Papalićeva palača, dvorište - Papalić Palace, courtyard

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This wondrefull large Gothic-Reanissance stone building is located in the northeastern part of Diocletian's palace, within the complex of other Medieval buildinqs. It is situated in their center. Designer and builder was very famous Croatian native master Juraj of Dalmatia, 15th c. Beautifully carried out are the courtyard with its richly decorated portal and loggia, the first floor hall with its lavish four-light, two-light and one-light windows and with the well preserved wooden ceiling. The Renaissance building with a fine window decoration completes the ensemble of the courtyard.

Almost 64 years it is in function as the very interesting and rich City Museum of Split.

Inside, the permanent museum exhibition relates a segment from the history of the city, the period when Split was an autonomous city commune, 12th-14th c.

The city statute, seal and coins and the Romanesque sculptures from the belfry of the cathedral stand out among the exhibits. Within the period of Venetian rule, 14th-16th c., a central place is given to the Marko Marulić's literary circle. Mention should also be made of Libro d'Oro, Gothic-Renaissance coffers. In the armoury section are exhibited the weapons from the 14th-18th c., used for the defence of Split.

Zlatan Olić on December 30, 2010

hvala Sanjo, inače tu je obitavao Marko Marulić, nosi naslov "otac Hrvatske književnosti". Napisao duži spjev "Judita", kako je sam u predgovoru zabilježio: "u versi haruacchi slozhena" (fonetski: u versi haruacki složena, tj. u stihovima na hrvatskom složena) 1501... ma, Split je ludilo :)))

Sanja Kosanovic on December 30, 2010

Zlatane, Split je super... najbolja letovanja sam imala tamo... I dečija prijateljstva, od kojih neka traju i danas! :)

Želim ti sve najbolje!
