the neo-Renaissance buildings surrounding the square on three sides. Most people to this day know it by that name. The square is only open on the south side, providing a beautiful view of the harbour and the Riva (waterfront). The building of the Prokurativa was initiated by one of the most renowned mayors in the history of the city Antonio Bajamonti in the mid 19th century. He wanted to show that Split supported Italian tradition with all its might. Hence the colonnade resembling Venetians, and reliefs above the windows evoking the ancient and Renaissance influences. Bajamonti also made his great theatre on the square, but it was destroyed by a fire. The square has long been established as an excellent stage for cultural events, especially the pop music festival, and the local bars and restaurants made it a popular venue for the citizens of Split. The plateau on the south side has always been an integral part of Prokurative, with, ever since 1947, a neo-Classical fountain, destroyed by the communist authorities, due to its alleged connection to the Italian rule over Split and Dalmatia.

First to Review

This large open square contains the impressive Prokurative, a mostly orange and white arched building that covers three sides of the square. It's actually quite a picturesque square and the Prokurative is a lovely example of the diverse architecture you can find within the city, although for some reason you never really hear anybody talk about it. From the square you also get lovely views out over the Marina and dotted around its perimeter are several cafes with expansive seating areas. Definitely worth checking out as you walk along the waterfront.

Prokurative (Trg Republike) su veliki trg smješten zapadno od Rive, kojega nalik venecijanskom Trgu svetog Marka s tri strane okružuju neorenesansne zgrade s lukovima po kojima je i trg dobio svoje ime po kojem ga najviše ljudi zna. Trg je otvoren jedino prema jugu, pružajući prekrasan pogled prema luci i Rivi.
Gradnju Prokurativa je sredinom 19. stoljeća inicirao jedan od najpoznatijih gradonačelnika u povijesti grada Antonio Bajamonti, koji je želio pokazati da je Split svim svojim bićem oslonjen na talijanske tradicije. Otud i kolonada poput venecijanske, i reljefi nad prozorima koji prizivaju antičke i renesansne utjecaje. Bajamonti je na trgu napravio i svoje veliko kazalište, uništeno u požaru.
Trg je odavno etabliran kao odlična pozornica za kulturna događanja, posebno festival zabavne glazbe, a tamošnji kafići i restorani učini su ga popularnim okupljalištem Splićana. Sastavni dio Prokurativa je i plato južno od njih, na kojem je do 1947. stajala velika neoklasična fontana, koju su uništile komunističke vlasti, zbog navodne povezanosti s talijanskom vlašću u Splitu i Dalmaciji.
