Croatia — Dalmatian Coast



Dalmatian Coast

Over a thousand unique and beautiful islands dot Croatia’s incomparable Dalmatian coast. In our search for islands without cars, we explored the tiny island of Zlarin (known for its beautiful coral) and the even smaller island of Krapanj, celebrated for its history of sponge harvesting.

But we began our Croatian island journey in the car-free medieval walled old-town section of Dubrovnik, which was also an island until the canal that separated Dubrovnik from the mainland was filled in during the 11th century and a limestone-paved pedestrian thoroughfare was built in its stead.
