Are you dreaming of a holiday away from the urban smog and traffic congestion, surrounded by pristine natural beauty? If yes, the Dalmatian Hinterland is your perfect choice. The Hinterland does not directly border the sea, but it is associated with the coast due to its natural characteristics. Dalmatia, famous for its sea and all that it has to offer, hides its interior away from the seawater, but is rich in untouched nature which you need to feel and experience. Nature took care of people’s survival in this area and has deployed large and fertile fields throughout the Hinterland. In addition to its vastness, you will be delighted by the rock and karst landscapes, rivers, mountains, etc. The Cetina River is a true pearl of Central Dalmatia which flows through the Dalmatian karst soil and creates beautiful landscapes.

The Dalmatian Hinterland represents a long strip separated from the coast by the mountain ranges of Kozjak, Mosor, Omiš,Dinara, Biokovo and Rilić. It consists of the areas around the towns of Knin, Drniš, Sinj, Vrlika, Imotski and Vrgorac. This jewel with its centuries-old history is a true paradise for gourmets. The gastronomic offer is diverse and rich in delicious and unique dishes. Apart from the Arambaša of Sinj, the ever hospitable people of the Hinterland will also be happy to offer a variety of delicacies such as frogs, Cetina trout, doughnuts from Vrlika and Dalmatian smoked ham from Dugopolje. Hinterland locals claim that "A meal without meat is not a meal" and that is why the menus contain hearty foods that don’t really need a side dish.

Along with the most delicious authentic Dalmatian food, good and high quality wine is inevitable. The Dalmatian Hinterland has always been known for its wine production. The sun, high quality land, and grapes which are hand-harvested (this methodology is still being implemented), are the characteristics of these vineyards in which the locals take pride. The scent of the morning and clean air invite one to visit the untouched nature, to feel the freedom and peace and to have a vacation one truly deserves.

Visit the Dalmatian Hinterland, make your vacation more active and familiarize yourself with the pristine nature. With a short car ride you will soon arrive at the inevitable destinations in this area.
