DALMATIA - MEDITERRANEAN LIFE
Dalmatia is Croatia's largest tourist region. There are three large cities: three thousand year old city of Zadar, Split - residence to the Roman Emperor Diocletian, and Dubrovnik to the far south, a UNESCO World Heritage List city. Choose between larger places such as Sibenik, Trogir and Makarska or the tranquil places on the Zadar, ?ibenik and Makarska Rivieras. The Velebit and Biokovo mountain ranges, the Paklenica, Krka, Kornati and Mljet National Parks, wonderful speleological and diving locations, vineyards on the Peljesac peninsula and olive groves - all of this and much more can be found in sunny Dalmatia.
Croatia's coast with over 1100 islands is among the most indented on the Mediterranean, and is a favorite destination for tourists, especially boaters. The islands of Kornati and Dugi otok with its Telascica lake near the city of Zadar are particularly interesting, while the small islands near the city of Sibenik, such as Krapanj, are a great place for a tranquil holiday. The island of Hvar, home to the oldest theater in Europe and a summer festival, lies close to Split and has the most sunshine hours on the Adriatic.
The island of Brac is known for its 200 m sandy beach "Zlatni rat", heaven for surfers. You can also try hang gliding or simply have a good time in the numerous night clubs, restaurants.

If you are looking for a quiet holiday, Vis is the right destination due to the untouched nature and its few inhabitants. At the far south are the wooded island of Korcula, birthplace of Marco Polo and home to traditional knight dances, the island of Lastovo, known for its rich underwater, and the Elafiti islands close to Dubrovnik.
