Greek settlement Tragurion was founded by Dorians from Syracuse. The same arrangement of streets is present in Trogir even today, and the main square with the cathedral was once agora. After the war between Cesar and Pompeii in 49 B.C. Trogir lost the battle as the ally of Pompeii, and became municipium within Roman Empire. Since the 9th century Trogir had Croatian rulers, and after the ruin of independent Croatian country, Hungarian-Croatian king Koloman in 1107 gave Trogir a status of independent town. In 1123 Saracens almost destroyed it, and in 1171 Venetians robbed it, but the town soon after had its economic boom in the 12th and the 13th century. In 1409 New Croatian-Hungarian King Ladislav Napuljski sold Dalmatia to Venetian Republic. Trogir finally gave up and was defeated in 1420 and remained under their rule until 1797. After the fall of Venetian Republic, Trogir was for a short time under the rule of Austria (until 1806), then France (until 1814), then again Austria till 1918. After the First World War, the town became a part of the Kingdom of SHS (Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes), and in the Second World War it was defeated by the army of Mussolini. At the end of the war it became the part of SFRY (SFRJ). After Croatian was declared independent in 1991, it again becomes a part of independent Croatian country.

Split is the second largest city in the Republic of Croatia situated between the rivers Žrnovnica in the east and Jadra in the west. Split offers the shade of the Marjan forest in the west part of the peninsula, 15 kilometres of promenades stretching along the sea and a Dalmatian song on stone streets of the old town. It is famous for its climatic advantages with a of 2,700 sunshine hours a year. Split is important Croatian, Mediterranean cultural centre, as a city on the sea and as one of the most important tourist destinations in Croatia. Split is the city living at slow pace, to which you will get accustomed very soon. The feeling is like every day is a holiday here, squares, restaurants and cafes overfilled with people and unavoidable promenade "riva", ruled by a gentle refreshing breeze in summer. In winter the Mediterranean sun and the palace protect the city from cold like a winter coat. It can all be summed up into a single phrase - you feel like at home.
It was in 295 when Roman emperor Gaius Valerius Aurelius Diocletianus started building a palace in a bay on the Dalmatian coast, in the land of his birth. After his abdication in 305, the retired ruler left Nicomedia and settled in the palace wishing to spend the rest of his days there. The palace of trapezoidal form occupies a surface area of 28,900 meters square. After the death of Diocletian, the palace remained under imperial government and the conversion of the palace into a town, started in the seventh century when the inhabitants of the nearby Salona, under the invasion of Avars and Slavs, took shelter there. In the tenth and eleventh century, Split was governed by Croatian kings. At the beginning of the twelfth century, as well as other Dalmatian towns, it was ruled by Croatian-Hungarian kings and from the beginning of the fifteenth to mid eighteenth century they were replaced by Venetian administration. In the eighteenth century, after a short French rule, Split falls under Austrian-Hungarian Empire. After the First World War, the role of Split as a cultural, administrative and economic centre was becoming more and more important, and the number of its citizens was increasing. The Second World War brought suffering and bombing. The peaceful period that ensued contributed to the extremely dynamic development of the city. The Croatian War of Independence did not inflict direct damage to the city, but the city stagnated economically due to accepting refugees.
Split is a home of numerous cultural monuments and pieces and here are the most famous: Diocletian palace, Peristil, Jupiter’s temple, St. Domnius Cathedral, Prokurative Square and Fortress Gripe. In the town there are many museums and galleries. The gallery of one of the most famous Croatian sculptors Ivan Meštrović is worth to be singled out.
