Olives, indigenous aromatic plants, brilliancy of white stone against the verdant vegetation, and the towering mountain massif of Biokovo, whose spurs reach all the way to the sea – yes, this is indeed an exceptional part of the country, and its beauty is made all the more enchanting by numerous historic events, monuments, and cultural manifestations. In the year 305, the Roman Emperor Diocletian, who ruled the entire world at that time, decided to build his leisure time abode – in which he intended to spend the rest of his life. He had no doubt as to exactly where to build it, the very heart of Dalmatia, in the bay of Aspalathos. It’s well protected from the sea by the islands of the Split archipelago and defended on its landward side by high mountains, this allowed Diocletian to create a special point on the map of the Adriatic: the future city of Split.

Day 7

Split – Krka National Park – Šibenik – Split

The largest part of this amazing river’s course is the national park, which, in addition to its natural phenomena, abounds with cultural and historical monuments. The most outstanding of these is the Franciscan monastery on the tiny island of Visovac, set in the middle of the lake widening in the river like a precious stone. Within the monastery, there is a picture gallery and a church, origins of which are traced back to the 14th century. In the middle of the canyon, upstream of the river, is an interesting Krka Orthodox monastery; while on the high ground above the river several old ruins sit. The old mills, which have been transformed into small ethnographic museums where one can see how wheat was ground in the olden days, are a popular attraction for visitors. Heritage interpreters are dressed in traditional folk costumes, which is particularly interesting and entertaining for children, who are frequent visitors of the park. However, the main attraction of Krka National Park lies in its seven waterfalls. The widest of these is Roški Slap, but Skradinski Buk is the biggest and most well known.

Croatia is perfectly suited for walkers, and there are numerous interesting walks across the country. The most picturesque ones tend to be those in Plitvice Lakes, Krka, and Paklenica National Parks and on the islands of Brijuni and Mljet. Those interested in something a bit more strenuous – hiking – may like to head to Mount Biokovo (above Makarska) and the Velebit mountains (northern Dalmatia). 

Šibenik is unique because of its fortresses and towers, Sv. Mihovil [St. Mihovil], Sv. Nikola  [St. Nicholas], Sv. Ivan [St. John] and Šubićevac. Šibenik is most famous for the cathedral of Sv. Jakov [St. Jacob]. Constructed in the 15th century by the masterful hands of Juraj Dalmatinac and Nikola Firentinac, this cathedral was entered onto the UNESCO World Heritage Site list and, at the same time, voted the most beautiful sacral building in Croatia because of its original architecture of large stone slabs.
