One of the most recognizable symbols of the city of Split is the Cathedral of St Duje or St. Duje, as its name is Splićani, which is the oldest cathedral in the world. St. Dujam was the first bishop of Salona and in honor of him was built a magnificent cathedral. The beautiful cathedral bell tower, 57 meters high, was built in the 13th century. If you are in good condition, we suggest you climb to the top of the bell tower from where you can enjoy a unique view of the entire Split and central Dalmatian islands.Interestingly, it was precisely the car of Diocletian who was a fiery persecutor of Christians and residents of Salona. According to his order, Duje and other martyrs were killed in the city amphitheater in Salona. Be sure to stop in front of the wooden door to the cathedral, where sculptor and painter Andrija Buvina carved 28 scenes of Jesus' life.
