Exploring the Northern Dalmatian Coast of Croatia
norther dalmatian coast

The Dalmatian coast extends 12 158 km across the South of Croatia in the Mediterranean Sea. As a result, the region has come face to face with numerous wars from other sea-faring nations over the centuries. With many fortified walls facing the seas, each village has a special story to tell. The Northern region is renowned for its culinary offerings and unique wines. 

Rogoznica

Rogoznica was a popular holiday getaway for the wealthy European military officials. Rogoznica has a history that goes beyond a sleepy fishing village with a grand hotel. It is a meteorological and geographical wonder with amazing sites to visit all with their own legends to tell.

Best places to visit:

  • Dragon’s Eye Lake

Now what is a visit to Croatia without touching on some dragon myths? This lake has a depth of 15 metres deep and is considered a unique geohydromorphological phenomenon as it shows no connection to the ocean or a nearby river. The lake has a high volume of hydrogen sulphide which causes it ‘boil’ at times. The legend goes that a defeated dragon gorged out its eyes throwing one to the North while the other one landed by its foot causing the deep lake in the island we see today.

  • Cape Planka

Another geographical wonder that lies off the island off Rogoznika that is home to the biggest waves of the Adriatic. The Cape Planka or Horn is a divider of the North and South Sea and you can witness its wild and serene beauty all at once. The region is mentioned in the legends of Pliny the Elder and Homer's Iliad.
