Republic Square (Prokurative) Tours

Republic Square (Prokurative)
The heart of Split, the 2nd-largest city in Croatia, and its main gathering place is Prokurative, also known as Republic Square. With architecture inspired heavily by St. Mark’s Square in Venice and easy access to the nearby Riva Promenade, the square is a popular place for concerts, performances, and people-watching.

The Basics
Commissioned in the middle of the 19th century by Mayor Antonio Bajamonti, who was keen to emphasize Split’s ties to Italy, Republic Square’s architecture doesn’t match the rest of the city but nevertheless is beautiful. There are many restaurants, small cafés, and local shops in the area around Republic Square, making it a welcome place to linger.

Small-group and private walking tours of Split, as well as shore excursions and day tours from Dubrovnik, visit Republic Square. Many tours of the square also stop at Diocletian’s Palace, Peristyle Square (Peristil), the Cathedral of St. Duje (also called the Cathedral of St. Domnius, or Katedrala Svetog Duje), the Ivan Mestrovic Gallery (Galerija Meštrović), and more.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Republic Square is a must-visit for architecture buffs.
  • Wear comfortable shoes to explore the area around the square.
  • Make sure to explore the local cafés in the area.

How to Get There
Republic Square is central and easy to reach. Its sole entrance is on the southern side near the Riva Promenade. It’s easily walkable if you are in the city center or by the harbor; taxis can get you there as well.

When to Get There
The square is at its liveliest in summer, when a season-long program of concerts, performances, festivals, and more take place here. Come early in the day if you want to beat the crowds and the heat. Early evening is an excellent time for people-watching, as locals and visitors stroll through the lively square.

Split Summer Festivals
Throughout the summer in Split, Republic Square buzzes with activity from the myriad festivals that transform it into a performance area. Split Summer Festival brings opera, theater, ballet, puppet shows, exhibitions, and more to the square. There are also concerts and film screenings to complement the festivities.
