Adding to the attractiveness of Central Dalmatia as a destination are its glorious Antiquity monuments. They are found everywhere and go deeper than one would think at first. Embark on a five-day archaeological adventure and step into the days of long ago, exploring the indelible trace left by the brave Illyrians and powerful Romans. Get the true spirit of Dalmatia in its Roman edifices, with objects and traditions from Antiquity that still live today.
