Dalmatia is traditionally divided into three subregions, along the coast:
Northern Dalmatia has lots of small islands and deep, connected inland. This subregion corresponds to Zadar county and Sibenik-Knin county of Croatia.
Central Dalmatia has several bigger islands (like Brač and Hvar]), with mountains close to coast (like Biokovo) and somewhat separated inland. It is administrated as Split-Dalmatia county of Croatia.
Southern Dalmatia is a narrow strip of land around Dubrovnik, with weak connection to inland (Herzegovina, in another country Bosnia and Herzegovina). It roughly corresponds to the Dubrovnik-Neretva county of Croatia.
