7 Must-See Places On Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast

Thanks to HBO’s series Game of Thrones, Dubrovnik may be the most famous city on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast — but it’s not the only one with clear, ink-blue water, centuries-old walls, and cathedrals, and a sunny Mediterranean climate. The towns on both the mainland and the islands of the Dalmatian Coast offer visitors a mix of beaches, history, and adventures fueled by fresh seafood, local wine, and of course, gelato. 

Pick any town on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast and you’ll find the action is on the Riva. This wide promenade hugs the Adriatic waterfront and hosts everything from coffee bars to bakeries. It’s also where you can book a tour, a cruise, a water taxi, or a ferry ride. Ferry service between the islands is fast and reliable, but many smaller towns, such as Bobovisca Na Moru, are only accessible by car or private boat. 

Although the Rivas are level, be aware that sidestreets in waterfront towns often rise so steeply that they’re staircases. Plan to walk almost everywhere; most streets in the old town sections are too narrow for cars. The old paving stones are picturesque, but frequently uneven and slippery when wet. 

Here are seven old and beautiful cities and villages — some big, some small — that you won’t want to miss.
