About the location

Home / About the location

The area of Solin is located in Central Dalmatia, 5 kilometers northeast of Split. It is pleasantly positioned on the southern, sunny slopes of Kozjak Mountain (780 m) and the western slopes of Mosor Mountain  (1340 m), on an area that extends to Kaštela and Trogir, Podstrana, Omiš and Split. The area of Solin includes Solin, Vranjic, Mravince, Kučine and Rupotina.

Climate: Like the entire area of the Central Dalmatia, Solin is characterized by a very favourable climate. Its weather is distinctly Mediterranean, with mild, mostly wet winters and dry, hot and sunny summers. This favourable climate is also influenced by the local and periodic (seasonal) winds, including the southeast wind (jugo) and the northeast wind (bura) that blow throughout the year, most strongly in winter when their bioclimatic effect is the most keenly felt. The most characteristic winds in the early spring and summer are the northwest wind (maestral) which has a considerable thermoregulating effect, i.e. directs cooler air from the sea. Annual rainfall is approximately 800 mm, evenly distributed, so that spring and summer are mostly dry with moderate amounts of rain during autumn and winter. Snow is rare.

Geographical position: 46o47 'N and 16o53 'E

City Split

The story of Split is already 17 centuries old, dating to the time the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his Palace right on the peninsula near the great Roman city Salona, where he wanted to spend the last years of his life. During these 1700 years the Palace slowly turned into a city, which to this day lures with its rich tradition, glorious history and beauty of its natural and cultural heritage.

Diocletian Palace and the entire historical core of Split have been on the World Heritage UNESCO list ever since 1979, and not only for the extraordinary preservation of the Palace, but also because the Palace and its city (or the city and its Palace, if you like) continue to live a full life. All historical layers from the old Rome, middle ages till today are still visible and alive in this structure. A walk through the ancient city takes you through time, along the great examples of ancient architecture like Peristyle, the middle aged Romanesque Church and Gothic Palace, Renaissance portals of the noblemen’s houses, Baroque facades and modern architecture superbly merged in the rich heritage.
