Split is also home to St.Duje's cathedral, the oldest cathedral building in the world. The beautiful cathedral bell tower provides an unrivalled panoramic view of the city and surrounding islands. Roman architecture and culture can also be experienced at Peristil square, Jupiter's temple and the nearby town of Salona. Salona is a 10 minute bus ride from Split and was one of the biggest towns in the Roman Empire. It was the capital of Dalmatia (Roman province) and it showcases an amphitheatre, basilica, cemetery and many other landmarks synonymous with the Roman era.
