Makarska has been created and each corner has its own story to tell. Let’s dive together into its history which needs no embellishment.

In the 18th century, Makarska got its shine under the wings of the Venetian lion. During that period, the symbols of the city were created. The cathedral has always been a mirror of Makarska growth. It stands proudly in the main square presenting all the splendour of
