Solin is a town in Dalmatia, one of the largest ten in Dalmatia. It is situated near the mouth of the river Jadro, 5 km northeast of Split. It would be wrong to assume that Solin is suburb of Split because it is an independent city. The city is surrounded by mountains Kozjak and Mosor, and through it floats the river Jadro.
Solin is a very old town, and that means it is full of interesting sights. Its first name was Salona and it was Greek colony from about 300 years before Christ.
Total population of Solin is 19011 inhabitants, according to population census from the year 2001, but when it Roman time it had 60000 inhabitants, so you can imagine how important Solin was at that time.
Accommodation capacities are huge, no matter if you want to stay in a hotel, or you prefer private apartments, camps or villas. It is possible to stay in an old house from the outside, but well decorated from the inside, as many are just like that in Solin.
In the northwestern part of town is located amphitheater. Manastirine is the most interesting part of the early Christian Salone (Solin). This is one of the greatest early Christian graveyards under the open sky. Numerous churches, sculptures and ruins from times of Romans could also be seen in Solin.
