Reviews from our customers
This is how holiday rental owners described Makarska
show more merchants and now for yachts, sailing boats and leisure boats for tourists. This helped it to become an important trading harbour, especially at the time of the Venetian and Turkish occupation. Today there are several boats a day from here to Sumartin on the island of Brač. On summer evenings the harbour is full of yachts and leisure boats and Kačić Square in the centre of town is overflowing with young people enjoying the entertainment and cultural programmes. The later it is at night, the more vibrant it gets on the seafront promenade (Riva) in Makarska, and the fuller the cafés, restaurants and discos. The best way to get to know the history of the town is to visit the Franciscan monastery, which recently celebrated its 500th anniversary. In its rooms you can admire the picture gallery, the library, a unique malacological museum (dedicated to the study and preservation of molluscs) and the Institute for Mountains and Sea. On Kačić Square there is also the St. Marcus Church. On the north side there are now the Gojak gallery in the old school, the municipal library, the music school and the headquarters of the Makarska Riviera broadcasting station. On the short there are the Municipal Museum and the church of St. Philip. In St. Petrus’s park there is the restored church of the same name, from which there is a wonderful view over the town, the great Biokovo mountain and the open sea. The town of Makarska lies at 43°17'38" latitude and 17°1'20’’ eastern longitude, so nearly in the middle of the north-western half of the Makarska coastal region.
Makarska is at the foot of the Biokovo mountain massif (1762m) that shelters the town from the temperamental continental climate, therefore it is surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation with warm winters and long, hot summers, accompanied by refreshing Mistral winds. Here there are more than 2750 hours of sunshine a year and the average temperature is over 20°C between June and September. The crystal clear sea also has a temperature of over 20°C from June to October.

Monumental Mount Biokovo, in its greatness and beauty, rises above the Makarska Riviera as an unconquerable protector of all villages in its vicinity and all the tourist towns near the coast that resemble a shining pearl necklace spreading at the mountain's foot.

Vepric, as well as the altar, confession booths, stations of the Cross, area for spiritual exercises, and paths for processions. Because of its natural beauty and peace, this location is regularly visited throughout the year, and especially during the pilgrimage days on February 11th, March 25th, August 15th, and September 7th.
