The official site of the Tourist Board Split-Dalmatia County


Located between the two UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Trogir and Diocletian’s Palace and not far from Split Airport lie seven historic coastal villages on the Adriatic waterfront, collectively known as Kastela.

The villages each boast impressive historic fortresses, vineyards which produce the original Zinfandel, and what many claim is the oldest olive tree in all Croatia. And while the story of 17th century sweethearts Miljenko and Dobrila may not be as famous as that of Romeo and Juliet, it is no less romantic.

And that forbidden love all those years ago is the subject of a new promo film for Kastela, which is called ‘Kastela – Seven Reasons to Visit.’

The video is a successful collaboration between Moonstone Production, Dalmatia Film Festival and the Tourist Board of Kastela. It comes from the same production team as the most popular tourism video in the history of Central Dalmatia, which has now racked up almost 10 million views since 2013.
