So what are the things not to be missed in Croatia?
With so much UNESCO heritage, natural beauty, beaches, history and tradition, compiling a definitive list is quite a challenge.
Leading travel guide website Rough Guides has done just that however, recently publishing a list of 17 Things Not to Miss in Croatia, of which five were in Central Dalmatia.
The list was a strong recommendation for Hvar, with Hvar Town, Hvar Island and Stari Grad all appearing on the list, along with Diocletian's Palace and one of the region's favourite activity sports - sea kayaking. See the full Rough Guides list here.
