Someone might call it square, but the locals know it as the best open air stage in the town. Built in the 19th century, this beautiful open air terrace, surrounded by the colonades, was named after Venetian’s procurative. It was part of the futuristic project of inspiring mayor of Split, dr Antonio Bajamonti, in 1863. It took him 4 years to build it and it also contained the theater “Bajamonti” within it.
Afterwards, in front of the square Bajamonti built a glorifying fountain, that became the symbol of Split, unfortunately it was torn down in 1947 and replaced by the simple construction that still stands on the site. The best known musical event that still keeps going on Prokurative is the “Split Summer Festival”, the best known summer festival of Croatian pop music.
