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.

 Amid the remnants of Diocletian’s grand residences, pre-Christian sphinxes and the best marble that the neighboring island of Brač could provide, there is a pleasingly workaday town. Pavement cafés, cozy bars and plenty of shops mix with two lively markets and chic apartments built from the very barracks where Diocletian’s soldiers once lived.

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.
