Trogir, the city with 2300 years of tradition, is a remarkable example of urban island settlement from the Hellenistic period. In first century Trogir became Roman municipality ‘Tragurium’, and joined to Salona, center of Roman province of Dalmatia. Upon the fall of the Roman Empire, Trogir has become an independent town. It has beautiful Romanesque churches which are complemented by the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period, and in 1997 UNESCO acknowledged Trogir as a World cultural Heritage.
 
3000 years old ‘Salona’, today Solin, was the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia and the birthplace of Emperor Diocletian. In the 7th century town was destroyed after the arrival of Avars and Croats, and refugees escaped to Diocletian’s Palace, in Split. Known as ‘The Cradle of Croatian history’, it was one of the capital cities in Medieval Croatian state, and a place where Croatian King
Demetrius Zvonimir was crowned in 11th century. Today, Solin preserved remains of old city and the arena, where gladiators fought till death.
 
The story of Split is already 17 centuries old, dating to the time the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his Palace right on the peninsula near the great Roman city Salona, where he wanted to spend the last years of his life. During these 1700 years the Palace slowly turned into a city, which to this day lures with its rich tradition, glorious history and beauty of its natural and cultural heritage.

Most of them (stećci) you can found along paths or along the old Roman roads that ran from Salona (Solin) to Narona (Vid kod Metkovića). Tombstones (stećci) are blocks that are placed in a specific order.

These clumsily and somewhat harshly treated monument have found their place in the history of Imotski region , and witnesses literacy, culture, faith and power in this region. Imotski tombstones have their own characteristics that distinguish them from other groups such as neighboring Cetina or Herzegovinian.
 
The Blue and the Red Lake have been recognized at the top tourist attraction of Imotski. Both lakes are natural phenomenon, also known as 'pearls of the nature'. The Blue Lake is almost bordering with the town of Imotski, while the Red Lake is only one kilometre away. Blue Lake got named after the colour of water in it, and Red Lake's name comes from the red stones that surrounds it. The Blue one is very attractive to media during periods of extreme drought because when the lake gets dry local people form play football at the bottom.
 
This winery's desire is to promote autochthonous varieties of the Dalmatian hinterland, such as Kujundžuša and Black Trnjka, but they do more exquisite wine from grape varieties such as Merlot, Chardonnay, Cormorant. Ripening in ancient stone cellar gives their wines peace and character.

Popularly known as ‘The Great Wall of Croatia’, more than five kilometers in length, Ston town walls are the longest complete fortress system around a town in Europe and the second in the world. Built in 15th century as a first line of defense, heavily fortified, with a purpose to protect a precious commodity – salt. With the tradition of harvesting salt for over 4000 years, ‘The City of Salt’ is confirmed even nowadays as the oldest active salt pans in the world.
 
Ston is a Dalmatian town you will fall in love with, and as playwright George Bernard Show once said, ‘There is no love sincerer than the love of food’ - an appropriate quote, because Ston is known as the home of one of the rarest, most delicious breed of oysters, which you will try.

They were lucky enough to own vineyards on the best geographical loction with the best grape variety for the given land. Most of the vineyards planted between 1950 and 1980 is 100% Plavac Mali. In 2006 their first premium vine "Plerej" was produced. In the next harvests they achieved exquisite quality grape yield of as small as 0.5 - 0.7 kg per grape vine. In 2009 they created "Plerej grand cru". Besides the wine, here you can taste all kinds of liquers as well as ecological olive oil they produce from the autochthonous variety Oblica.
 
The 'Pearl of the Adriatic', situated on the Dalmatian coast, became an important Mediterranean sea power from the 13th century onwards. Although severely damaged by an earthquake in 1667, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. Damaged again in the 1990s by armed conflict, it is now the focus of a major restoration program coordinated by UNESCO.
