Dalmatia travel guide

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.

Island of the Sun
Hvar Island, "the queen of the Dalmatian islands," draws visitors to its beaches lapped by the crystal blue sea. Croatia's sunniest and longest island offers a mild climate, secluded pebble coves, ancient olive trees, vast lavender fields, and pine-forested hills. An important strategic and nautical point since prehistoric times, the island has been building its unique identity ever since. Experience the flavor of Hvar Island in small inns serving homemade wines, as locals sing old island songs. In contrast, the cosmopolitan Hvar offers luxurious five-star hotels, which can attract celebrities (and drive prices up). For a true Hvar experience, try private accommodations like hostels and apartments at private houses, which can service more diverse crowd. The town is crisscrossed by cobbled streets lined with Venetian palaces and offers exciting nightlife.
