Best Things To Do in Central Dalmatia

The geographic splendor of Central Dalmatia makes it prime territory for outdoorsmen (and women). There is ample terrain for hiking, biking and running as well as open water for kayaking, swimming, sailing and more. Even the region's most popular site -- Diocletian's Palace -- is open-air. Admiring the ancient architecture in a city square café is a popular pastime, plus, the nightlife has become a major draw. At its best (and most expensive) in the summer, Hvar Town is home to some of the best bars on the coast, and don't miss the seasonal, seaside hotspot Carpe Diem.
