This day we will admire natural beauties and some of the most important historical and cultural sites in Dalmatia mainland. First, a coach trip brings you to the small town of Skradin, the gateway to River Krka National Park, which is best known for its scenic waterfalls. The park is worth visiting. After returning to the seaside, visit the small town of Trogir, which has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites for its Venetian architecture. The next visit is Šibenik, a historic city located in central Dalmatia where the river Krka flows into the Adriatic Sea. An optional walking tour* will introduce you to Šibenik’s significant claim to Renaissance – when the town’s Cathedral of St. James was constructed, and the present day, with the city known as one of Croatia’s upcoming gems. Finally, experience its stone alleys and excellent cuisine in an evening on your own—overnight in Šibenik.

DAY 4 • TUESDAY: SIBENIK – VIS (B, L)
Today our Adriatic highlights cruise will head to the island of Vis, famous for its intact nature, sandy beaches, and beautiful bays. It was a strategic naval Yugoslav base and closed to the public for years. Due to this ‘isolation’, Vis has a unique charm – they say it gives you a feeling of “the Mediterranean as it once was”… Join an optional guided tour* to get insight into the exciting history of Vis. Overnight in Vis.
