To those particularly valuable areas of natural heritage, we should add the areas under special protection – nature parks. There are three nature parks in Dalmatia: the southern Velebit, Telascica and Biokovo. Decide on your own which you would prefer: ravishing beauties created by nature or those created by people in the course of history. Dalmatia abounds in cultural and historical monuments
|of the Mediterranean culture, ancient monuments, monuments from the early
Middle Ages, Romanesque sacral heritage
and a series of well-preserved urban units
characteristic for the Mediterranean.
Four of six sites under protection of UNESCO are located in Dalmatia: the Diocletian’s palace in Split, the towns of Dubrovnik and Trogir and St. Jacob’s
cathedral in Sibenik.
