Berths

Marina Kaštela
Arrival to marina, checking in, meeting with regatta participants and collecting of boat numbers. Marina Kaštela is only 15 minutes’ drive from Split airport. This marina is one of the newest and most ecological marinas at the coast with all the amenities you might need. Meanwhile the town itself and its villages are also known as one of the 7 pearls of the Adriatic.
Šolta island
Today’s Šolta island is a quite island in Dalamatian archipelago with rich history, dating back to Neolithic times. Ancient architecture, like castle of the queen Teuta and Roman heritage of countryside villas with traditional agricultural estate, should be visited during the stay. The island is famous for both – oil making and wild rosemary honey making traditions. Šolta is also home to a wine variety Dobričić – a dark red wine with a purple shine.
Trogir
Trogir absolutely cannot be missed: the old town has retained mainly intact and beautiful buildings from its age of glory between the XIIIth and XVth centuries. In 1997 its profuse collection of Romanesque and Renaissance buildings earned it World Heritage status. Wandering the streets of the old town you will see admirable Cathedral of St. Lovrio, Kamerlengo Fortress and Town Hall.
Brač island
Brač is the 3rd largest island along the Adriatic coast. The island’s tallest peak, Vidova gora, or Mount St. Vid, which stands at 780 mt, making it the highest island point in the Adriatic. Some more interesting facts about the island:
Brač is famous for two things: its radiant white stone, used to build Diocletian’s Palace in Split and the White House in Washington, DC (oh, yes!), and Zlatni Rat, the long pebbly beach at Bol that extends lasciviously into the Adriatic and adorns 90% of Croatia’s tourism posters.
Hvar island
The island of Hvar is unusual in the area for having a large fertile coastal plain, and fresh water springs. Its hillsides are covered in pine forests, with vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and lavender fields in the agricultural areas. The ancient Greeks founded the colony of Pharos in 384 BC on the site of today’s Stari Grad, making it one of the oldest towns in Europe. They were also responsible for setting out the agricultural field divisions of the Stari Grad Plain, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In medieval times, Hvar (city) rose to importance within the Venetian Empire as a major naval base. Prosperity brought culture and the arts, with one of the first public theatres in Europe, nobles’ palaces and many fine communal buildings.
Split
Because of its ideal climate, with 2,800 hours of sunlight each year, local people have a few nicknames for Split: "The most beautiful city in the world" and "Mediterranean flower". With lots of things to do in the downtown, take your time to climb the campanile bell tower next to the palace mausoleum. The stairs cling to the inside of the tower, and in places the steps cross the large open window spaces. The ascent is certainly not for those with vertigo, but the views from the top are marvelous. The historic core of Split with Diocletian palace is among the first urban complexes to enter the list of the UNESCO world heritage in year 1979. Most probably this one of a kind Imperial Palace was built from 298-305 AD and is one of the most significant original structures of the period mostly because so much of it has been preserved.
