Four of eight Croatian National parks are located in Dalmatia: Paklenica, Krka, Mljet and Kornati.

Decide on your own which you would prefer: ravishing beauties created by nature or those created by people in the course of history. Dalmatia abounds in cultural and historical monuments of the Mediterranean culture, ancient monuments, monuments from the early Middle Ages, Romanesque sacral heritage and a series of well-preserved urban units characteristic for the Mediterranean.
