Wonder the city streets and marvel at the Roman walls, squares and temples. Discover the neighbourhood of Varoš, one of the oldest parts of town, which boasts charming houses. Opt to climb up to Marjan's peak which offers a panoramic view of the whole city. Football fans will appreciate Poljud stadium, the second largest stadium in Croatia. Another highlight is wondering the Getski vrtal - spot rows of laundry hanging out to dry, great photo opportunity of a Croatian street scene.
