Experience the cultural heritage of the Adriatic
Two millenia of history
From Illyrians, ancient Greeks and Romans, middle ages and the Republic of Venice to the modern era and Croatia - the Adriatic sea settlements are reminiscences of glorious past. With its vast cultural heritage, with a part of it under UNESCO protection, the central Dalmatia region is the ideal destination for our history sailing tour. History buffs, it's time to embark as we set sails!
Day 1 - Split and Diocletian's Palace.
The Diocletian Palace is one of the best-preserved monuments of ancient Roman architecture. Built at the turn of 4th century AD by the Roman emperor Diocletian, the palace once served as his retirement residence. It was listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Site in 1979.
Day 2 - Stari Grad (ancient Pharos)
In the morning we set sails towards ancient Pharos. Alongside Vis, one of the oldest towns in Croatia. Its Croatian name Stari Grad literally means "Old Town". Some of the cultural sights include: renaissance Hektovoric Tvrdalj castle, city museum, the church of St. Stephen, and UNESCO protected Stari Grad Plain.
Day 3 - Hidden bay (Hvar)
The hidden bay is a perfect location to spend a relaxed day swimming and snorkeling. There is only one family living in the bay that functions as a micro-community: from fishing to running a restaurant. We will dine delicious local food there.
Day 4 - Korcula (Korkyra)
Korcula was founded in middle-ages, around the 10th century. It resembles Dubrovnik with its architecture and typical medieval structures that you can explore on foot once we dock at the port. For most of its history, it was under the Venetian rule. It is the rumored hometown of the famous explorer Marco Polo, and due to that fact, you will see a lot of monuments, restaurants and a museum dedicated to him.
Day 5 - Island Scedro (monument of nature)
Scedro is a small island on the south side of Hvar, a protected monument of nature. Some of the famous historic maritime battles took place there, such as the battle between Pompey and Caesar at 49 BC. To this day you can find numerous artifacts from the battles and shipwrecks in the depths around the Scedro island. The island itself is both without electricity and freshwater, which leaves a feeling of going back in time - when everything was more simple.
Day 6 - Vis island (ancient Issa)
Together with Stari Grad (Pharos), Vis (Issa) is one of the oldest towns in Croatia. Besides antic ruins and rich sacral heritage, this town and the whole island are known for many military forts from various eras of the past. Due to its strategic location, Vis was one of the main military forts during The Second World War. There is an option for a "military tour" once we arrive on Vis island. Furthermore, if you have a diving certification, you'll enjoy various diving spots around the island where you can find sunk warships and air fighters.
Day 7 - Sailing back to Split
It's time to slowly sail back to the port and enjoy beautiful waves as the sun slowly paints the sky orange in the scenery that you can only see in the movies. We should arrive in Split in by evening.
