Zadar is a treasure trove of archaeological treasures and monuments to the ancient, medieval and Renaissance periods.

Stošije [St. Anastasia], an Archaeological Museum with its exceptional treasures and many other monuments of cultural and historical heritage (town gate, Arsenal, churches, museums…).

Split, a town on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, is the second-largest city of Croatia and the largest city of the region of Dalmatia. It lies on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea, centered on the Roman Palace of Emperor Diocletian.

The island of Vis was once a strategic naval Yugoslav base and closed to the public. Due to this isolation, Vis has a special charm – “the Mediterranean as it once was” – making it really interesting to visit. Situated on the northern side of the island, Vis has developed near the remains of the ancient Issa, first urban center in Croatia.

Brac island, Bol
Ston sits on the cape of land connecting the Pelješac Peninsula to the mainland. Known as a salt-producing town, Ston was an important military fort of the Ragusan Republic, and the defensive walls are world-famous. The 900 meter encircles the area for three miles – the second largest in the world after the Great Wall of China. Despite its military history, nowadays Ston is a small, laid-back fishing town, which boasts some dramatic views – think crumbling churches, olive groves, and a stunning coastline. Its former value as a “salt city” gets confirmed even today in the plants of the oldest active salt-works in the world. These saltworks have remained faithful to the tradition and to the natural way of salt production which has not changed since remote ages. Oysters and mussels from the Mali Ston bay are appreciated around the world.
Walls are built to protect treasures, and, in Dubrovnik, this is particularly accurate, with 1,940 meters of stone surrounding one of the world’s most beautiful cities. As George Bernard Shaw stated: “If you want to see heaven on Earth, come to Dubrovnik”. “The Pearl of the Adriatic” has captivated and seduced kings and artists for centuries with its immaculate medieval architecture.
Just south of Croatia along the Adriatic coast is the small country of Montenegro which surly packs a punch for visitors. With a similarly stunning coastline, you will be shocked to see how much natural variety exits within such a short distance, and we love the accessibility due to everything being fairly close by. Additionally, the huge variety of attractions ready for you to experience makes this country a fulfilling visit on its own or a phenomenal addition to time spent in neighboring countries like Serbia, Albania, or Bosnia & Herzegovina.
