NEW FOR MAKARSKA: MEET THE VELIKI KASTEL INTERPRETATION CENTRE
The Makarska Riviera is best known for its idyllic and seemingly endless pristine beaches, but there is plenty more to enjoy at Central Dalmatia’s most popular beach destination.
One great new addition is the Veliki Kastel Interpretation Center, which has quite a location! It is located in the multi-story fortress of the same name, which is a historical sensation of Podbiokovlje. The fort on the Biokovo cliffs was built during the Cretan War to provide shelter for the population during the conflict with the Ottomans. Today, its interior has been turned into a modern wonder that tells this beautiful region’s story.
The interpretation center is spread across several floors and is the central place for the interpretation and presentation of the cultural and natural heritage of the village of Kotišina. The modernly equipped interactive space is divided into three exhibition themes: archaeological, ethnological, and natural heritage. In the center, you can see the archeological exhibits found at the Kotišina site under the guidance of the Makarska City Museum. Through ethnological objects and stories, you can get to know the way and lifestyle of the local population in a fun and interactive way.
