In this magnificent part of the Adriatic Coast you can enjoy nature, culture and music as well as a variety of culinary specialties. You can go on a photo safari in the Neretva River Delta, or visit a bird collection in Metkovic or the archaeological finds of Narona in Vid. In the small village of Klek you will find several restaurants offering traditional dishes. A visit to the beautiful cities of Dubrovnik, Mljet and Korcula in Ston are also worthwhile. Everywhere you go you will find numerous beaches, cafes and seafood restaurants. Dubrovnik is a magnificent old city surrounded by a fortress wall which is visited year round by tourists. The buildings of the Old City as well as the many unique attractions here help make Dubrovnik a beautiful piece of Mediterranean world heritage - a real open-air museum! The island here is the island of Mljet. It has the most forests of any island in the Mediterranean and is reminiscent of the Alps. The highest point is Veli (514 meters). The island is known for its national park and the saltwater lakes of Malo Jezero Malo and Veliko Jezero. There is a small island nearby which has a Benedictine monastery and the Church of St.Mary which date from the 12th century. In the port of Polace there is a Christian church. Even a visit to Ston (with a 5.5 km long wall- the longest wall after the Chinese Wall) is worth it. Other popular attractions include oyster and shellfish farmers and the salt pans. Of course your seaside holiday is not complete until you have tasted Dalmatian specialties such as mussels and oysters at a local restaurant!
