A butterfly and a medieval church in Škrip on the island of Brač off Croatia's Dalmatian Coast. According to tradition, the charming village is the birthplace of Helena, mother of the Roman emperor Constantine (the Great). We visit it on our brand-new cruise in Southern Dalmatia.  http://www.petersommer.com/croatia/tours/

Ancient Greek fortification tower - Tor - near Jelsa on the island of Hvar in Croatia, today. A lovely though steep walk to reach it affording stupendous views.

The beautiful village of Starigrad on the island of Hvar in Croatia. It literally means 'old town' and was founded by ancient Greek colonists. It has a wonderful collection of museums and fascinating buildings. A great place to explore on holiday.

On concluding our short but highly interesting trip to Croatia, another picture from Split. It shows the stunning "Silver Gate", the eastern entrance to the mighty 3rd/4th century (AD) complex known as the Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, with the much later cathedral tower crowning what used to be Diocletian's mausoleum visible behind. We are very much looking forward to offering tours in Croatia in the near future.

Looking out from the fortress over Hvar town on the island of Hvar in Croatia a few days ago. A perfect spot for a cultural holiday.

This morning: a view of the town of Pučišća on the island of Brač in Croatia. Pučišća is famous for the numerous quarries in the vicinity and for its school of stonemasons. Brač produces a beautiful white marble and very finely grained limestone. They were used for the Palace of Diocletian at nearby Split, but also for the Reichstag in Berlin and - rumour has it - for the White House in Washington, DC.

Last evening, view of the town of Korčula on the island of the same name, off the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia. The UNESCO listed town is of remarkable charm. Its architecture dates mostly from the 13th to 17th centuries, when Korčula maintained close connections with Venice.
