Tour 1. – Solin, Trogir &Klis (14:30-19:00h)

Price: 40,00 € per person


Step back in time with visits to Solin - Croatia’s most important excavation site from Roman times. Solin was developed on the ancient Roman settlement of Salona, which at the height of its greatest prosperity throughout the 3rd and 4th centuries had 40,000 inhabitants. The remains of temples, an amphitheatre, early Christian churches, burial grounds and Roman baths show centuries of prosperity and upheavals, serenity and war.


The historical centre of Trogir is included on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. The Greeks, Romans and Venetians have all influenced Trogir. Its heart is a small islet between the gentle hills on the mainland and the coast of the island of Ciovo and here you will find its palaces, churches, towers and a fortress. Trogir arose from ancient Tragurion that was founded by Greek colonists from the island of Vis during the 3rd century BC. It is full of buildings and monuments testifying to its rich history such as the cathedral, with its famous portal by the well-known local master Radovan. Other attractions include the 15th-century city loggia; the Cipiko Palace, the town hall and the Benedictine monastery from the year 1064, where a Greek relief is kept representing Kairos, according to the ancient Greeks, the god of the ‘fleeting moment’.


The medieval Klis Fortress is situated above a village bearing the same name. From its origin as a small stronghold built by the ancient Illyrian tribe Dalmatae it became a royal castle that was the seat of many Croatian kings. It was then a defensive fortification against the Ottoman invasion of Europe during the early 16th century.
Today, Klis Fortress contains a museum with an array of arms, armour and traditional uniforms.

Tour 2. –Krka National Park (14:30-20:00h)

Price: 55,00

Krka National Park lies about 10km inland from Sibenik. Named after the Krka River, the Park covers an area of just over 142 square km and includes two thirds of the river itself. The top attraction of the Park are its magnificent waterfalls, including the famous Skradinski Buk falls which are one of Croatia's most famous sights.
The Skradinski Buk waterfalls are a collection of 17 waterfalls that range in height by over 45 metres. Due to the wealth and variety of geomorphological forms, vegetation, and the various effects caused by the play of light on the whirlpools, Skradinski buk is considered to be one of the most beautiful calcium carbonate waterfalls in Europe.
Eight hundred and sixty species and subspecies of plants have been identified within the territory of the Krka National Park, including several endemic species.
