North Dalmatia - View from Sibenik

The area of North Dalmatia stretches from the Kvarner Riviera down to Split, Croatia’s largest coastal city. Sometimes overlooked as a holiday destination in favour of the more famous resorts and islands further along the coast, the North Dalmatian region has much to offer visitors.
