Camping Split Dalmatia
Central Dalmatia is located at the heart of Dalmatia. History, culture and beauty are everywhere here.
You can explore lots of culture here: the Palace of the Roman Diocletian in Split, Trogir old town, the Starigrad Plain on the island of Hvar, lacework, Ojkanje singing, Sinjska alka and the Za križem procession.
The town of Split developed from the Palace of the Roman Diocletian in Split who decided to enjoy his retirement here. This exceptionally well preserved palace dating from the Late Antiquity has been adopted by its inhabitants in an unusual fashion. Veli Varoš is one of the highlights of Split. The very best restaurants in Split can be found here along the meandering streets with their small houses and tiny gardens and guests can enjoy various traditional Dalmatian dishes. Visit the Sinjska alka – a riding tournament which has taken place for several centuries in honour of the 700 knights of Sinj who defended the town from 60,000 Ottomans.
Omiš is another must. It is the capital of Klapa – traditional Dalmatian singing groups. The town was one of the most famous towns in the entire Adriatic region in the 12th and 13th centuries although the reason is somewhat surprising – the inhabitants’ main source of income was piracy. The rich cargo ships of Venice and Dubrovnik in addition to the Pope’s ships were a source of treats for the former residents of Omiš. Pirate suppers are organised these days.
The bathing beach of Punta rata in Brela was named as one of the most beautiful in the world in 2004 by the American Forbes magazine. This famous small rock island which contains a few trees and is located right by the beach is the symbol of Brela.
The Zlatni rat beach – the golden horn of the island of Brač – is an unrivalled natural phenomenon because the tip of the beach sometimes points in one direction and sometimes in the other. Fortifications and walls can be explored in the towns of Imotski, Sinj and Vrgorac.
