Lost Roman Cities of Dalmatia – Asseria

My long lasting love for history and archaeology resulted with several tours and original programs. One of those is Lost Roman Cities – tour dedicated to one of the most deserted areas of Croatia and to one of the most beautiful parts of Dalmatia. Once inhabited by thousands of Illyrians and later Romans, the area…

Vis Island – Lambik Bar, Kut

One of the finest bars in Vis is most likely popular Lambik in Kut area of Vis Town. Located in the former palace/noblemen house, it keeps the beauty of traditional architecture and style famous for it’s gorgeous vine-covered atrium.

Salona – Ancient Roman ruins near Split

One of the best examples of how we in Croatia poorly treat our rich heritage is the ancient city of Salona. Once, one of the most important Roman cities with over 60 000 inhabitants, it is now merely a group of interesting ruins spread on a large piece of land surrounded by the modern developments…
