Day 1 – Arrival to Split
Welcome to Split! As the second-biggest city in Croatia, Split is the main harbour in Dalmatia region and a starting point for many holidaymakers.
UNESCO-listed Diocletian’s Palace makes the core of the Old Town and a symbol of modern-day Split, incorporating an eclectic combination of Roman temples, Gothic palaces and modern Mediterranean-style stone houses.
Don’t miss Riva, Split’s palm tree-lined promenade, panorama from Marjan hill or simply walking the cobbled streets of the Old Town, infused with history.
Day 2 – (OPTIONAL) Explore Trogir and Klis fortress
Just outside of Split, lies another UNESCO-listed town – the island-town of Trogir.
On the way to Trogir, visit Klis fortress, lodged in the mountain above Split. In the past, it served as a line of defence against Mongols and Ottoman empire.
After you’ve explored the fortress and taken stunning photos, continue towards Trogir. This Medieval island town is another UNESCO-listed site in Croatia. Walk the streets of Trogir admiring preserved Kamerlengo castle and tower and a series of dwellings and palaces from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Connected with Trogir via bridge is Čiovo island, and with a short walk or a taxi drive, you can spend part of your day enjoying beautiful beaches.
Day 3 – (OPTIONAL) Visit Krka Waterfalls National Park and city of Sibenik
If you’d like to change scenery and swap cityscapes for landscapes, head over to Krka Waterfalls national park. Enjoy beautiful waterfalls and lakes and stroll along pathways winding through the lush flora. Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit as you’ll have an opportunity to have a swim in front of stunning Skradinski Buk waterfall.
Afterwards, visit city of Sibenik and admire its UNESCO-listed St James’s cathedral and fortresses surrounding the city. It’s possible to extend the visit so you can visit the local ethno village, with demonstrations in traditional food preparation, or visit birds of prey sanctuary
Day 4 – Arrival to Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful UNESCO- listed cities in the world, and not even severe shelling in 1991 has managed to take its beauty away. It continues brimming with marbled streets, imposing Medieval architecture and a host of awe inspiring defensive walls, churches and palaces.
Explore the city gates (Pile, Ploce or Buza) and take a stroll down Stradun, the widest and longest street in Old Town, and a place of gatherings and events. Admire Onofrio’s fountain, Orlando’s statue,
Discover the stunning Sponza and Rector’s Palaces at the end of Stradun, and climb up to Lovrijenac and Revelin fortresses.
Day 5 – (OPTIONAL) Walk Old City Walls
To explore Dubrovnik further, walk the stunning Old City walls, with St John’s, Bokar and Minceta tower forts along the way, for breath-taking views of Dubrovnik’s surroundings and watching waves crash into the fortifications. For a stunning sunset, take a cable car up Srdj hill, offering stunning panorama of Dubrovnik and Elaphiti islands in front.
End your day on a high note and treat yourself to a dinner or just a glass of wine at Panorama restaurant.
Day 6 – (OPTIONAL) Visit Lokrum island
For a day surrounded by nature and tranquillity, hop on a ferry for a day trip to Lokrum island nature reserve, offering beautiful wild beaches and remains of a 12th-13th century Benedictine monastery of St Mary and a cloister garden. Enjoy a day of nature, surrounded by Lokrum’s locals: peacocks and wild bunnies.
There is a simple café offering drinks and quick bites but it’s advisable to bring your own picnic if you plan on staying longer.
