The high northern slopes of Biokovo, the mountain range which divides the Adriatic from Dalmatinska Zagora (Dalmatian hinterland), might be the future location of the first Dalmatian ski resort.

She also praises the sand beaches, particularly the beach Šunj. The South Dalmatian island of Lopud is located between two other …
