When, in the year 305, the Roman Emperor Diocletian , who ruled the entire world at that time, decided to build his leisure time abode - in which he intended to spend the rest of his life - he had no doubt as to exactly where build to it. In the very heart of Dalmatia , in the bay of Aspalathos (Split), well protected from the sea by the islands of the Split archipelago, and defended on its landwar side by high mountains, Diocletian created a special point on the map of the Adriatic: the future city of Split.
