Salona

Recommended
Salona was a major town during the Ancient Roman period, with 60 000 inhabitants in the time of Diocletian, and its ruins are particularly impressive. The healthy economy and cosmopolitan character of the city encouraged Christianity to flourish here from the 2C. The site now comprises the necropolis of Manastirine, where the victims of Diocletian's persecutions were buried; the museum or Tusculum; the ramparts and the eastern town with an old Episcopal centre; and a superb amphitheatre dating from around 170.
