Just above the busy streets in the city center as a part of Art Gallery


If you’re visiting the Art Gallery in Split, then this is the place you must visit! Galerija Umjetnina cafe means the Art Gallery Cafe, which tells you all you need to know. Located just a few meters outside the Diocletian Palace, it is a space adjacent to the Split Art Gallery. Quite a popular spot for locals who live around the palace, during summer there is almost always some program going on inside its walls.

As this place is just above the busy streets in the city center, it is relatively quiet. Surrounded by trees, it is an oasis of its own. The waiters have all been working there for years, so you get the feeling of being inside a family home rather than a cafe. Plus, if you’re visiting the city with your dog, Galerija Umjetnina cafe allows them to come in and relax underneath the trees. The coffee is good, the prices acceptable, and the service fast. Summer days bring with them concerts that are held inside the walls of the cafe. No better way to spend a summer evening than with the sounds of acoustic guitar as you drink cocktails.

  1. Not a review of gallery but recommendation of coffee bar/ drinks bar!

    Came across this during the day and had morning coffee here. Lovely staff, wonderful place to have a coffee and watch the world go by. Drinks menus on tables with the nicest sounding cocktails and gin mixers. Consequently, visited this place twice in the evenings. Wonderful ambiance, very popular, tasteful acoustic music. Away from the hustle and bustle of the busy old town streets but near enough to feel the specialness of beautiful Split. Prices very reasonable. A gem of a find. Perhaps next time I visit Split I might take in the gallery too!
