This square is home to the statue of Marko Marulić, a literary figure of Croatia known as the "Father of the Croatian Renaissance." The statue was created by Ivan Meštrović, another popular Croatian artist. In addition, there are various shops in the square, including Znanstvena Knjižar, a Croatian bookstore, the 15th-century Venetian Kaštel, and Milesi Palace. This square is called the Fruit Square due to the fruit market that once surrounded the area.
When you set your eyes upon the Green Market on Stari Pazar, the over-abundance of produce and vendors will greet and please your senses. The Croatian phrases "koliko košta" (how much does it cost?) and "hvala" (thank you) may come in handy as you wander from vendor to stand, in search for a tasty mandarin or the freshest leafy green. In addition to the farmer's market, there is a flower market and various clothing and souvenir stands.
This square is for the people, representing the fine citizenry of Split, as Nadroni Trg has become the meeting place within the palace. Here you will find the Town Hall, today used as an exhibition venue, and a cafe where you can sit and watch the kids play in the square. In addition, there are small shops such as Dallas Music Shop, DiCaprio boutique, and an antique store. From here you can also get a good look at the Renaissance-Romanesque clock tower.
Split's Riva is where you can take a seat at any one of the sidewalk cafes and enjoy the sights and smells. From people-watching to boat tours, the Riva is Split's seaside strip that locals and tourists frequent all year long. Here you can also find Hotel-Restaurant Adriana and Caffe Bar St. Riva, as well as the tourist bureau and Splitska Banka (Split Bank).
This music store located in the palace offers a wide variety of music, from Croatian to international artists. Dancing Bear also occasionally hosts concert events. Stop in, rummage through their selection, or ask the friendly staff for a recommendation.
