Croatia is one of the most popular tourist resorts in Europe. Besides the mild climate, this country has many places of interest worth visiting.
Main marina in Split is ACI Split. Most trips start right at its doorstep. You can see buildings of all the ages in Split, starting with ancient Roman palaces and finishing with modern buildings. The most famous structure is emperor Diokletian’s palace, where “Game of Thrones” was filmed. If you want to watch the whole city, climb the mountain in Maryan park. From here, you can see any tiny town feature not visible from below.
ACI Marina Dubrovnik is situated in 4 miles from the town, you can go there by regular buses going to the town centre. Some dwelling houses here are more than 500 years old. Besides the historical part, the places you should visit include fortress walls and viewpoint at the Srj mountain where you can observe the town panorama.
Small town Zadar is one of the largest sailing centres in Croatia. Besides traditional historical buildings, it has a unique singing boulevard where seawaves create a unique melody of nature. Else, Zadar is a native town for legendary cherry liqueur “Maraskin”.
Pula lies on the deep west of Croatia, near Italy. Because of its location, architecture here is more elegant and sophisticated. It even reminds Venice more than other Croatian cities. Watch the town panorama from the local Kastel fortress including the giant amphitheatre from Ancient Roman times.
Brac is the largest island in Dalmatia. One of the most comfortable bays for mooring is near Milna town. From the island, you can observe the huge piece of Croatian seashore with Split and Trogir cities. You might also enjoy spending some time at Zlatni Rat beach. It’s the large foreland originated from the white sand slowly fading into blue depths.
The main ports of the Vis island are Vis and Komiza. Being the military object, the island was closed for visiting for a long time. But now, you may walk its traditional narrow streets as much time as you wish. And don’t forget to sail to Modra Spila grotto on your boat.
The only marina at Korcula is usually packed with yachts. Yachtsmen often recommend to anchor in the northern bay or use neighbouring Lastovo and Lumbarda islands for mooring. As for Korcula, Marko Polo was born here, and his house still stands on the island. The south of Korcula has enough bays and coves to rest from the city noise.
Lastovo is the most remote Croatian archipelago. It consists of 46 islands, part of them have nice anchorages to stay for a night. For example, Pasadur town, Jurieva Luka and Skrivena Luka bays.
You’ll find the most attractive anchorage on the Mljet island near Polace town. The main island sightseeing (besides old buildings) is a lake which has an island — an island on an island!
Trogir is a small museum town which seems to be transported to our age from the medieval epoche. Marina is as close to the old town as possible. Just walk a couple of minutes — and you appear to be in the streets with more than 2 thousands years history.
Usually, yachtsmen moor in Palmizana marina on a small island near Hvar (in case Hvar doesn’t have enough place for your boat). There are fields on the island cultivated with an ancient method brought from the Ancient Greece culture. They are even protected by the UNESCO organization.
You can moor in the Sipan harbour but in good weather conditions only. The most famous sights on the island are Skocybuha castle and Pakleni tower.
The small Solta island offers few moorings for your boat. These are Maslenica, Rogac and Stomorska harbors where you can start exploring local lands. Solta has a calm vibe right for a yacht holidays away from bustling cities.
