Đardin, officially called Strossmayer’s Park, is a modern park nestled between the two bastions of Split’s Baroque-era fortifications. Its origins go back to the nineteenth century, when the area was first created following the removal of the aforementioned Baroque walls that encircled the outer area of the city. The park’s main highlights, is its beautiful Neo-Baroque fountain that was added to the park at the beginning of the twentieth century. The park’s present-day appearance dates to 2002, when it was last renovated.
A popular hangout place, Đardin is popular with tourists and locals alike. During the warm months, Đardin hosts several popular public events, such as Split Spring and Evo Ruke! Festival.
