Split For Kids: Play and Learn about Split

Daniela Rogulj

March 10, 2020 –  A new map helps your kids learn about the rich history of Split.

More than 1,700 years ago, Roman Emperor Diocletian built himself a palace close to his birthplace, but even he could never have dreamt that it would grow into such a wonderful city as Split. Today, Diocletian’s Palace is not a museum; it’s the heart of Split, open to everyone, and among its guests are many families with children. That was exactly the intention of the Tourist Board of Split to offer something completely new to children – a city map with content aiming at children and families traveling with kids. However, this map offers even more – to learn about the rich history of Split in a way suitable for children.

This map will be available in all Information Centers of the Tourist Board of Split. It includes locations of cultural institutions suitable for kids, like museums and theatres, but also other content, like sport facilities, playgrounds, spaces for outdoor activities, workshops, beaches, etc. On the map’s opposite side you can see the historical city center with Diocletian’s Palace. Short, simple texts describe the city’s most important landmarks; Basement Halls, Peristyle, Palace Gates, Bishop Gregory’s statue, Sphynxes, markings hidden on old town’s walls, and many more. Following directions, any child will be able to solve simple tasks that make a stroll around the Palace even more fun. The slogan chosen for the map, ‘Play and Learn About Diocletian’s Palace,’ speaks for itself.

Of course, one of the important goals of this map is promotion. The Tourist Board used it to invite children and their parents to post their photos of Split landmarks on social media, using hashtag #SplitForKids. That way, they will spread a word about Split and invite children to become friends of the city.
