Central Dalmatia

SPLIT

One of the biggest house music festivals in Europe, ULTRA, is held in Split, gathering around 150 000 visitors and fans of electro music. However, apart from the festival during the last couple of years tourists started discovering the architectural and cultural beauty of the so-called “Croatian Barcelona”, namely: Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO heritage site, the Temple of Jupiter, the Republic Square surrounded on three sides by a collection of elaborate neo-Renaissance buildings (known as the Prokurative) and the Cathedral of Saint Domnius (colloquially: St. Duje). The city became popular among younger generations, so new, smart boutique hostels have sprung up in the last couple of years. One of them is “Golly and bossy”, which was awarded 2nd best hostel in the world in 2011.

OMIŠ

You can find the biggest and the most complex zipline in Croatia right in the vicinity of this small Dalmatian town and harbor: 8 steel cables, total length 2100 meters over the impressive canyon of the river Cetina. This adrenaline-rush adventure takes around 3 hours. Omiš is situated in the mouth of Cetina River where historic architecture clashes with the surrounding gorges. Be sure not to miss Pirates Nights, one of many summer events on the once notorious pirate territory 🙂
