Croatia

It is as if the Croatian coast was specially created for yachting. Whether you’re looking for a reason to take up sailing or looking for the perfect spot to express your sailing prowess, Croatia welcomes you with plenty of emerald green islands, rocks artfully stretching out of the water, sandy and pebble beaches, and the cleanest water of the Adriatic Sea, the shades of which range from gentle turquoise color to dark sapphire. Add numerous historic towns and cities, which have survived ups and downs of civilizations from Ancient Rome and Byzantium to the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Yugoslavia, and you’ve got yourself an all-star vacation.



Each era has left its unique mark on the landscape of Croatia. Explore these treasured sights at the Arena in Pula, the Palace of Emperor Diocletian in Split, the Euphrasian Basilica in Poreč, the Old Town in Dubrovnik and Trogir, and many more. Like admiring a fresco in a museum, a sea cruise allows you to view all the richness and splendor of the local coast from a perfect distance. Take advantage of this ideal vantage point.


Popular sights

Sibenik
One of the most fascinating cities of Dalmatia, Šibenik, is already more than one thousand years old. The banks of the Krka River, royal origin, unbelievable beauty of local architecture, gentle sandy beach – all contributors to its permanent success with tourists. The Cathedral of St. Jacob subtly combines Gothic motives and features of the Roman style and is decorated with 74 stone busts of contemporaries of Juraj Dalmatinac (Giorgio Orsini). A wonderful view of Šibenik and the Adriatic Sea opens from the walls of the Saint Ana Fortress. You should definitely visit the Krka National Park, beaches on the Solaris Cape, and the thalassotherapy center with its six swimming pools and therapeutic mud. In summer, the city is filled with music during various festivals or medieval fairs.
Brac Island
There are two things to know about the island of Brać: the first, involves white limestone and the second, regards a rather peculiar beach. The white limestone, known as Brać limestone, is mined in local quarries. It was used to build the Palace of Diocletian in Split as well as to face the White House in Washington D.C.. Zlatni Rat is the name of the most unusual beach on the Croatian seacoast. It is located in the small fishermen’s village of Bol and has a unique feature – its southern end can change shape depending on the waves and wind. The beach stretches out into the sea for 300 meters, welcoming bathers from both sides. If vacation time on the beach is not included in your program, you should at least drop into the town of Supetar and buy a bottle of famous local wine Bolski Plavac.
Split
Split is the second largest city in Croatia, and a wonder to behold. Erected in the 4th century, it began with the construction of the splendid Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian. He is remembered for his reforms and persecution of Christians, however, the fate is not without irony – the mausoleum of the former Emperor was later restructured into a Christian cathedral. The historical center of Split is part of the UNESCO World Heritage List, owing this honour to the multitude of century-spanning constructions preserved there: the Temple of Jupiter, the Cathedral of St Domnius (Duje), the Procuration Square, the Golden Gate, and the Silver Gate. Some of them date back to Ancient Rome while others to the times of the Venetian rule or the rule of other states. Locals love to say, “various eras are connected by clothes-lines stretched between buildings in Split streets.” The city will meet travelers coming by sea with its red lighthouse at the entrance to Marina Split. Excellent infrastructure provides more than three hundred well-equipped piers for tourists and a convenient location for reaching all the city sights.
