Thing or two about Dubrovnik and Split

Dubrovnik is known as ”the Pearl of Adriatic”. Situated at the southern end of the Croatian coast. Let’s start with a brief historical overview of this unique Croatian jewel. The town established 1.300 years ago by Greek refugees. Was under the control of the Byzantine Empire, Venice until the 14th century. Dubrovnik, known as a “Ragusa”, became an independent republic in 1358 and grew to become Venice’s rival in the Mediterranean. Today Dubrovnik is the most popular tourist destination in Croatia and our first place to visit during this trip. From Dubrovnik, we are heading North to Split by visiting the Croatian islands Korčula and Hvar.  The story of amazing Split dates back to ancient Roman times. A Split most famous feature is its Diocletian’s Palace considered to be most spectacular. Built towards the end of the 3rd century AD, is the most significant Roman site in CroatiaWith locals who continue to live within its walls, it is a living monument of one era and without a doubt a “must-see” when visiting Split
