Hi, my name is Ana. I am a historian, art restorer, and recently a tour guide. During my time at collegue I wrote books about Dalmatia and Split. I also did the restoration on renowned landmarks of Split - Statue of Grgur Ninski, Diocletian's mausoleum, portal of palace Augubio etc. I recently got a tour guide license and would be very happy to share my knowledge with the people visiting my hometown.

Tour description

my name is Ana. I participated in the restoration of many Split landmarks including the statue of Grgur Ninski by Ivan Mestrovic, the Diocletian mausoleum, the portal of palace Augubio, etc.
Being a tour guide is a long-time wish for me.  I will walk you through historical facts as well as stories and mysteries surrounding Split and Diocletian's palace.
We will begin our journey in park "Đardin", then we will make our way to the map on Split Riva. After that, we will make our way through the Diocletian's basements to Peristil. From there we will go to Diocletian's apartment, vestibular, cryptoporticus, etc. From there we will make our way to the golden (north) gate. There you will also see the famous statue of Grgur Ninski made by renowned and world-famous sculptor Ivan Meštrović.
From there we will go to Pjaca and Voćni Square where we will finish our tour.
Looking forward to meeting you! :)

Great tour, Ana's energy it's contagious and really makes you want to find out more about the city. We liked that she studied history and arts because of the point of view she provides, nonetheless, a bit deeper and more detailed historical information would be completely fine and very much appreciated.

Very quietly spoken and not always easy to hear otherwise on the whole good for me.

I loved the personal insight on the city and the preservation of the previous palace. The tour was great fun and she was open to all kinds of questions!

Not as in depth about the context, history or overlays of centuries of development onto original Palace, as had hoped from Ana's background as historian archaeologist.
