A typical traveler will recommend it for its natural beauty, Mediterranean climate and rich cultural heritage. Many visitors will compare it with Italy. Indeed, the ancient Dalmatian architecture and art are the legacy of the Italian rule from centuries ago. The unique blend of the ancient Roman culture and the local Slavic influences can be observed in many towns and cities across the region, such as Dubrovnik, Korčula, Spilt, Trogir, Zadar, etc.
The typical features of these places include glossy promenades, narrow lanes winding through the historic centre, rows of white stone houses with green shutters and possibly (the remains of) fortified walls.
A common scene on any postcard from Dalmatia will display a stunning coastline with myriad verdant islands, limpid bays, hidden coves and pristine beaches, as well as city skylines marked with church steeples and ship masts glistening in the summer sun.
