Which places to visit on your trip to Dalmatia, Croatia? We have the answers and best recommendations in Split, Zadar and Dubrovnik.
Where is Dalmatia?
Dalmatia is one of the four historical regions of Croatia. It is a narrow belt of the east shore of the Adriatic Sea, stretching from the island of Rab in the north to the Bay of Kotor in the south.
Dalmatia is definitely a uniquely beautiful region in Croatia and also one of the most popular destinations for a vacation on the Adriatic Sea. It’s often called ‘Heart of Adriatic’.
How to enjoy your vacation in Dalmatia?
The most famous cities in Dalmatia are Split, Dubrovnik and Zadar.
Split is the biggest city and very popular. Splitska Riva – the famous promenade in the city – offers cute coffee spots, great nightlife, and amazing restaurants! When in Split, don’t miss the Diocletian Palace – the old cultural story! After sightseeing you deserve great food – so make sure you visit the favorite local burger bar.
If you’re a nature lover, you have to go to Marjan Forest Park, and one of the most beautiful beaches in Croatia. One of the most special things is also the Skywalk on Poljud – a unique adventure!
Thanks to HBO’s series Game of Thrones, Dubrovnik may be the most famous city on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast — but it’s not the only one with clear, ink-blue water, centuries-old walls, cathedrals, and a sunny Mediterranean climate. The walls of Dubrovnik are definitely the most famous spot in the old city. It gives you great views on the sea and on the old town, and it’s definitely a must. The city also offers top-quality Michelin restaurants with the most amazing views.
Zadar is very famous for Saharun, one of the country’s best beaches. Its white sand -unusual for Croatia – and gently deepening turquoise shallows have led some to compare it to the Caribbean.
The Sea organ is a must-see. This is an architectural sound art object located in Zadar and an experimental musical instrument, which creates lovely chimed tunes using only the rolling power of sea waves.
Greeting to the Sun is another installation of the brilliant architect symbolizing the communication between man and nature. This stirring monument consists of 300 multi-layered glass plates that absorb solar energy during the day and create a spectacular waterfront light show just after sunset.

Dalmatia can be best explored by car or rental car. This is a great way to visit all the beautiful places and attractions on your own.
