'This ancient town was founded on a small island between the mainland and the island of Čiovo.

Thanks to its excellent defensive position, Trogir managed to preserve its independence and freedom for centuries. The results are visible today in the impressive Renaissance and Baroque buildings and numerous artworks. One of the most significant hallmarks of the area is the cathedral of St. Ivan, patron saint of the city. It was built in the place of an early Christian basilica on the site where a Greek temple once stood. Its construction started in 1200, the south portal was finished in 1213 and in 1240 the stonemaster Radovan completed the western portal. In the following centuries the cathedral was reconstructed and expanded. The southern side was more pronounced with the construction of the bell tower on the southwestern corner over the entrance hall and the southern portal under which there is a round staircase. On the southern portal along the cross-shaped opening, there is a Latin inscription that tells of the time when the cathedral was constructed.

• Plitvice Lakes

'The area of Plitvice lakes (Plitvička jezera) is considered to be one of the most beautiful natural attractions in Europe. In this forested mountain area there are 16 beautiful lakes of a crystal blue color. Over the centuries, water from these lakes has eroded and carved the surrounding rocks and the channels in a spectacular way. The mineral sedimentation from the flowing water and the growth of rare types of weeds and moss have caused the formation of spectacular waterfalls, channels and cascades. Mineral sedimentation covers the bottom of the lake with white shine and turns trees and stone in the water into fossil-like shapes. This extremely interesting biodynamic process is continuing in an undamaged environmental setting. Because of different environmental characteristics, the lakes are divided into two sections, Upper and Lower. The Upper lakes are located on the soil where the surface erosion creates spectacular scenery along the forest expanse that surrounds the lakes and waterfalls. The Lower lakes are located in the canyon of steep cliffs, formed by the river\’s flow. This is the area where numerous speleological attractions are located; the caves under the waterfalls are especially beautiful.
The area of Plitvice lakes was declared to be the National park in 1949. Because of its unique biological characteristics and beauty in 1979 it was included in the UNESCO World heritage List. The exceptional beauty of the lakes and waterfalls, rich animal and plant life, contrasts of autumn colors and clear mountain air, walks on the forest paths and wooden bridges, comfortable hotels and restaurants attract almost a million visitors each year.

• Dubrovnik

'Only a few cities in the world can be compared to Dubrovnik. Thick stone walls have managed to preserve the city\'s independence for over seven centuries. The wide, paved street Stradun, filled with bars, stores, churches and palaces combine entertainment, commerce and religion in one pulsing beat. Famous sculptures and architectural masterpieces reveal art treasures as public display. The way that the city walls rise and blend with the sky, hills and the sea proves that the human presence can have an enriching effect to the environment. It is difficult to name all the sights in Dubrovnik, let alone to set some apart.
The city grew and persevered through the turbulent centuries of conquests and destruction of the Middle Ages. Its most important treasure was its freedom that was preserved with wise diplomacy, even when the larger part of the Balkans was under the Turkish rule. Dubrovnik paid for its freedom in gold, but it always profited from it. For centuries, Dubrovnik was an independent republic with a mighty merchant fleet that sailed all over the Mediterranean. Such an environment has been a fertile ground for numerous artists and architects whose artwork benefited the city to such and extensive degree.
Strong walls with its towers protected the priceless treasures of cultural heritage such as Onofrio\'s fountain, Orlando\'s column, Stradun, the Duke\'s palace, Palace Sponza, Cathedral, Dominican and Franciscan monastery and numerous other monuments.
