Split is the second-largest city of Croatia and the largest city of the region of Dalmatia, it lies on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea. Spread over a central peninsula and its surroundings, Split's greater area includes the neighbouring seaside towns as well.

Split is one of the oldest cities in the area. While traditionally considered just over 1,700 years old, counting from the construction of Diocletian's Palace in 305 CE, the city was in fact founded as the Greek colony of Aspálathos in the 4th century BC. It became a prominent settlement around 650 CE, when it succeeded the ancient capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia, Salona: as after the Sack of Salona by the Avars and Slavs, the fortified Palace of Diocletian was settled by the Roman refugees.
