Solin, once the ancient capital of Roman Dalmatia, bristles with archaeological treasures and well-preserved ruins. Known then as Salona, it was the birthplace of Emperor Diocletian, and its vast collection of ruins shows just how important this place was to the Romans. Solin holidays are packed with unforgettable scenery and architectural gems at every turn. Visitors are spellbound by the ruins at the impressive archaeological park just outside the town.
Packed with crumbling Roman splendour, the remains of the amphitheatre, basilica and public baths give a terrific glimpse into daily life in the heyday of the empire. Solin is also just a short trip from cultural hotspot Split – in fact, it makes a tranquil base from which to explore the vibrant port city, where the Archaeological Museum showcases the historic treasures found at Solin’s ancient sites. Along with a heady dose of history, holidays to Solin offer as much relaxation, culture and great Croatian cuisine as you could want.
