EXPLORE THE DALMATIAN COAST

Croatia is one of the destinations that vacationist want to see with its Mediterranean ambience and dazzling natural beauty.

Croatia, governed by Roman, Byzantine, Venetians for more than 2,000 years, has an architectural and cultural richness. The Roman sites, Amphitheatre, Baroque churches and even churches open the door to a different world. Dubrovnik is a city with a museum inspired by medieval buildings and marble streets and numerous churches with the intense influence of the Baroque period.

The Dalmatian coast has a legendary beauty. It embraces the blue of the sea with its rocky and sandy beaches for miles. Some of the numerous islands in the Adriatic Sea with its glass-like waters are small enough to accommodate.

Split : Dalmatia's largest and most important city. It is also the administrative center of the split-Dalmatian region. Built on a small peninsula on the Balkan peninsula and the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea, Split is Croatia's second largest city after Zagreb. Split is a very touristic city which involves historical ruins, Roman Ruins of Salona, Trogir UNESCO,1700-year-old Dieklotian palace, seas, marinas, shopping areas, cafes, cruise port, islands and the Mediterranean coast.

Hvar: An island in the Adriatic Sea, which is connected to Croatia. It is located near the Dalmatian coast. The hills are covered with pine forests and grapes. Olives, fruits and lavender are produced within the scope of agriculture. There are four towns on the island. These are Hvar, Jelsa, Stari Grad and Sućuraj. Hvar is a high island with an average altitude of 628 m. It is known that 11.000 years ago was a part of the mainland.

Mljet: It is one of the southern Dalmatian archipelago. It is located in the south of the Peljesac peninsula, near Dubrovnik. In the northern part of the island, 5,4 square km2 area has been in the status of National Park since 1960. This verdant island has a rich flora. The most remarkable are Alpine pines. The Mljet National Park contains small karst valleys called ”blatine”, some caves and small islets along the coast. But the biggest feature of the two lakes in the park area: the larger one of these lakes is called “Veliko Jezero” (big lake), and the smaller one called “Malo Jezero” (small lake). These two salt water lakes are connected by a narrow channel. On the tiny island of Melita, located in the middle of Veliko Jezero, there is the St.Mary Church. This church was built in the twelfth century by the Benedictine priests. This small lake island and the beautiful church on it is considered the symbol of Mljet National Park.

Korcula: Korcula is the sixth largest island of the Adriatic. Although the island is famous for its stone masters, the stone workmanship has failed to come. These stone masters worked for the reconstruction of Dubrovnik and Kotor after the invasion of the city in 1571 and the great earthquake in 1667.  Besides the stone masonry of the region, the island is also famous for its shipbuilding.  While the best ships were built in Korcula at the time, for commercial reasons shipbuilding was damaged and most of the ship masters were scattered.  Korculeans  people have faced many times in history with the Venetians who specialized in shipbuilding just like themselves.

Vis:  It is an ideal holiday resort for those who want to escape from crowded tourist destinations. The island retains its authenticity with its crystal blue sea and beautiful caves. One of the most well known places of Vis is Bisevo, an island near the city of Komiza. The Blue Cave, known as the Adriatic Pearl, is located in the Golden Horn. The cave is reached by boat and visitors can dive in.
