It is a very popular destination, known for its rocky landscape with beautiful crystal clear sea with many islands, hidden bays, beaches, cliffs, groves, sea straits and vast high seas, typically Mediterranean climate with hot and dry summers and cool and rainy winters, for its picturesque small towns, rich in culture and some bigger cities. Central Dalmatia is among other also known for many gastronomic specialties, seafood and meat dishes.
The biggest and the most important city in this region is Split, the second biggest city in the country. It is the administrative, traffic and cultural center of Dalmatia (Diocletian’s palace under the protection of UNESCO, Cathedral of St. Duje, National theatre, Archeological Museum, Ethnographical museum, the Ivan Mestrovic Gallery, Perystile, Marjan). Due to its central position it became the connection between the land and the islands. Its airport is the second largest in Croatia and the harbor is between the biggest on the Croatian coast.

The Dalmatian coast is a very indented coast with more than a thousand islands and islets and many of them are situated in this region (170 island, islets, rocks and reefs). They became the main attraction of this region and they vary from smaller ones (Solta, Vis and its archipelago, Pakleni islands) for a quiet and relaxed holiday to those bigger ones (Brac, Hvar) with a lot of natural and cultural phenomena but also with a rich entertainment and sport offer.
