  • Just half an hour walking along the Lungo Mare Promenade you will reach Volosko. A dreamy hidden port town and one of Croatia’s food Meccas! Go to Trattoria Skalinada for the cosy garden feeling, go to Osteria Veranda for the perfect Adriatic Restaurant terrace or go to Restaurant Plavi Podrum for Croatia’s Top 10 fish Restaurant

  • Have lunch at Konoba Skoblar for an authentic local “Marenda” which means small lunch during working days

Day 5 – Your free day in Split (with lots of experience options)

Split is a former retirement home of one of the greatest Roman Emperors – Diocletian. The entire old town was home to him, his family and his personal army. Today, it is the desired destination for travellers all over the world due to its uniqueness, its good vibe, and the fact that the whole palace is a great place to eat, drink, explore, and have fun in the evening.

  • When in Split, do not miss the Meštrović Gallery near the old town. Meštrović was a powerful stonemason. He was an artist of world class. In the gallery he lived, worked, received V.I.P.’s like royals, politicians, and other artists from that time.
  • If you are on the adventurous side of life, we highly recommend the speedboat trip around the nearby islands. Island Vis, the Blue Cave, and other small islands are a real jewel, especially during the summer.
  • The most authentic Jewelry of the region is filigree. Check out the old town of Split for the small family-run filigree workshops. Great stuff for great prices.
  • We had some great cocktails HERE
  • Did you like the Plitvice Lakes? Then, you shouldn’t miss the smaller but more fairytale-like version near Šibenik called National Park Krka Waterfalls. It’s easy to find some tours in the old town.
