Discover the beautiful Dalmatia
Dalmatia | The picturesque landscape of Dalmatia stretches from the island Rab in the northwest to the border with Montenegro in the southeast. Typical features of the coast in this traditional region are the fjord like bays as well as the islands off the coast. Cultural and touristic centres are the towns of Split, Dubrovnik, Zadar and Sibenik. In the small fishing villages and idyllic heartland you will find peace and seclusion. Beautiful sandy beaches are a special feature of the islands Rab and Pag. The other islands also are worth spending a vacation on. When on Pag don’t miss out on tasting the local delicassy feta cheese.
Worth a visit is Dalmatia's biggest city Split. Why do you not start at the Diokletian's Palace and take a stroll through the old town centre as well as along the promenade. Alternatively you could walk up to Marjan Hill where you have a wonderful view over the area. Should you want to take in some of the cultural treasures then we would recommend you to visit one of the larger museums of the town.
The Makarska Riviera provides you with some of the most charming beaches where you can relax and recharge those empty batteries. With the phenomenal setting of the Biokovo Mountains as a background make this location one of the unique parts of coastal strip to be found in Dalmatia.
In the south part of Dalmatia you will find the Konavle Valley also known as the “Garden of Dubrovnik”. A variety of vegetables as well as figs, olives and cypresses grow in these ideal surroundings. Equally important are the vineyards of this region that are spread out in this spacious valley. This diverse and fertile countryside invites you to go on extensive walks whilst enjoying the tranquillity that the area offers. Should you want to take in some of the local sights and sounds then you should visit the town of Cilipi where every Sunday folklore events take place.
