For starters, Dalmatia stretches from the town of Zadar in the north to the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ – Dubrovnik in the south. Dalmatia boasts mountains and islands, and a handful of UNESCO World Heritage sites.
The history of Dalmatia dates back to the 1st century BC thanks to the Illyrian tribe called the Dalmatae. Since then, Dalmatia has seen Roman rule, Byzantine laws, and Slavic tribes. Dalmatia existed as the Republic of Venice and was a province of the Austrian Empire known as the Kingdom of Dalmatia. Oh, and we must not forget the Napoleonic era!
After World War I, Dalmatia was divided by the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes and the Kingdom of Italy – and after World War II, it was part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
