a trip we've now had several times that's been a big hit so we've
been asked to repeat it. You will love the ship and the itinerary.
We will be cruising the Dalmation Islands with a new island every
day. One thing I really love about the style of this cruise is
that the islands are not far away, all the cruising is done in
the morning finished typically by early afternoon. Then the ship
stays docked and we are free to explore the different islands.
Dinner is not included, which I also like, since half the fun
of exploring these islands is finding an interesting restaurant
and integrating with the locals. You can make your way back to
the ship at any time.

beauty of lakes which constitute a National Park.
Plitvice Lakes are Croatia’s first contribution to the UNESCO’s List of
World Natural Heritage enlisted in 1979 and one of the Europe's
most beautiful nature parks situated in the mountainous region
of Lika. A total of 16 lakes lying at different altitudes are
separated by travertine barriers and linked by foamy waterfalls
and cascades. As the geological processes continue, the wonderfully
blue lakes and waterfalls are continuously changing. Plus, we
will get this with a fraction of the typical visitors!
July 23rd- BIOGRAD
Today we will enjoy a relaxing morning in Biograd.
It was first mentioned as a Croatia town in the 10th century.
Once the town of coronation of Croatian kings, today is a strong
and modern tourist center and the seat of the eponymous Riviera.
This area, like only a few parts of the Mediterranean, offers
excellent marine tourism and sailing possibilities because of
its location on the best-indented part of the Croatian Adriatic.The
core of this ancient town is located on a small peninsula. Visit
the church of St. Roko (votive church from the 16th century, erected
in the honor of St. Roko, patron saint of plague victims), St.
Stosia church (built on the remains of the 18th century cathedral),
Franciscan convent of St. Dujam (founded in the 14th century,
contains valuable baroque saintly images, as well as a rich library),
St. Ante church (dates back to the 13th century, built in an early
romantic style), remains of the Benedictine convent of St. I
van (1069), remains of the Benedictine convent of
St. Toma (1102), parish church of St. Antonija (1850), remains
of an ancient aqueduct and countless
other sites. Numerous beaches stretch along the
entire city, offering an ideal escape if you are looking to get
away from the crowd. It is famous for beautiful beaches with crystal
clear water. If you are a gastronomy enthusiast and want to savor
the specialties and delicacies of this region.
In the afternoon we will arrange a tour of the nearby town of Zadar including the Roman Forum from the
1st century, St. Donatus Church from the 9th
century, magnificent monument of Romanesque architecture, trademark
of the city, and Cathedral of St. Anastasia. Despite its turbulent

that flourished behind the protective walls of the city.
