Golden Gate (Porta Aurea)

4 reviews of Golden Gate (Porta Aurea)

Living history

The Golden Gate, or Porta Aurea, is one of the main entrances on the eastern half of the Split city walls. In front of the door is a huge statue of Grgur Ninski which has become an emblem of the city. Residents touch his toe for good luck. The entire old town is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and there are four entrances to the palace. But you're not entering a ruin: this is the way into the old city, and what was once an exclusive palace is today lived in by ordinary citizens. A wonderful example of living history.
