Dalmatian coast and islands mapThe long, rugged Dalmatian coast, backed by high mountains with hundreds of offshore islands, is becoming Europe's most popular vacation spot.  In summer, Dalmatia is flooded with Italian tourists attracted by the marvellous Dalmatian cuisine.  Each island in Dalmatia has its own character from trendy hotspot to secluded getaway. The coast is dotted with everything from major cities such as Split and Zadar to picture-perfect beaches  such as lovely Brela Beach.  And there's no lack of historical interest! The history of Dalmatia stretches back to the Paleolithic era.
