Just around the corner
Rogoznica, a pretty medditerranean town, is located in the northern part of Dalmatia. It is an ideal place for a peaceful and pleasant holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Considered one of the most picturesque resorts in Croatia. Culture and history are deeply rooted in this city, which is manifested by the architecture as well as pletore of beautiful and sacred sites.
The town is dominated by the parish church of St. Nicholas which features a bell tower built in the style of medieval Dalmatian architecture. The historic center of Rogoznica is situated on a peninsula that can only be reached by a bridge. On the opposite side of the bay there is a second peninsula, also part of Rogoznica. There is a yacht harbour as well as an unusual natural phenomenon in the form of a salt lake. Between the peninsulas lies the newer part of the city with numerous holiday apartments and hotels. Two parts are connected by a seaside boulevard and a bridge, perfect for strolling. The whole area is dominated by fragrant Mediterranean vegetation.
Rogoznica has a 54 km long coastline. Along the coast of the Rogoznica Riviera, there is a sequence of idyllic bays with hidden small coves. Inland, there are many, still very much alive, traditional stone farmhouses where one can sample the area’s traditional specialties.
It is a perfect place for people who are looking for a quiet holiday, but not completely without entertainment. Rogoznica represents a perfect location and a great starting point for all excursions to the nearby sites and attractions. When accommodated in Rogoznica, you can make daily trips to all most popular destinations, such as Trogir, Šibenik, Split or even Dubrovnik. We also recommend going to the nearby islands of Brac and Hvar.
The Dalmatia – Šibenik region consists of clusters of islands, the area is known as the Dalmatian hinterland, with the towns of Drniš and Knin, and the city of Šibenik, which is the main city of the region. The area is famous for excursions as well as walking and cycling trails.
Many old stone houses have been converted into restaurants with a wide selection of traditional Dalmatian dishes, wines and brandies. The air is filled with the fragrance of sage, laurel and rosemary, which will certainly give any guest the feeling of primordial nature.
There are two national parks: the unique beauty Kornati, with 89 uninhabited islands, islets and cliffs, and Krka with its seven magnificent waterfalls, the most beautiful being at Skradin and Roški, and the most amazing river of the Croatian karst landscape.
Other places worth a visit certainly include Šibenik, with the Cathedral of St. James, its four fortresses (St. Mihovil, St. John, Ivan Barone, or Šubićevac, and St. Nicholas on the island of Ljuljevac at the entrance to St. Anthony Channel). You can also visit the Faust Vrančić Memorial Center, which is dedicated to the inventor of the parachute.
Other nearby tourist sites are the port of Prvić on the island of the same name, Kornati National Park and the island of Murter – “Vrata Kornata,” is attractive for sailors; Sinjal on Mt. Dinara, the highest peak in Croatia (1,831 meters); Mt. Promina with its peak Čavnovka (1,148 meters); Zlarin, an island of coral and coral harvesting plus abundant vegetation; and Krapanj, the smallest and with the lowest elevation (1.5m above sea level) island of the Adriatic. The island has a long history of deep sea diving as well as the industry of sea sponge processing.
UNESCO world heritage list
Trogir was founded by Greek settlers 3000 years ago. It is one of the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic towns in central Europe and this fact brought it onto the UNESCO world heritage list. It would indeed be very hard to list all the artistic values Trogir hides in its narrow stone streets. However, one of them just cannot be missed – the Cathedral’s monumental portal, the most important piece of stonework in Dalmatia.
Trogir is often called a museum town. The reason for this is apparent after visiting the fortresses of Kamerlengo and Saint Mark, the Cipiko Palace, the Cathedral of Saint Lawrence and its treasury or the oldest written monument in Trogir area, a relief of the Greek god Kairos, which dates back the 3rd century BC.
Main city in Dalmatia
Split is the main city in Dalmatia and it’s most recognizable for the Diocletian’s palace, the best-preserved Roman building in the world, protected by UNESCO. Its labyrinthine streets vividly evoke the capital of the Roman empire. Another prominent symbol of Split is the bell tower of Saint Dominus, as well as the 8.5m bronze statue of Gregory of Nin, situated in front of the Golden Gate of Diocletian’s palace. According to the legend, rubbing the statue’s big toe is said to bring good luck.
Split is watched over by Marjan hill, the colloquial “lungs of the city”, which hide many treasures within its bosom. Croatia’s greatest sculptor, Ivan Meštrović, has his gallery there. Also, do not miss an opportunity to climb one of the vantage points which offer breathtaking vistas of Split and its surroundings.
Split has an impressive offer of concerts, festivals and exhibitions, delectable enough for even the pickiest palates. City life is at its best at the Pazar, the central market square. One can continue soaking up the local atmosphere by walking on the Riva, Split’s central promenade lined up with cafes and restaurants.
