserved remains of Diocletian’s Palace (UNESCO World Heritage List since 1979), built between the late 3rd and early 4th centuries A.D. The cathedral was built in the Middle Ages, reusing materials from the ancient mausoleum. 12th and 13th century Romanesque churches, medieval fortifications, 15th - century Gothic palaces and other palaces in Renaissance and Baroque style make up the rest of the protected area.
