Essential Dalmatia

Split, Hvar & Dubrovnik

The Dalmatian coast stretches from Dubrovnik, close to the Montenegrin border, all the way to Split, in the middle of the coast. With the impressive Diocletian Palace, Split is a must for anyone interested in Ancient Roman history, while art lovers should not miss the Mestrovic gallery. A short boat ride away is the island of Hvar, with some of the finest hotels in the country and the most interesting wineries. Dubrovnik is Croatia’s best-known destination, but besides its charming Old Town, there is plenty to discover nearby – from silk artists in the Konavle region to tiny fishermen’s villages on the islands of Lopud and Šipan, to the gardens of the Tresteno Arboretum.

Waterfall Wonders

With its seven travertine waterfalls Krka River is a natural phenomenon. You can also find ruins in the park that date back to Roman times, such as the catacombs under the Krka monastery in the north of the park.

Emperor's Legacy

The central heart of Split is The Diocletian Palace, one of the most impressive Roman UNESCO Heritage sites in the world. The Roman Emperor Diocletian built himself a palace for his retirement.  After his death and many years later a town began to thrive within its walls.

The center of Split does feel like a film set and was also made famous by Game of Thrones. Some of the best-preserved sites you can visit are the Vestibule, the Temple of Jupiter, the Peristyle, and Diocletian’s Mausoleum – now the Cathedral of St. Dominus. Explore this fascinating city with your private guide.

Pakleni Islands adventure

What could be better than being on the water in the Adriatic with your own private motorboat? We love the Pakleni Islands. These islands face the town of Hvar and are uninhabited and mostly woodlands. They feature a myriad of small, secluded beaches. The beaches themselves are gorgeous and great for a stop for lunch or to relax and you can discuss your itinerary with your skipper on the day.
