Explore Dalmatia – Dubrovnik to Split – 8 Days

Dubrovnik - Jewel of the Adriatic - Adventures Croatia - Explore DalmatiaDay 1

Arrival to Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is a medieval city on the Croatian side of the Adriatic coastline and a treasure trove of cultural and historical monuments that were created throughout its thousand-year existence.   In the past, it was a city-republic and, alongside Venice, one of the most famous cultural-economic centers on the Mediterranean. In more recent times, it has become the center of modern cultural and tourist events: a city of summer festivals, an international parade of top musical and theatrical achievements, and a city of museums and galleries. These values have turned Dubrovnik into a place that offers a rich selection of various experiences and excitement, but also a complete holiday in a quiet and calming, mild Mediterranean ambiance and wonderful seaside landscapes.

The National Park is a spacious, primarily unaltered area of exceptional and multifaceted natural value, including one or more preserved or insignificantly altered ecosystems. The park is visited by more than a million visitors a year because the park is not only all about beauty, it even primarily to serve science, culture, education, and recreation, while even the tourism activities have also been introduced for its visitors. The biggest advantage of Krka National park is swimming! You can actually swim in the lakes at Krka, and it is more about having fun and enjoying yourself in a place that happens to be stunningly beautiful. However, the top attraction of Krka National Park lies in its seven waterfalls. The widest of these is Roški Slap, although Skradinski Buk is the largest and most famous.

Šibenik is unique because of its fortresses and towers such as 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] that was built in the 15th century.
