Dalmatian hinterland – what to do, what to see, where to be

Although only recently foreign tourists have started to pay attention to it, “Dalmatinska Zagora” has so much to offer. You like camping, cycling, climbing or just entertainment? – The Dalmatian hinterland has it all in abundance.

When you get tired of the sea – the mountains are just a few kilometres away. And so is a gastronomical and cultural adventure that will create memories for a lifetime.

Gastronomy at its finest

Dalmatian hinterland is very proud of special Dalmatian ham – pršut. Wind and smoke provide the perfect environment assuring an extraordinary taste and attractive red colour. Dalmatian pršut has received  a whole array of prizes so don’t forget to try it. We prefer the one from Dugopolje. It just melts in your mouth, especially with homemade wine and bread.

Natural wonders – colourful lakes

One of the most photogenic places of Dalmatian inland is definitely the natural phenomena of the Blue and Red Lake near Imotski. Both of them were probably formed by the collapse of an underground cave. As you might guess they got their name from the colour of the water.

Knightly tournament – Sinjska Alka

This is a unique and very famous competition held during the month of August in the small town of Sinj. Thanks to its attractive cultural and gourmet offer Sinj is worth a visit all year round. So, why not give it a chance! We would warmly recommend to you the interactive Alka Museum. Here you will go through the whole story of Alka and get familiar with the almost three hundred years old tradition of the Sinj region. And pop in to the Sanctuary of our Miraculous Lady. It will help you understand the history of the local population.
