Split – the Croatian city that appears in Game of Thrones. My visit this year


Split is a very unusual city. The whole downtown area was once the purpose built Roman palace of the emperor Diocletian. He was the only emperor to ever retire from the office and went to spend his last days living in great luxury. In the Middle Ages, a warren of streets was built within the Roman walls that didn’t respect the original grid plan but has left us with a very evocative place. You will recognise some of these streets from Game of Thrones and here is a video I did on my iPhone as I was guided round.
