Dalmatia is a region that has a lot of diversity. It is rich of sights and historical treasures. In Zadar you will find century old monuments and historical buildings, but also cities such as Makarska and Dubrovnik are worth it to visit.
Along the coast there are fine pebble beaches, cozy harbours and beautiful bays. These bays invite you to snorkle or dive, which is even possible in September because of the good temperatures. From the coast you have a beautiful view at one hundred fourty islands which belong to Dalmatia. The islands of the Zadar archipel are proclaimed to national park Kornati. No less than five of the seven national parks are situated in Dalmatia.
A lot of wine is grown in Dalmatia. These vineyards are an important part of the landscape. They are located on stone slopes and are enclosed with low pile walls that have been laid out with precision by the local farmers. If you drive along the coast you should not miss this.
