Dubrovnik is probably the best-known and most beautiful city of Croatia. It is located in the most southern part of the country - right on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. The prosperity of the city of Dubrovnik has always been based on maritime trade. In the middle ages, as the Republic of Ragusa, it became the only eastern Adriatic city-state to rival Venice. Supported by its wealth and skilled diplomacy, the city achieved a remarkable level of development, particularly during the 15th and 16th centuries. Dubrovnik is rich in cultural and historical monuments. The most recognisable feature, which defines the history of Dubrovnik and gives it its characteristic, are the intact city walls, which run uninterrupted for 1940 meters encircling the city. This complex structure is one of the most beautiful and strongest fort systems in Europe.
The island of Hvar is the queen of the Croatian Dalmatian islands and it has been famous since the antique because of its important strategic and nautical position, the rich of the various historical periods, the culture and natural monuments. Thanks to the very mild climate, beautiful beaches and Mediterranean vegetation it is one of the most attractive places in Europe. Besides Hvar town, there are several other well-known towns such as Stari Grad, located on the north part of the island, which was one of the first human settlements on the Adriatic islands during the Antiquity and still is the main sea port on the island; Jelsa is located in the central-northern part of the island and Sućuraj is a picturesque small town on the east cape of the island.
Split is the largest city in Dalmatia and the second-largest city of Croatia. Modern Split is the product of 17 centuries of building, renovating and remodelling. At the core of the sprawling cityscape is the palace of Emperor Diocletian, who had the massive palace built to spend the last years of his life after abdicating in May 305 AD. At the time it was built, there was no such city of Split, and the original town was later built around the palace. What began as an imperial residence and fortified camp is today an intriguing warren of narrow cobblestone streets, where pre-Romanesque churches live alongside Gothic chapels, history-filled museums, art galleries and inviting restaurants. Since 1979, the historic centre of Split has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
