Lakes in Dalmatia



Many inhabitants of Dalmatia are zealous Catholics and they don't mind to brag. So don't be surprised if out of the blue someone is waving a crucifix in your face talking about eternal fires etc.

Get in[edit]

Most travelers come in through highway A1 Zagreb-Split-Ravca (next to Ploce and heading Dubrovnik). The highway is modern, fast and safe.
