Artist's Description

Sailing ships including the M/S Kapetan Kuka (Captain Hook) moored in the harbour at the Croation city of Split.

Split is one of the oldest cities in the area, and is traditionally considered to be just over 1,700 years old, although recent discoveries would seem to indicate that it may be several hundred years older.

Behind the harbour on the right, located within the Diocletian’s Palace (Croatian: Dioklecijanova palača) can be seen the top of the Bell Tower of the Cathedral of St. Duje (Croatian: Katedrala Svetog Duje), the Catholic Cathedral of Split.

The Bell Tower was constructed in the year 1100 AD. It was one of the most beautiful Romanesque towers. Extensive rebuilding in 1908 radically changed the Bell Tower, and many of the original Romanesque sculptures were removed.

The Historical Complex of Split with the Palace of Diocletian is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
