The feeling of a whole palace from the past where you can stroll is superb. Definitely go before sunset and you will enjoy it both in daylight and under the moonlight.

We just saw the palace walking around. It is beautiful by day and illuminated at night. This place has so much energy and is the heart of the city center.

The palace is an open area and free. Go to the cellars which cost 42 kuna, very worthwhile. You access them from the promenade, just where the underground market is. Turn left towards the metal fence and tickets can be... More
