Writing a brief summary of the history of Solin, formerly the capital of a Roman provinence and describing its improtant monuments, is a task both appealing and hard. It is well known that Salona disappeared at the end of classical epoque, never to be renewed again. In the middle ages, the Salonitan town area, the entire former Salonitan ager, established at the end of Roman republic, was between three important centres that were often in collision: between the towns of Trogir and Split, and the Klis fortress, for a long time in possession of the Croaitan dignitary families and then by Turks. This inevitably determined the destiny of the former town of Salona, the present Solin, and its environments.

Besides its rich cultural heritage, past and present of Solin, by population age the youngest town in Croatia is marked with visit of Pope John Paul II to St.Mary Island in 1998., but also with endangered endemic trout subspecie Softmouth trout, Swamp cypress as natural monument, Gašpina watermill from 18th century and river Jadro.

Jadro river park

The history of Solin, Split and the surrounding area is closely connected to the river Jadro, which is rich in drinking water, and this significance has been maintained until today. However, apart from the fact that the river that rises at the foot of Mosor was and remains an important source of water for the surrounding population and settlements, its value is much greater. Along the river there are many valuable monuments of ancient and Croatian history, as well as natural and industrial heritage of the recent era. As part of the “Jadro-spring of life” project, all these motifs of the river are integrated. The Jadro excursion site unites the economic, cultural and natural wealth that the river has signified throughout history and the cultures that lived along it and preserved it in its original form.

The Jadro River was an inexhaustible inspiration for the planning of the excursion site, where it plays the main role of the narrator who tells all the important events in the first person, from the very beginnings, all the way to the present day. It guides visitors through all the corners of time that it has witnessed. The symbolism of the continuous flow, which was there before us and will be there long after our time, is the link that allows us to tell the story with a line that creates so many different shapes and leads the visitors through different spaces in an innovative way so that visitors get a complete experience and immersion to the understanding of the river that means life. Sometimes moderate and mild, sometimes unpredictable and complex, the line is also a symbol of time seen through the eyes of the Jadro, which has remained preserved through the centuries and will be here for a long time as a valuable legacy that we preserve from oblivion for all those who are yet to discover the true greatness of this small river.

Archaeological Museum

The Salona Collection and Site, spanning over 9 hectares within and outside the ancient city walls, meticulously preserves both movable and fixed monuments. Originating from extensive excavations by the Archaeological Museum in Split since 1970, these artifacts include discoveries from Salona as well as its surrounding areas in Solin. Housed in depots in Tusculum, Manastirine, and the main museum building in Split, this collection, named the Salona Branch Collection and Site in 2005, boasts around 12,000 items.

A selection of movable finds is on display at Tusculum, constructed in 1898 by Father Frane Bulić, the museum’s visionary director. This building, adorned with architectural fragments from Salonitan sites, features an exhibit in the Father Frane Bulić Memorial Room and an outdoor garden showcasing Early Christian sarcophagi and other stone monuments.

Originally a Guest Room, the ground floor offered visitors a prelude to Salona, adorned with Early Christian motifs, including the central Good Shepherd motif. The Tusculum also housed the Biblioteca Patria, Bulić’s personal library, on the first floor. While the Tusculum lost some of its splendor after Bulić’s death, renovations began in the 1980s, transforming the Guest Room into the Memorial Room in 1984 and restoring its original appearance in 2008.

The upper floor now hosts a conference room and workspaces for museum curators, while the attic is dedicated to technical documentation and staff. Conservation and restoration activities, including stone monument storage, take place in indoor and outdoor workshops. The eastern wing’s upper floor serves multiple purposes, such as exhibitions, presentations, and educational workshops. The Salona Collection and Site is a testament to the dedication of the Archaeological Museum in preserving and presenting the rich history of Salona.
