The Krk National Park is located nearby (there is a unique complex of waterfalls). In Skradin you will feel the true spirit of Croatia. The city center has remained almost unchanged lately; there are all the same Italian-style houses as 200 years ago. It is especially good here during the festival of folk songs and the Nativity of the Virgin Mary.
- Primosten. Another pearl of Dalmatia is the city of Primosten. It is a favorite destination for tourists who charter a yacht in Croatia. A small Mediterranean town with an ancient history dating back to antiquity, located on a small peninsula. Its architecture is typical of narrow streets and stone houses. If you want to visit Primosten, it is best to stop at Kremik Marina among the picturesque vineyards. By the way, Babic wine is produced here, we recommend that you try it. Kremik Bay is one of the most beautiful natural anchorage places in the Adriatic.
- Trogir. This is a rather interesting town in Central Dalmatia, not far from the center of the region, the city of Split. Trogir was inhabited as early as the 3rd century BC by the ancient Illyrians. It is very well preserved, the city was built in the Roman-Gothic style. Of particular interest among tourists is the city center, located on a small island connected by two bridges to the rest of the city. You can leave the yacht in the rather large marina Trogir, it has 170 berths and is located very close to the city center. There are so many sights here that the whole center was included in the UNESCO cultural heritage fund as a single historical ensemble. In addition, there is a good infrastructure for tourists, there are quite a few cafes and restaurants where you can taste the local Dalmatian cuisine.

It is the center of Roman culture in the region, the city is distinguished by its original architecture even among other places in Dalmatia.From here there are routes to the largest nearby islands: Lastovo, Hvar, Vis, etc. We recommend that you stop at the local ACI marina, which is located very close to the center.
- Old City. It is an ancient Greek city on the island of Hvar. The town is located in the north of the island and is surrounded by numerous vineyards, Mediterranean forests and olive groves. So if you decide to stay here, you can enjoy the unique nature of the Adriatic. Also in the city is the Hektorovich Castle and an excellent museum. You will never find a peaceful and friendly atmosphere in small settlements like Stari Grad in large cities, even such as Split. So be sure to visit this place, you won't regret it.
- Vis. Here you will find beautiful sandy beaches where you can relax and sunbathe. The sea water here is amazing. You can moor near the embankment or on special buoys. We recommend that you visit local restaurants and cafes. Previously, Vis played an important role in the defense of the region; many fortifications from different eras have been preserved here. You can also visit the old fishing village of Komiza, which is located near the city.
