Diocletian's Palace, Croatia

Photograph by Lindsay Mackenzie, Redux

Croatia's second largest city, Split, is home to Diocletian's Palace, a complex multilayered slice of history that is at once Roman ruin and Split's downtown, with several thousand inhabitants. Constructed in A.D. 305, it's been continually inhabited for more than 1,700 years and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here, visitors explore the peristyle, an open courtyard surrounded by colonnades.
