Location

Split

Split, the second largest city in Croatia, is the home of the Diocletian Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site complex built in the third Century and covering a considerable area in the heart of the old town. Diocletian, noted for his persecution of early Christians, was supposedly a native of nearby Salona. As an emperor of Rome, he ruled for 20 years before retiring to this palace. The ancient town was built around the emperor's castle and nowadays is a major port and industrial center, as well as a perfect base for day trips to many nearby attractions.

Hvar

It is believed that the Hvar Island has been inhabited since Antiquity. In the fourth century BC, Greek settlers founded a trade colony here and called it Pharos (the Greek word for lighthouse). Later, as part of the Roman province of Dalmatia, the island was called Fara. When the Slavs settled here in the seventh century, they started calling the island Hvar.

In the following centuries, Venetians and Habsburgs sought to control the island because of its strategic location, fertile soil, and secluded harbors. Nowadays, Hvar is one of the most visited destinations on the Dalmatian Coast, which is undoubtedly influenced by its fabulous location and the fact that it has the highest number of sunny days in the year on the Adriatic Coast, but also thanks to the island’s long tradition culture and the arts.

Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik - Adriatic pearl, city monument, Libertas, Summer Festival… all these are links to Dubrovnik, a city of unique history and beauty which has amazed many writers, poets, architects, painters, singers, musicians, and all other visitors. Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean and the world, whose history dates from the seventh century.

However, with every new archeological finding, the finding data on the rudiment and history of Dubrovnik gets more in-depth and changes. There are innumerable stories from the lavish history of Dubrovnik told by the walls, palaces, streets, and roofs, but let you be the one who will discover your own story on the stone or in the sea, on Stradun or Porporela.
