Today, it is renowned for its variety of archaeological, historical and cultural monuments among them the UNESCO listed Diocletian Palace. Chartering from Split allows you to experience the finest views and areas that this fascinating country has to offer. Croatia’s location has long made it a country of strategic importance, and the various civilisations and cultures that have had influence here over the centuries have all left their legacy, and contributed to a rich and diverse culture.
