With a population of 60,000 people in the 1st century, this city used to be the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia. It is unclear if Salona was destroyed or was just deserted, but one thing is for sure – it became a quarry which everyone was using, even some churches in Rome were built with this stone!

Don’t miss out on one of the largest open graveyards where early Christian martyrs were buried, or the ruins of the 2nd century Roman amphitheater where 20,000 spectators used to watch gladiators fight, and much more…
