Split walking tour will reveal some of the most iconic places of this ancient town, guide through the history and give a glimpse into the life of a modern Split.

The heart of Split is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Diocletian palace. Although it was built in Roman times, it is still a place where people live, do business and hang around. Narrow streets of the castle are filled with unsurpassable charm and beauty.

Diocletian Palace is an ancient yet vivacious and pulsating heart of the city, which is not very common.

Below the palace is Riva, palm-lined seafront promenade, world-famous for its beauty, lovely historic buildings and zen-inducing overlook at the Adriatic sea.

DAY 3: NATIONAL PARK KRKA WATERFALLS

National Park Krka is among the most popular and most beautiful Croatian national parks. Lush greenery, tranquil lakes, powerful waterfalls, and cultural sites relax and reinvigorate body and soul.

The mouth of the river Krka is a beautiful set of breathtaking features, waterfalls, stunning canyon, and crystalline lakes. It attracts nature lovers, hikers, cyclists and offers an exciting day for a trip away from crowded tourist trails.

The most appealing falls in the park, Skradinski Buk, consists of nearly 20 different waterfalls and is almost a half-mile long. Swimming beneath Skradinski Buk, in the clear crystalline pool, is a breathtakingly beautiful experience.

DAY 5: ISLAND OF BRAC – ISLAND OF HVAR (WINE TOUR & LUNCH)

With its beautiful renaissance architecture, inspiring cultural heritage and vitalizing Mediterranean nature, Hvar pretty much has everything. If there is a place that is closest to the idea of the renaissance Arkadia, Hvar might easily be one. A guided tour will prove that point.

Hvar is considered one of the top 10 beautiful islands in the world, and it has more Intangible UNESCO Heritage than any other island in the world. Add to that the title of the sunniest place in Europe, and you got a place you simply must visit. At least once in a lifetime.

Hvar is a calming place of sophisticated hedonism, shaped by the cultural influence of Venice, the Austrian Empire, and the authentic Dalmatia. Architecture buffs will be delighted by the town’s castle Fortress, Croatian theater and Arsenal, Franciscan monastery, Benedictine monastery, Croatia Cathedral, UNESCO’s Intangible Heritage of Stari Grad Plain and the picturesque white-stone houses and streets of Hvar’s villages and towns.

Very nice thing to see here is a subtle agave lace made by Hvar’s Benedictine nuns, UNESCO Intangible Heritage.

And finally, you must experience – klapa! If there is something that can convey the spirit of the southern Dalmatia – it is the klapa multipart singing. Sitting with a glass of Hvar wine, listening to the klapa, surrounded by the renaissance architecture of the Hvar will give you goosebumps and touch your soul to its deepest parts.

Your tour on Hvar will start in town Hvar. After sightseeing, the tour will end in picturesque Jelsa with a wine tasting in one of the most famous Hvar wineries. Indigenous rich Hvar wines paired with carefully selected local food blend into an enchanting wine tasting experience.

The last part of Hvar visit is a fabulous traditional lunch in an old, abandoned village Malo Grablje. The authentic taste of the luscious dalmatian food in the unique ambiance of the Malo Grablje properly wraps up the visit to beautiful Hvar.

Mesmerizing vineyards and olive groves around small villages radiate with a slow-paced rhythm of old-times Mediterranean. Korčula town, medieval walled Dalmatia city, shares the part of the history and architectural style. It resembles a miniature Dubrovnik. Marble streets, defensive walls, red-roofed stone houses, and their fishbone street structure are packed with heroic history and inspiring century of culture.
