Sightseeing
Our lady of Prizidnice is the ‘‘keeper of our sea and sailors’’. In the 16th century, priests from Poljica chose a desolate point on the steep cliffs on the island of Čiovo and built a shrine dedicated to the Immaculate Conception. Above the entrance carved in the wall are two stone tablets bearing witness to its history. Juraj Stoidražić, a hermit priest, who arrived in 1546 and built this temple, making the place a safe haven for hermit priests who dedicated their lives to prayer and penance. The church today is uninhabited and is located on the south-east end of the island on a cliff above the sea. Only four times a year a pilgrimage is held in the church where locals come to hear the mass. From here you can see the islands Brač and Šolta. It provides the best location for gazing at the sun while it is rising or setting.

UNESCO protected medieval city centre Trogir presents a good example of well-preserved Romanesque-Gothic islet town. It has long lasting urbanistic consistency which goes all way to its Hellenic heritage with its octagonal city shape. During different periods of rule it was redesigned according to the architectural trends of the time, ranging from Romanesque and Gothic to Renaissance and Baroque. UNESCO recognised its value in 1997 and listed Trogir as a World Heritage Site. Trogir is sometimes called a city-museum because of its rich cultural heritage and intact authentic architecture.

Marvel at the Sea Organ Installed in 2005, the bizarre but immensely popular Sea Organ created by Zadar-educated Nikola Bašić has given a new dimension to the city’s waterfront. As you approach the steps at the tip of the peninsula that contains the town centre, strange noises arise from holes drilled into the marble, linked to 35 organ pipes beneath the waves. These create unworldly sounds randomly dictated by the ebb and flow of the water, an unusually comforting feeling as you lie on the flat stones and sunbathe.

Covering 6 sq km, it would hardly be noticed at all except for its remarkable Blue Grotto (Modra Spilja) or Blue Cave that strongly suggests the famous Grotto of Capri.Of about ten caves scattered around Bisevo's coast, the Blue Cave is the most outstanding. Although long known to fishermen, the cave has only been accessible to the non-diving public since 1884 when an entrance large enough for a boat was formed by blasting a hole in the rock.

Beach
If you want to explore some of Croatia’s more untouched beaches, this is your beach – Kava Beach is about 1km past the pretty fishing village of Slatine Bay, on the eastern end of Ciovo Island. It’s quite off the beaten track and not at all built up, and the road is a bit rough but it’s a gorgeous spot once you get there. Do make sure to take drinks and food with you as this isn’t a commercialized beach and there is only one cafe serving drinks and fast food. You can stop in Slatine Bay for coffee or lunch if you’d rather and if you are staying in Slatine, it’s worth knowing that you can also take the water taxi ferry to Trogir or into Split which does rather open up your options for lunch or dinner somewhat!

Brac is home to the most famous Croatian beach, Zlatni Rat Beach, a beautiful, shapeshifting phenomenon that attracts visitors from far and wide and was named as one of the top ten best beaches in the world by Lonely Planet in 2009.

With bohemian cocktail bars under the pine trees and VIP seats for after beach parties, you can spend all day and evening on this intriguing and beguiling beach.

Sightseeing
The story of Split is already 17 centuries old, dating to the time the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his Palace right on the peninsula near the great Roman city Salona, where he wanted to spend the last years of his life. During these 1700 years the Palace slowly turned into a city, which to this day lures with its rich tradition, glorious history and beauty of its natural and cultural heritage. Diocletian Palace and the entire historical core of Split have been on the World Heritage UNESCO list ever since 1979, and not only for the extraordinary preservation of the Palace, but also because the Palace and its city (or the city and its Palace, if you like) continue to live a full life.

Adventure
Cetina River is a great way to enjoy a breath-taking scenery. Due to its waterfalls, caves and jungle-like vegetation make it a must-do activity while in Croatia. The warm Mediterranean climate meets the canyon and creates a setting just like in a fairy tale. Even though the rapids of this river are relatively easy, it will create a memorable experience for all. The rafting Cetina River trip ends in Radmanove Mlinice. Nowadays, an open-air restaurant situated in a beautiful old watermill where you can relax and enjoy a traditional Croatian meal.
