CROATIA & ADRIATIC SEA

AN EXCITING AND TIMELESS DESTINATION

DUBROVNIK - SPLIT

 7 DAYS ITINERARY SAMPLE

DAY 1.

Dubrovnik The vista of the Old city of Dubrovnik is one of the best known panoramas of Croatia and whole Mediterranean area. For few are the cities which enjoy such a wonderful position on a rocky shoreline above the sea, and few are the places where Medieval stone walls and fortress are so well preserved... The 'Pearl of the Adriatic' was an important Mediterranean sea power from the 13th century onwards. Although severely damaged by an earthquake in 1667, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. 

Korcula is almost unique for the fish-bone pattern arrangement of its streets, and for its preserved Gothic-Renaissance buildings. Most intriguing for visitors to Korcula is the house of the Polo family, where its famous son came: the great world adventurer, Marco Polo. The people of Korcula lovingly maintain their heritage, as can be seen by the organization of church festivities, and medieval play of chivalry, the Moreska, which is enacted once each year trough the streets of the city 

Day 2.

The city of Hvar is a unique fusion of luxurious Mediterranean nature, rich cultural and historical heritage, and mundane, tourist present. It is situated in picturesque nature, facing the southern, side of the world that has given it all Mediterranean attraction and cheerfulness; facing the sea, that gave it splendid and repeatable history, Hvar is an inexhaustible treasury of the scenery, atmosphere and adventure. Its name derives from the Greek name for island and town-PHAROS. Hvar gained glory and power during middle ages being an important port within the Venetian, naval empire. Today, it is the centre of the island’s tourism and one of the favourite destinations in Dalmatian riviera a town of smiling and courteous people, who are almost only dedicated to tourism. 

Day 3.

Island of Vis -The farthest island of middle Dalmatia is Vis, famous for its clear sea and protecting the underwater world, rich in sunken ships and miraculous flora and fauna. Due to a large number of hidden bays, oases of peace which are hard to reach, it is a real paradise for sailors. Vis is a historical monument in its entirety because of the many preserved facilities (remnants of the Antique town of Issa, Roman spa, Issa necropolis, summer houses, churches, Tito’s cave). The town of Vis, on the northern side of the island, is located in a wide, peaceful bay, where sailors gladly drop anchor. This is exactly where Dalmatia's most important town, the Greek colony of Issa, was situatedB.C. Vis is also known for its gastronomic delicacies - the Vis anchovy scone and Vis bread, a delicacy dating back to Antique times and made of figs.

DAY 4.

Kornati - According to a legend, the Kornati, a maze of sea passages and islets, were created from a number of rocks God had leftover after creating the world. He tossed them into the sea, looked at them, and decided nothing else needed to be corrected. It is a group of about 130 islands & islets sprinkled in the deep blue sea of the Adriatic The Kornati archipelago is situated across the cities of  Zadar and Sibenik. The Kornati have no permanent inhabitants, although the present owners from nearby larger Dalmatian islands periodically visit the Kornati to tend their vineyards and olive groves, bringing their sheep to graze. The sea around the islands is rich with fish and a variety of marine life...

DAY 5.

Skradin - Such is Skradin, small, picturesque and filled with flavour, found at a point where the river passionately embraces the sea. At the border of reality and fantasy, perfect, both in past and present. Skradin had the first hydroelectric power plant in Europe, opened in 1895, at the same time as Tesla’s famous power plant at Niagara Falls! However, the main attraction is Krka National Park that lies in its seven waterfalls Skradinski Buk is the biggest and most well known. Its natural phenomena abound with cultural and historical monuments. The most outstanding 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, in the middle of the canyon, upstream of the river, 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. 

DAY 6.

Maslinica -Island of Solta. The coves of Solta, small kingdoms of heavenly sea and stillness, lure you into spending a holiday in an authentic ambience of a Dalmatian island, having preserved their natural beauty, the beaches of Solta present true oases of peace and probably the greatest value of the island. Since Maslinica is a village based on tradition, it lacks a modern beach with additional tourist attractions. There is a smaller beach in the cove of Tepli Bok, but the greatest value of this village lies in the fact that any cove you choose offers you a solitary place for bathing. 
Martinis Marchi is a hotel, marina & restaurant located in a historic castle in Maslinica. It is a place which vividly evokes visions of sparkling teal waters and a landscape dotted with olive trees.

DAY 7

Split -This eternally young city with around 200 thousand inhabitants has lived its urban rhythm for 1700 years with Diocletian's palace at its heart, which is also the historical centre of the city and a UNESCO world heritage site. Many valuable monuments of culture are located outside the walls of Diocletian's Palace. Located in the warmest part of the northern Mediterranean coast, in the very centre of the Adriatic coast, this tourist, economic and sports (Goran Ivanisevic, Branka Vlasic, Toni Kukoc) region guards its green soul on Marjan hill, where a forest park near the city offers a comfortable and quiet atmosphere and a walk far from the town noise. The rich offer for tourists as well as the unique cultural heritage and many cultural and tourist events gives Split its special charm and makes it an ideal holiday destination throughout the year.

8 DAYS ITINERARY SAMPLE

DAY 1.

KOTOR - Located along one of Montenegro's most beautiful bays is Kotor, a city of traders and famous sailors, with many stories to tell. The Old City of Kotor is a well-preserved urbanisation typical of the Middle Ages, built between the 12th and 14th century. Medieval architecture and numerous monuments of cultural heritage have made Kotor a UNESCO listed “World Natural and Historical Heritage Site".

DAY 4.

Krka National Park (Croatian: Nacionalni park Krka) is one of the Croatian national parks, named after the river Krka that it encloses. It is located along the middle-lower course of the Krka River in central Dalmatia, in Šibenik-Knin county, downstream Miljevci area, and just a few kilometres northeast of the city of Šibenik. It was formed to protect the Krka River and is intended primarily for scientific, cultural, educational, recreational, and tourism activities. It is the seventh national park in Croatia and was proclaimed a national park in 1985.

DAY 5.

KORNATI -According to a legend, the Kornati, a maze of sea passages and islets, were created from a number of rocks God had left over after creating the world.

DAY 6.

MALI LOŠINJ -It is a significant nautical port because it is located on a seafaring route between Istria and Dalmatia, and is one of the main tourist and maritime centres in the Croatian Adriatic.
The healthy effects of the island's climate, the warm sea, beautiful bays and excellent infrastructure mean that is ranked as one of Europe's top tourist destinations. The very clean and aromatic air has healing effects on the respiratory system, so visitors like to stay here throughout the year. In the islands fragrant gardens, visitors can learn about the rich flora of the island, and there are several attractive promenades that go through the forest park. A special curiosity of Mali Lošinj is bottle-nosed dolphins which inhabit its sea and contribute to an unforgettable atmosphere.  Around 100 of these favourite sea animals live in this area of Lošinj.

DAY 7.

BRIJUNI-The archipelago of Brijuni is an extraordinary blend of natural, historical and cultural heritage. The mild climate and the favourable geographical conditions, deep retracted bays and easily defendable elevated fortifications, have secured a continuum in the human activity on the island from a pre-historic age until the present day. On a relatively small archipelago, of an area of around 7km2, have been registered some hundred sites and buildings of archaeological and cultural-historical value and which comprise the period from the first Neolithic settlements, the dugouts in the bay of Soline, until the creation of an elite summer and health resort at the beginning of the last century and the presidential residency visited by statesmen from one third of the world’s countries in its 25 years of existence (1954-1979). The Brijuni Archipelago is today certainly one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Croatia.

DAY 8.

VENICE -The ethereal city of water and stone rises like a dream from the waters of the lagoon. Regional inhabitants founded Venice as a marshy haven from invading barbarians, and the city’s waterways became the heart of both its defences and its eerie beauty. Ornate palaces line the Grand Canal, a testament to the wealth and power of the Republic of Venice, which spanned nearly a millennium. St. Mark’s Square, designed to be approached from the water, has drawn a steady stream of awestruck travellers and artists for centuries. For modern visitors, part of the city’s unique appeal is its human scale and anachronistic carless infrastructure, with its narrow, mysterious streets and captivating canals, crossed by hundreds of gracefully arched marble bridges above and gliding, silent gondolas below. But La Serenissima, the most serene, has long struggled to maintain its moniker in the face of mass tourism, a declining resident population, and the physical decay of its buildings.

VENICE - SPLIT

8 DAYS ITINERARY SAMPLE

DAY 1.

VENICE- Truman Capote once said that VENICE is “like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go“. Truman Capote once said that VENICE is “like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go“. The city of romance, the city of arts, the city of music. Of the Carnival, Art & Architectural Bienalle, Mostra film festival. The city of Murano glass, of O sole Mio's. Still today, Venice puts its longstanding history on the travel map to a mighty purpose – leaving you breathless! Built on an archipelago of over one hundred islands, Venice is a grand web of 177 canals and 455 bridges! Completely traffic-free, it can be explored either on foot or by boat. Walking will bring you down many narrow streets through beautiful architecture to vibrant, lively squares and the only piazza in the town – the splendid St. Marco’s. While "Vaporettos", small boats, are like canal buses, a gondola ride, with the gondolier wearing a striped navy white T-shirt, is an image symbolic of Venice and is considered by far the most romantic thing to do here. Riding down the Grand Canal will also bring you to the Piazza San Marco, the main square which Napoleon supposedly called “the prettiest salon in Europe”. Hence, no visit to Venice is complete without an espresso at the Piazza, immersed in the magnificent views of the Basilica St. Marco and the Doge’s Palac

ROVINJ, the small peninsula-town on the Western coast of Istria, retains its historic appearance still today. Once a fishing town, today it is a lively tourist resort. Much of its form comes from the fact it was originally erected on an island, its restricted area resulting in crowded houses, narrow streets and small squares. Today, this gives you the cosy feeling of a small town. Rovinj is considered the place to be for all the lovers who enjoy the Mediterranean as it once was and all the sentimentalists seeking an atmosphere of the times forever gone by. Its sea vista is a beautiful sight, but the views of Rovinj are also spectacular from the Tower of St. Euphemia, 
its main church. The tower is 62 meters tall, the tallest in Istria and climbing it, although demanding, has a truly remarkable outcome. The views from the church plateau are wonderful sights of the open sea and numerous islets in the distance. The open seas in front of Rovinj offer some super exciting experiences and activities. Baron Gausch shipwreck site is an exciting diving excursion. Big game fishing or night fishing is also popular in the area. Finally, the beautiful archipelago of 22 islets in front of Rovinj is protected as natural heritage, but known as a sailing paradise!

KORNATI NATIONAL PARK, situated in the central Adriatic, is comprised of altogether 89 islands, islets and reefs.

This small Dalmatian town, near and well connected to Split by both land and the sea, is now beginning to function as its extension, as well as an interesting one-day excursion from Split. Originally built on an island, Trogir it today connected by bridges to land and with another island, Čiovo. The historical centre, built entirely of stone, becomes most vibrant when visited with a certified local guide explaining the stories behind the places, visits which can always be tailored to preference and interest. The geometrical street plan of Trogir originated from the Greeks. Mainly conforming to its original size, the city was further embellished by successive rulers, building beautiful public buildings and fortifications. Mainly Romanesque and Venetian-Gothic, many of these buildings still to this day preserve their public function. 
CROATIA CROATIA

The Stari Grad Plain is an agricultural landscape that to this day preserves its original Greek land organisation scheme, dividing a larger area into smaller plots with drywalls. The Plain is the last Croatian addition to the UNESCO World Heritage list and is the most spectacular when seen from the air. Other attractive Hvar panoramas include endless lavender fields, fruit orchards, olive groves and vineyards all over the island. Some of the best Croatian wines come from Hvar, and many of the vineyards can be visited for patron guided tastings. Surrounding Hvar, Pakleni Islands are possibly the prettiest part of it, if not of the whole Croatian Riviera. A beautiful sailing scenery, these wooded islets are only modestly developed, which gives them a special charm. The oldest and the most famous resort and nautical marina are Palmižana, a spacious lagoon with a shallow, sandy beach. 

DAY 8.

SPLIT is the heart of Dalmatia, home to the majority of its inhabitants and the second-largest city in Croatia. It is a close port to many popular Dalmatian islands, an important naval town and an international harbour. Two of the UNESCO protected Croatian sites are in Split area. Diocletian Palace is the historic core of contemporary Split but was once actually a whole Roman city. Built at the turn of the 4th century as a retirement residence for Emperor Diocletian, it was at times home for up to 9000 people. Today, Diocletian Palace it is a vibrant city core bustling with happenings and people at all times, also the home of the world’s oldest Cathedral - Sv. Duje. The other UNESCO site is the town of Trogir. Under thirty minutes away, it is a beautiful way to spend the day in the area. Other archaeological sites in the vicinity of Split, the Greek Issa and the Roman Salona, provide fabulous insights into the ancient history of the area. But when in Split, one must not miss immersing into the local’s favourite daily activity – enjoying a cup of coffee in one of the cafes along the modern Split Riva waterfront.

14 DAYS ITINERARY SAMPLE

DAY 1

MASLINICA, ISLAND OF SOLTA -The coves of Solta, small kingdoms of heavenly sea and stillness, lure you into spending a holiday in an authentic ambience of a Dalmatian island, having preserved their natural beauty, the beaches of Solta present true oases of a piece and probably the greatest value of the island. Since Maslinica is a village based on tradition, it lacks a modern beach with additional tourist attractions. There is a smaller beach in the cove of Tepli Bok, but the greatest value of this village lies in the fact that any cove you choose offers you a solitary place for bathing. 

DAY 2.

HVAR, ISLAND OF HVAR- is a unique fusion of luxurious Mediterranean nature, rich cultural and historical heritage, and mundane, tourist present. It is situated in picturesque nature, facing the southern, side of the world that has given it all Mediterranean attraction and cheerfulness; facing the sea, that gave it splendid and repeatable history, Hvar is an inexhaustible treasury of the scenery, atmosphere and adventure.

Today, it is the centre of the island’s tourism and one of the favourite destinations in Dalmatian riviera a town of smiling and courteous people, who are almost only dedicated to tourism.

DAY 3.

DAY 4.

ISLAND OF LASTOVO - Also known as Portorus is one of the biggest and the most beautiful bay on the island of Lastovo. Skrivena Luka means Hidden Harbour, and it is true that the bay can not be seen from the open sea. Skrivena Luka is located on the southern part of the island and is protected from the rough sea and strong winds. With 7 km long road, the bay is connected with the village of Lastovo, 17 km away is the port of Ubli. It is the hottest place on the island, too, making it vulnerable to the forest fires. The pine forests were destroyed several times, but not completely, there is still nice vegetation intact, especially close to the sea coast. The lighthouse Struga (built 1839), one of the oldest on the Adriatic sea, is hovering over the bay, reminding us of the old times, when the sailboats and the steamboats were depending on it ...

THE PAKLENI ISLANDS are located just off the southeast coast of Hvar island, and if you’ve ever stood on Hvar’s famous Riva promenade or climbed to the top of the fortress in Hvar Town, then you’ve undoubtedly made eyes with this chain of isles.
