to the Split Mayor, Ivo Baldasar and local authorities
This petition calls the Mayor of Split, Ivo Baldasar and local authorities to reject the proposal to build a taxi rank and a bus stand on a newly discovered archaeological site in Split, Croatia.

Located on the seafront, by the UNESCO listed Diocletian palace, the remains are dating back to the ancient Greek times and serve as a proof the Greeks were stationed here way before the arrival of Romans. As such this represents a significant discovery and is of importance to the local heritage, tourism and archaeology.

Unfortunately, it seems the site has been filled up with concrete and street levelled already. The location could have been turned into a novel tourist attraction covered by a partitioned glass floor for visitors to walk on, cycle or even drive over.

It would transform the appearance of the area
with an extremely attractive means of displaying historic remains and would add to the city's many attractions and historic locations.

The alternative view is for the entire site to be relocated to a museum to permit the construction of so much needed taxi and bus hub.

Please sign and share if you still believe there's a way to make the politicians rethink their decision and save the site.
