A Tale in the Mountains of Split-Dalmatia County

Dalmatia stands as one of our oldest regions, enticing visitors with a plethora of attractions. While its stunning coastline captivates, nature provides breathtaking scenes, be it in national parks or nature parks. You can never go wrong choosing to explore. Dalmatia boasts a truly unique geographic position and appearance, owing much to its magnificent mountain ranges, whether we admired them or felt a sense of awe. In Croatia, there are no mountains exceeding 2,000 meters.

Mountains in Dalmatia include the “island” mountains of inland Croatia and the Dinaric mountain range stretching through the mountainous and coastal regions of Croatia from northwest to southeast. In Dalmatia, these include Biokovo, Mosor, and Svilaja. Biokovo, a mountain massif in the Split-Dalmatia County, divides the Adriatic from Dalmatian hinterland.

Embracing a healthy lifestyle through breathing fresh air, hiking, and mountain climbing will impact your spirit and mind. It refreshes all your senses, leaving you eager to return.
