In this magnificent part of the Adriatic Coast you can enjoy nature, culture and music along with a variety of culinary specialties. You can participate in a photo safari to the Neretva River Delta, visit a bird sanctuary in Metkovic or view the archaeological finds of Narona in Vid. In the small village of Klek there are 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 beaches, cafes and seafood restaurants. Dubrovnik is a magnificent old city surrounded by a fortress wall which is visited year round by tourists. The historic buildings of the Old City along with the numerous unique attractions of Dubrovnik make it a beautiful piece of world heritage in the Mediterranean - a true open-air museum! The island you see here is that 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 Veliko Jezero and Malo Jezero (large and small lake). There is a small island nearby with 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 worthwhile. Other popular attractions include oyster and shellfish farmers and the salt pans. Of course a holiday here would not be complete without tasting Dalmatian specialties like mussels and oysters in a local restaurant.
