Split - explore the narrow, cool streets surrounding Fruit Square
There has been a community at the site of the present day Split since the 6th century BC and as the city grew narrow streets demarked new areas of the city. These now offer an excellent opportunity to explore the history of the city with some of the most interesting areas being around the Fruit Square. Here you can see marked into the walls the history of occupation by various armies over the centuries. Be sure to find the bronze statue of Marco Marulic sometimes called the father of Croatian literature.
