Central Dalmatia

The most populated and developed part of Dalmatia holds many tourist gems – Split, the largest city in Dalmatia and the second largest in Croatia, is the only city in the world which has developed from a palace – most of the old town consists of the monumental Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The historical centre of the neighboring town of Trogir, founded by Ancient Greeks, is another site on the UNESCO list. Sinjska alka, the equestrian tournament held in the town of Sinj every first Sunday in August to commemorate the victory against a much larger Ottoman army in 1715, is inscribed in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists and attracts many visitors each year. The area of Makarska, located at the foot of the magnificent mountain of Biokovo, is a well-known tourist destination, along with the islands of Brač, Hvar, Šolta and Vis.
