History written in stone
You have arrived in a region of world cultural heritage with a millennial history written in stone, a region that has the largest archaeological site on the Croatian side of the Adriatic – Roman Salona, as well as top museums and galleries, monuments and cultural events, monasteries and cathedrals, theatres and outdoor shows.
The cultural heritage here has been created in stone, marble and wood on the walls and in the palaces of local towns. From antiquity through medieval history to the present day, culture and heritage in Central Dalmatia will leave its mark on every holiday.
Every step taken between the stone houses and palaces of centuries-old history of each of our cities is a special experience. The historical cores of the stone towns of Split and Trogir, thanks to their layered cultural heritage, have found their place among UNESCO protected World Heritage Sites. Picturesque streets, squares and churches over and over again selflessly evoke the splendour of talent, over the centuries of creation, left by artists and builders, whilst museums and galleries show the most attractive exhibits of this layered history.
