Visit Croatia - Places to See
Split The second largest seaport. It is famous for its well-preserved Diocletian Palace, which was built by the Emperor Diocletian at the end of the 4th century as a summer residence. Its dimensions make it the most important monument of Roman architecture on the Adriatic. Still standing are 3 of its corner towers, the four gates, walls, Jupiter's Temple, Mausoleum (Cathedral), and the vestibule. Fabulous!

Trogir It is a "museum town" representative of Dalmatian History. Situated on an island connected to the mainland by a bridge. There are remains from Classical times (a relief showing the Deity and Petronius), the Middle Ages, Romanesque (Cathedral of St. Lovro), Gothic (Duke's Court), Renaissance (Loggia and Lucic Palace), and Baroque (Famfogna Palace). Great!

Zadar ... is situated on a peninsula... many historical monuments... remains of the Roman Forum, Trajan's Arch of Triumph, 9th c. Sventi Donal Church, 13th c. Cathedral, and many Medieval churches... cobbled streets.

Plitvice Lakes: This area is a National Park near Zagreb and is one of the greatest tourist attractions in the world. Here, there are 16 lakes connected by cascading waterfalls, and lots of wild animals... bear, deer, boar... and 50,000 acres. It is very crowded during peak season. It is best to take walks or an electric boat trip on the lake. The buses are too crowded. One beautiful spot!

Opatija is a well-known tourist resort on the Adriatic coast... situated at the foot of Moment Ucka... surrounded by lush green parks and sandy, pebble and rocky beaches.

The Islands

About 1000 islands are scattered up the Adriatic. Many people say they rival the Greek Islands. The following islands can be visited from Dubrovnik.

Korcula: A large island with many monuments... 13th c. Cathedral, Doge's Palace, Old City, Towers, Loggia... lush vegetation. The town of Korcula is a beautifully preserved old town surrounded by walls... with many medieval monuments.

Mljet: The most wooded and warmest of all Adriatic Islands... 2 lakes... traces of Roman buildings and fortifications, 11th c. Benedictine Monastery... most beautiful island.

Sipah: The largest of a string of islands protecting the mainland of Dubrovnik. It has magnificent pinewoods and beautiful beaches.

Lopud: A pleasant and quiet resort... rocky beaches... many caves... interesting churches.

Lokrum: A national park with rich tropical vegetation and good bathing.
