SPLIT (Dalmatian Capital since Roman Times)
When Emperor Diocletian was considering retirement from governing the Roman Empire, he shopped around, found no decent accommodations and decided to build his own. Thus, Split was born. This magnificent walled city palace, built to Diocletian’s exacting standards, today retains enough of its original charms to attract visitors by the thousands.
Split is the economic and administrative center of Central Dalmatia, with about 200,000 inhabitants. It is a busy port. An international airport and regular ferry services connect Split to the nearby islands, the Northern and Southern Adriatic, Italy and Greece.
The new dorm in the campus of University of Split will accommodate and host the School, students will share twin bed rooms.
Lectures and hands-on training activities will be held at the Faculty of Science.
