Historic Walking Areas · Landmarks · Historic Sites
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.
