Dalmatia travel guide

Historic Walking Areas · Landmarks · Beaches
Known for its warm sea, wooded islands, preserved medieval cities, and beaches of white sand and soft pebble, Dalmatia remains separated from the inland area by a barren mountain range, the Dinaric Alps. Secluded coves, caves, coral reefs, shipwrecks, and Robinson Crusoe-style islets beckon visitors, who often come to explore by diving or yachting. Known for cuisine including seafood, Croatian wines, and olive oils, the region maintains a cozy atmosphere thanks to small, family-run restaurants. Fortified coastal towns here bear traces of the land's many conquerors, including Illyrians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Venetians, and Austro-Hungarians. Medieval piazzas and streets lined with Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque palaces welcome visitors with art festivals, food, and music.

Brac Island travel guide

Beaches · Mountains · Nightlife
Often overshadowed by the region's most popular tourist attraction Zlatni Rat, Brac Island offers a window into authentic island life along the Adriatic Sea. The island's historical heritage mixes with its vital folk culture. One of the symbols of the island, the quality white stone from Brac's quarries has been used for building many important edifices since Roman times. Amidst the island's hills you'll discover villages where you can taste sheep's milk and meat products as well as homemade wines. Folk festivals featuring extreme sports competitions, concerts, and nightlife make the island's small harbors especially appealing to younger crowds. The favorable winds of Bol's beach put it on many windsurfing itineraries.
