What makes this country special is its diversity of regions; Croatia covers numerous geographical and historical locales, of different origins, sizes, stories and appeal. The best-known are Dalmatia, Istria, and Central Croatia. Let us show you around.
Split is a 1,700-year-old city and one of the most beautiful UNESCO-recognize pearls. Known worldwide for one of the best-preserved Roman monuments, Diocletian’s Palace, Split is a lovely blend of tradition and modernity. See it for yourself in the very core of the city where many shops, restaurants, and art galleries give life to old walls of the palace. Ideally located, Split became an important transition point to the Dalmatian islands, but also a link to the wild nature of Hinterland. With several beautiful beaches, rich history, a good food, an interesting cultural scene, and great weather year-round, Split is just the right place for the Mediterranean experience.
Supetar is the island’s capital, so to speak. It’s the only city on the island, developing fast in the past few years. It’s the administrative, transportation and cultural center of the island Brač. Rich cultural and historical heritage of Supetar will take you back to Roman times. Walking down the cobble-stoned streets and across romantic squares “pjacete” will make you understand the true spirit of a Dalmatian coastal town. With a rich offer in accommodation such as hotels, villas, residential houses and apartments, with diverse restaurants, cultural events and festivals, Supetar is one of the most popular places on the island. In numerous restaurants and traditional taverns you can taste the magnificent Mediterranean food.
The City of Hvar is often described as a true fairytale city with its architecture, natural beauty and mild climate. It is a unique fusion of luxurious Mediterranean nature, rich cultural and historical heritage, and typical tourist activities. Hvar found its glory and power during Middle Ages, being an important port within the Venetian naval empire. Today, it is the centre of island’s tourism and one of the favourite destinations in Dalmatian Riviera – a town of smiling and courteous people, who are almost solely dedicated to tourism.
Vela Luka is located on the western side of the island of Korčula at the bottom of a wide bay which
has many indented coves. Vela Luka developed at the beginning of the 19th century in a deep
sheltered bay. Its name means “big harbour” in Croatian chakavian. The inhabitants, 4130 of them,
are farmers, fishermen and workers in tourism. Also the town has other smaller industrial plants.
Vela Luka has an average of over 2500 hours of sunny weather annually, and is the second largest
place, in size, on the Adriatic islands.
The town of Korčula, the historical center of the island, has a beautiful location in the Pelješac Channel. It is also known for its outstanding cultural and historical heritage and a long tradition in seafaring, shipbuilding and stone masonry. It is considered to be the birthplace of the adventurer and traveler Marco Polo. Today Korčula is an important tourist center. Tourism has a long tradition on the island.
Mljet – a green island which will enchant you with colors and scents of untouched nature. A vast green area attracts lovers of active life and we can safely say that there are no guests who did not try a cycle or a hiking path to explore this green pearl. Adventurers use a kayak or a canoe to search for hidden coves, beaches and grottoes. Although Mljet is well connected with Split, Dubrovnik and the nearby islands, nautical tourists are the most frequent visitors; for them, Mljet is an obligatory port. Mljet cuisine is very diverse and you can enjoy dishes prepared after old recipes. Apart from fish and shellfish, you can enjoy eel stew, smoked fish, goat milk cheese in oil, various sides of bean plants and venison, and almonds dipped in forest honey.
Dubrovnik, also known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” is a city of exceptional beauty. This world-renowned destination is one that everybody falls in love with at first sight. And for good reason! The majestic city walls, the Minceta, Lovrijenac and Revelin fortresses, Onofrio’s fountain, St. Vlaho’s Church, Stradun and even the main street, make for stunning moments and captivating photos. Aside from the history and beauty, Dubrovnik offers excellent nightlife, the best restaurants and wine bars, a number of authentic delicacies, and a wealth of souvenirs.
