Tučepi is a small town and municipality in the Split-Dalmatia County of Croatia. It is located on the Adriatic coast of Dalmatia known as Makarska riviera, about 5 km southeast of Makarska, population 1,763 (2001). It is a popular tourist destination thanks to its scenic coastline, its opportunities for sports and its excellent accommodation.HistoryThe settlement of Tucepi was first settled four thousand years ago by the Illyrians. Until the earthquake of 1962, the majority of its inhabitants were living in scattered hamlets like Gornji Tučepi, Podpeč, Čoviči, Srida Sela, Šimiči, and Podstup at the lower foot of the mountain Biokovo and since the 18th century these towns have seen a gradual process of depopulation, as their inhabitants began moving down to Tučepi-Kraj, now a 4-km long resort.LegendAccording to a local folk legend, the Venetian Doge Pietri I Candiano is buried here. In fact, the first of the four Venetian Doges of the Candiano family, Pietro, died on 18 September, 886, in a battle against the Neretvans who defeated the Venetian fleet near Makarska. After his defeat the Venetian made a treaty with Prince Branimir in 888, agreeing to pay the Croatian rulers a tribute for the right to sail and trade unmolested along the Adriatic, which they had to adhere to until the end of the 10th century.Notable natives and residentsMarin Brbić, former president of Hajduk SplitDražen Lalić, sociologistŽanamari Lalić, singerAni Mijačika, tennis playerOur Croatia sightseeing planner allows you to plan your trip to Tucepi and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
