Watching the 1700 year old palace of Roman emperor Diocletian from sea level will provide you a remarkable experience of the Adriatic port of Split. The biggest city from both sides of Adriatic gives many opportunities for you to explore, not actually going far away from city center. Starting from the western side of the port your kayaking tour will proceed towards the southern side of Splits park-forest Marjan. Your tour along the coast will include the area of the Kastelet with the gallery of the famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic and Villa Dalmatia that once belonged to later Yugoslav communist leader Tito. Kayaking tour will also pass close to Maritime research institute and the bay of Bene and back with a drink at the area of the Institute. Paddling along the coast is to show you the touch of nature and Mediterranean architecture dominated with Diocletian’s palace that is under protection of UNESCO.
