Makarska Riviera

Peninsula Peljeska

The Plejeska Peninsula is famous for its excellent red wines grown here.

Korcula

The island of Korcula is known since ancient times as the "Black Island", because of their large pine forests. Korcula is the birthplace of the famous explorer and traveler Marco Polo. Because of the fortress walls and towers, well-preserved Korcula is one of the most beautiful towns of Dalmatia.

Old Town of Dubrovnik

Highlicht: 1½ hour walk on the city wall
The walk starts from the left side of Onofrio Fountain at the Pile Gate (entryfee 50 Kuna). The Old Town of Dubrovnik is UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Island Mljet

From Pomena a footpath leads into the National Park Mljet. Two salt water lakes separated by a small bridge are perfect for swimming. In the larger saltwater lake Veliko Jezero is a semi-ruined Benedictine monastery from the 12th Century on the island of St. Mary (Sveta Marija Monastery). The boat ride to the island is included in the entrance fee to the Mljet National Park.
The salt water lakes invite us for swimming. The water temperature is always about 2 C above the temperature of the sea water.

Hvar

Through the strait Splitska Vrata (Split Gate) the sailing ship cruises between the islands of Solta and Brac and continues to Hvar, known for its mild climate and large lavender fields. Lavender as essential oil or as dried flowers in olfactory pillows you can buy in the old town of Hvar on every corner. The smell of lavender in the closet is an excellent protection against moths and other vermin.
The climb to the fortress "Spanjola" with fantastic panoramic views down to the old town of Hvar and the offshore islands takes about 20 min.

The old town of Trogir - also called museum city - belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
