Night falls on Diocletian's Palace in the old city of Split. People come to the peristyle, near the cathedral, where the ancient Roman emperor rests in peace. Gulls and other birds circle in the sky. And the Luxur coffee shop is packed. It is not a normal coffee shop, it is another example of how people in Split got used to life round the ruins. You can sit in the stands of the peristyle of the palace, and you will be served drinks! For a bit more comfort, there are cushions, marking out "tables", but in reality, you eat and drink whatever the waiter brings. The Luxor could not have a terrace because of its setting, but used the ruins with cushions to serve people. The place is not very expensive, and at night there is a pianist ve comes to play. Viewing the sunset from there is a magical moment.
Split is a beautiful city, with its winding streets, the only problem is with restrictions to preserve this city, as it is an UNESCO world heritage site, and you can not change anything of the old architecture of the city. In medieval times, the houses were built very close to each other, to be more compact and strong in case of an attack. So, apart from the square Narodni and the peristyle, the city has very few large plazas, and therefore there are many little café terraces. The square has the caffé Get, a cafe serving drinks and snacks, but does also serve food. I liked the décor and it is friendly. Prices are decent considering you're in the summer in one of the most touristic cities of the Adriatic coast. Chairs with cushions are more comfortable than most of the other bars. It is a calm square where not many people go and you can make the most of the calm and quiet, enjoying your drink in the sun. I recommend this place if you are in the area.
