A rich heritage in the heart of Croatia

Split’s Days of Yore


The city of Split in Croatia was found in the 2nd century BC as a Greek colony of Aspalathos. Split became prominent in the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD when the Romans built the Diocletian Palace.

In 650 AD, it succeeded as the ancient capital of the Roman province of Dalmatian, Solana. The Romans and Venetians ruled for many centuries until 1797. Croatia has a long and vital history lasting over 2000 years. Thereby making the old town in Split a central part of this history.

Zephyrus- A Hotel Steeped in History

In 2003, Michael and Valda from Australia visited Split and fell in love with the city’s charm and beauty. Before returning home, they purchased a five-story building in the old town of Varos.

Situated within walking distance of the palace, parts of Zephyrus date back to the 3rd century. Besides, the building boasts the first Roman kitchen built to feed the workers building Diocletian’s Palace. The other parts of the building date back to 900 AD.

While renovating this building, Michael and Valda wished to keep the spirit of Split alive and named the hotel Zephyrus. Zephyrus is a Greek word that means a gentle breeze from the west. Zephyrus reflects the heritage of Split and the new direction the building would take moving forward.

Subsequently, the interiors of the building were completely renovated in 2004 from the ground up. The original walls and exterior were kept intact to maintain the heritage of the building. Zephyrus offers contemporary and modern facilities expected with its 4-star rating, making it one of the best and highly-ranked accommodation in Split.

A Haven For Comfort & Luxury

Michael and Valda wanted to present a small piece of comfort and luxury in the heart of the old town. In the summer of 2005, Zephyrus was open for business. Our philosophy has always been to provide high-quality accommodation at a reasonable price with friendly and excellent service. Our goal is to provide travellers with a luxury stay at one of the highly-ranked 4-star accommodations in this region.
