This was one of the entrances to the Palace compound, originally a double gate on the eastern wall, only the inner section is still standing and still retaining some of the arches and recesses used to display sculptures. We were told that the gate and...More

The Silver Gate rises above one of four entrances to the Diocletian Palace grounds and offers quick access to the Church and all surrounding attractions. There are four gates to the area and the one that’s best for your purpose will depend on which direction...More

This gate is on the side of the bus & train station, when you walk through the markets. It worked out great for me as my Hotel was right next to it and there is plenty of things to do in that location.

The palace can be accessed via 4 gates located along North, south, east & west side of the palace. Good to visit all four to experience them.

It is a wonderful place and very popular. Shame not more effort is made to protect the archway. Worth reading a guide book on its history. The old city is well worth spending some time in.

This entrance is not the most interesting, and is next to houses and full of souvenir tents and shops. But is near to the bus stops (local buses) and to the road to the ferries and so on.

this gate cannot be missed since it leads to the old city and is part of Diocletian's Palace. It is a beautiful and historic gate.The street in front of the gate has a lot of different souvenirs if you need to do some shopping.

Eastern or Silver Gate is one of the entrances to the Palace and is hard to miss. What's a little harder to miss though, is the "Eye of the Needle" right next to it on the left side if you're looking from the outside. If...More

This is one of several gates that you can use to enter the old part of town, which sits as the name suggests, along the eastern wall, a stones throw from Diocletian's Palace. Indeed the Peristyle can be seen as one enters. This for me...More
