The architectural complex was included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and is the main attraction of the country. Museum of Split is opened in the palace. A large collection of books that tell about the history of the city is the most valuable item in the museum’s collection. Besides this the museum exhibits a collection of antique arms and armor. One of the most important religious sites - the Baptistery of St. John – is located nearby. Travelers may find a particular interest in looking at the font, the panel of which is decorated with paintings depicting king Zvonimir.

Its collection will be liked not only by history fans, because here are collected numerous amazing exhibits, the most notable of which is a collection of precious stones.
