This region is a narrow stretch off the Croatian coast with its hinterland stretching from the city of Zadar in the North to a town of Cavtat in the south. Hot summers, red wines, light, healthy and tasty Mediterranean food, historic towns and islands of an untamed beauty, scent of herbs and sound of crickets make a patchwork of a Dalmatian atmosphere.
The name Dalmatia was given by its first known settlers, the Illyrs delme meaning sheep. As you walk in the shade of the narrow, windy streets of Dalmatian towns in the heat of the summer, you will hear the buzz of cicadas and feel the fragrant scent of rosemary and pine. One should take it easy, just as the locals say and do.
If you fancy culture, you will not miss out either. Architecture, history and tradition of Dalmatia offer inexhaustible choices. Cool and shady konobas are ideal for rest and a quick lunch. There, you should try fresh fish, prut, and cheese kept in olive oil with freshly baked bread. Or something substantial like lamb or octopus. There is also a wide variety of local wines, many of which have reached international esteem.
Split is in the middle part of Dalmatia, a town established in the ancient Roman period. The Roman emperor Diocletian chose this location for his senior days and the rest is history. Today, the remnants of the palace are the most important cultural monument, protected by UNESCO. In the cellars there is a number of small galleries with paintings, sculptures, jewelry and other nice things.
The exit from the cellars leads to the waterfront, the center of the social life during the day. At the northern entrance to the city there is a spectacular monument of Grgur Ninski, a bishop from this area. In order to make a wish happen, you make a wish, grab the statue by the big toe and the wish is supposed to come true.
Split is a great starting point to go sailing day trips to the island of Bra, which is the nearest island to Split, or further, to some more demanding routes, towards the islands of Hvar, Vis or Korula. In a marina or a local tourist office it is possible to get more information on day trips and possibilities of renting.
Bra: This island is the closest to the mainland, from all islands in middle Dalmatia (ferry boat rides last about half an hour). The island of Bra is famous for a nice pebble beach Zlatni Rat, and among windsurfers also very popular destination. To catch a spirit of an old fishermen's village it is recommendable to visit places like Postira, Puia and Gornji Humac and try traditonal wines and food.
Hvar: The island of Hvar has become popular destination in the last few years, as a trendy destination where international jet-setters are coming. Other towns on the island, like Stari Grad or Vrboska are muchmore quiet. In Stari Grad there is a renaissance villa, home to a famous Croatian poet from the renaissance period, Petar Hektorovi. It is possible to visit the villa, and see how the architect had the idea of depicting how planets work, with the example of this villa.
Vis: The island which is the most distant from the mainland, bearing the name Vis, which is also the name of the main port on the island. Inhabited in the ancient times, it has a long history which is kept in the Archaeological museum in Split. On the other side of the island there is a small town called Komia, overlooking the open sea. A typical fishermen's village with narrow streets with tall, narrow houses in other to protect from the strong winds from the sea.
