Dalmatia [1] is the southern coastal region of Croatia on the Adriatic Sea.

Lakes in Dalmatia


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.
