Pjaca square (officially called "Narodni Trg") is one of the main points of interest for all visitors who come to Split and want to explore its old town.
Being located in the heart of the Diocletian's Palace, Pjaca is surrounded by palaces and buildings that are considered to be masterpieces of art from various periods of history.
Pjaca is one the most beautiful tourist spots in the town, hand in hand with the more glamorous Split Peristyle.
Pjaca square attractions
When you come to Pjaca, the first building you will probably notice is the Town Hall, located on the north side of the square.
Its last reconstruction dates from the 19th century.
Today's building hosts various exhibitions, mostly during the summer season.
The Pavlovic Palace dates from the Reinnesance period (16th century). It was extended in Baroque with its main facade remodelled.
The Karepic Palace is another Gothic-Renaissance masterpiece of art located on the square. You will notice two coats of arms on the building, one dating back to the Gothic period, when the palace was constructed, and the second one dating from Reinnesance, when the palace was renovated.
Restaurants and coffee bars on Piazza square
Piazza is an ideal spot to sit and have a coffee after sightseeing. I would point out Vivas bar, a place with delicious coffee, a polite waitress, and affordable prices.
Restaurant Bepa is located on the square as well. Just as expected, prices are a bit higher, since this location is considered to be glamorous. You will pay around 14 euros for a burger, and 15 euros for beef cheeks.
