Tourist board of Split
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.
Diocletian Palace and the entire historical core of Split have been on the World Heritage UNESCO list ever since 1979, and not only for the extraordinary preservation of the Palace, but also because the Palace and its city (or the city and its Palace, if you like) continue to live a full life. All historical layers from the old Rome, middle ages till today are still visible and alive in this structure. A walk through the ancient city takes you through time, along the great examples of ancient architecture like Peristyle, the middle aged Romanesque Church and Gothic Palace, Renaissance portals of the noblemen’s houses, Baroque facades and modern architecture superbly merged in the rich heritage.
Such stratification is mirrored in everyday life of Split. Local inhabitants sit in the same cafes, restaurants, shop in the same stores as tourists, giving them the impression that, by arriving to Split, they became a part of the city and its rhythm. The vegetable market and the fish market represent the centre of each family’s life in Split, just as the entire social life of this city of 200 thousand reflects on the Riva (waterfront), where every guest should endeavour to have his coffee alongside noisy, temperamental folk of Split.
Split is much more than glorious architectural scenery. Split is also a venue for excellent gourmet and vine experiences, numerous cultural happenings like film and theatre festivals, exhibitions, excellent museums and concerts, a city which offers eclectic modes of entertainment starting with numerous clubs and bars, through street festivals to events such as Ultra Europe Festival visited each year by up to 100 thousand young people from around one hundred countries of the world. Split with its sport results is something only a handful of cities of similar size around the world can boast about as it is the home of a dozen Olympic medal winners as well as other sports medals.
When you tire of the city bustle, there’s Marjan, hill symbol over the city, with its forest, jogging trails, mountain climbing and biking, recreational terrains, but also the ancient churches where the late citizens of Split sought spiritual peace. Also very unusual to find in a city the size of Split are the numerous beaches with extraordinarily clean sea, from the well known Bačvice to the stone secluded oases’ all around Marjan.
After all that’s said are you at all surprised that citizens of Split have a saying "There is no place like Split”?

Tourist board of Supetar
Supetar is really the right place for an ideal holiday…a charming sun in the front of which the blue strand unwinds like a ingenous innocence of a girl….and in the evening, a deep peace…in the heart of that poor soil and ungrateful stone, there is a moment of a high and passionate domestic poetry, a source of beauty that invites to stop….so many stars whose flickers are discreet….peace is entering into my being…”. These are words used by Tin Ujević in 1929 to describe Brač and Supetar. Today, Supetar is town with more than 4000 inhabitants, breathing the original Dalmatian way of life. But that marvellous peace, event today in another form, is still present. Those who once visits Supetar, always wants to return.
Supetar is a real island town and the biggest Brač’s village. A real heart of the island located in its northern part. It is also an excellent starting point for exploring this beautiful, diverse and very interesting island.

Tourist board of Vrboska
Along a narrow and curving fjord , unusual only as wonders are on Hvar island, there lies Vrboska – the smallest town on the island.
But even if it is the smallest, Vrboska is the treasure of the island. Founded in the 15th century, it is often reffered to as "Little Venice" due to numerous small bridges.
From the entrance, which is its widest part, surrounded with thick pine forest, it narrows curving into a canal along both sides of which are situated picturesque architectural objects of Gothic, Neo- Renaissance and Baroque style.
The narrow, curving, streets, the pine forest, the stone buildings and a small islet in the middle of the cove, bathed in sunshine and hidden in the depths of the bay. An image resembling those from old postcards…
This little place will bring life back to a tiresome body, and necessary peace to one's spirit. Everyone can verify this by coming here.
The Vrboska area was inhabited even in ancient times, to which ruins of Roman building testify. It grew from a fishermen's village and harbour to a place called Vrbanj (hence its own name Vrboska) in 15th century into a small town which outshines even the bigger and better known places on the island by its beauty.
Vrboska is comprised of two parts. Pjaca (eastern part) and Podva (western part).
Typical Mediterranean local architecture of small houses on both sides of the canal connected to old town houses from the periods of Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque, as well as old churches on one side of the canal and rich villas on the other side gives the place special charm and warmth.
A rich fishermen's tradition in Vrboska can easily be seen in the local gastronomic offer. Healthy food from surrounding fields and freshly caught fish with home-made olive oil and aromatic herbs represents a unique gourmet experience.
Add a glass of one of Hvar's well known wines and the experience is complete.
