Real people, real tragedies, real love stories, real Split in its own words – this is what this walking tour essentially is. Dressed in black, carrying the light when the daylight goes off, nocturnal guides are presenting themselves as the Spirit of the Old Split who still lives in the walls of its Diocletian's Palace. Slowly wandering the narrow, hidden streets of Split, nocturnal guides are theatrically retelling stories of the true soul of this city. Its citizens are ordinary but extraordinary people, heroes worthy to be honored in the history of this town, unfairly never mentioned in the ordinary walking tours, representing this ancient city of Split. This tour states, that the history of one town is not just a set of facts about great and important events. It's written down by people from the audience, from the margins, small and ordinary, as much as those big and extraordinary ones. It is colored with sounds of Meditterean and strongly inspired by Miljenko Smoje, the most famous chronicler of Split. Love for this city is found in his words: If this city was under a tent, we would have the biggest circus in the world! Let the lantern lights guide you through the tales of old Split. Prepare yourselves for a night filled with stories of the town's most charismatic, soulful, interesting individuals that were always referred to as the Soul of the city itself.
