Itinerary

Day 1 (Saturday): DUBROVNIK – KORČULA (L)

Boarding the Adriatic cruise small ship begins at 11.00. We departure to the Island of Korčula at 1 PM. Due to the different, almost black pine forests that cover Korčula, it is also known as the Black Island. The city of Korčula is like a mini Dubrovnik, enclosed by medieval stone walls and towers. A local guide will take you through the old town, where narrow streets are designed in a thorn shape for good reason, which will be explained during the visit. After a walk, free time to relax and enjoy the simple taverns, restaurants and bars. Night in Korčula.

Day 2 (Sunday): KORČULA – METKOVIĆ (B, L, CD)

Breakfast. The trip continues to the Metković village, on the banks of the Neretva River, with the wide delta of the same name. Boat trip to explore forests, mandarins, flora and fauna, wild birds and the traditional way of life of people who live near the river. There is an enchanting feeling of time spent like nowhere else on the coast. Visit of the Narona Archaeological Museum in the village of Vid, which was opened in 2007, as the first “in situ” museum in Croatia showing the remains of a Roman temple. Narona has seventeen marble sculptures of Roman emperors and their families. The ancient Illyrians, Greeks, Romans sailed there, and according to legend, the pirates of Neretva planned their raids on the galleys of their enemies. Captain’s Dinner on board with live music. Night in Metković

Day 3 (Monday): METKOVIČ – SPLIT (B, L)

On day 3 the cruise continues south to Split, the second largest city in Croatia. In the historic center of the city, which was listed as a universal heritage by UNESCO, you will meet with a local guide for a city tour. Optionally, you will be able to enter the cellars of the Diocletian’s Palace, built in the 4th century by the Roman emperor Diocletian, which had the function of his retirement home. You will also pass the Cathedral of Saint Domnius and the Temple of Jupiter. Night on board in Split.

Day 4 (Tuesday): SPLIT – NP KRKA – ŠIBENIK (B, L, D)

After breakfast the day begins full of rich wine and majestic waterfalls. Trip to Skradin – the first stop is the famous Bibich winery, where you will taste typical wine and light tapas. I walk through Krka National Park and you will visit Skradinski Buk, which is the most popular part of the park area. An unforgettable experience is swimming under the waterfalls, so we recommend that you bring your beach gear and enjoy the crystal clear fresh water. In the afternoon, arrival in Šibenik, the naval city and the central part of the Croatian Adriatic coast. Explore the glorious ancient city, cultural monuments and the impressive UNESCO listed Cathedral of St. James, adorned with a Frisian of 72 heads chiseled in stone. While strolling through the city take advantage of the small shops with nice souvenirs. Dinner on board and night in Šibenik.

Day 5 (Wednesday): ŠIBENIK – ZADAR (B, L)

After breakfast we head to Zadar, the oldest university city in Croatia, with an incredible heritage where rich history awaits you: the 1st century Roman Forum, the 9th century St. Donatus Church – the most famous medieval basilica and the symbol of the city, the mighty city walls, more than 30 churches, museums, ancient palaces and villas of noble families in the old town. In recent years Zadar has added a modern touch with the famous Sea Organ, a simple set of holes on several steps, visible with the naked eye and the Salute to the Sun, a gigantic circle of 22 m in diameter made of glass plate bases that represents the Solar System. Night in Zadar.
