Villa Klaudija, placed as it is between the towns of Sibenik and Knin, is well located to visit some of the most iconic of Dalmatia’s cultural hubs, as well as its renowned coast and National parks. Drnis itself is a quirky town with a rich tradition in music and dance, as well as a reputation for its excellent prosciutto and wines... It is here that the renowned sculptor, Ivan Mistrovic, is from, and substantial numbers of his sculptures can be seen in and around Drnis, specifically in the Museum which also exhibits his marvellous paintings. Here too, as well as along the dramatic Krka and Cikola canyons can be found the remains of several forts and fortifications that will fascinate. (It is worth noting that the Cikola river canyon also contains caves where the remains of a human presence dating back to 10,000BC can be seen.) The fortress town of Knin, near the source of the river Krka and set amidst stark, arid scenery, is only 22km away. This 2nd-millennium city was once the capital and seat of the Croatian kings and is home to one of the most extensive fortifications in Croatia - in fact, reputed to be the second largest in Europe. The museum is well worth a visit. Similarly, Skradin, (30km) on the Krka river and at the entrance to the Park, is both notably ancient and gorgeous. Being one of the oldest Croatian towns, it dates back to the Illyrians and has an enchanting stone town centre and lovely marina. Here, go and see the church of Our Lady with the bell tower, the Orthodox Church of St Spiridon and the churches of St Peko and Jeronim. There are ferries between Skradin and the Krka national park, a rather lovely beach where the river meets the sea and many exceptional restaurants serving specialities of the region. Head for the Krka waterfalls where you will see an area of astonishing beauty and even pass by the Fort of St Nicholas. Once upstream you can swim in the river, paddle and walk in the forest. Slightly further afield and spread out on and around the estuary of the Krka river, is Sibenik, (30km) home to 24 churches and 6 monasteries. Here the Cathedral of St James is a glorious 15th Century church reputed to be the world’s most significant place of worship built entirely from stone while similarly impressive and positioned above the Garden of St Lawrence is the 13th century St Michael’s Fortress from whose ramparts fabulous vistas of the Adriatic Sea and its multitude of islands can be seen. Here too is an open-air theatre. Another fortress is indisputably worth a visit is the ‘sea-castle’ of St Nicholas on the island of Ljuljevacat at the entrance to the St Anthony Channel - built by the Venetians to defend the Adriatic Channel. Sibenik has a plentiful supply of both unique and mainstream shops, wine bars and restaurants. Pellegrini Restaurant is considered one of Croatia’s best - serving mainly reinvented Dalmatian classics. Then Vodice, (20km) is a vibrant and friendly coastal town situated on a wide bay. Here you will find numerous gorgeous beaches, excellent restaurants and much of historical interest such as the remains of Roman settlements and the 4th Century BC Liberian Acropolis. While you are in this vibrant region, it would be a shame to miss out on a visit to Trogir (52km) and Split (66km). The former is a pearl of the Dalmatian coast and frequently dubbed ‘Little Venice’. It is, rightly, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Surrounded by lush vegetation, Trogir boasts a pretty marina and some fabulous beaches - the famous Panta, Okrug and Coffee beaches being notable examples. Trogir is a lively town with numerous markets, folklore performances and music concerts where visitors can immerse themselves in the local culture. Don’t miss seeing some of the impressive ancient architecture and historical sites including the city gates and walls, Cipiko Palace, Garagnin museum and palace and the main square where you will see many historical landmarks including the Cathedral of St Lawrence. And Split, (18km) 1700 years old and renowned for being the most vibrant city of Central Dalmatia, hardly needs an introduction. Not only is it a UNESCO World Heritage site for the distinction of its cultural and historical monuments, but it also has much beautiful sand, and pebble beaches - Bacvice and Bene are two of them - and a buzzing and exuberant culture of restaurants, bars and nightlife.
