Split Dalmatia lodgings
Central Dalmatia is this year the site of the largest investments in tourism in Croatia. There is about 150 million Euros being invested into its hotels, most of which will have four-star ratings. Besides the "Lav Meridien" into whose renovation 50 million Euros were invested, as of May of this year the Hvar hotels "Adriatic", "Amfora" and "Slavija" are to be completely renovated at a price of 20 million Euros, while Bol on the island of Bra� will see the May opening of the four-star "Grand Elaphus", Also to be opened are the pavilions of the "Supetrus hotel" in Supetar, operating within the "Iberostar" hotel chain. Brela too will kick the season off with the newly renovated "Berulia" and "Soline" hotels. Also getting started is the renovation of Split's largest hotel, the "Marjan" which will in 2007, upon completion, get a five-star rating.
Parts of the interior of central Dalmatian islands, some of the abandoned old places on the slopes of the mountains and in the Dalmatinska Zagora hinterland have over the past few years been the site of intensive development in agro-tourism. Besides its exceptional outdoors and the indigenous ambient of hundred-year-old stone houses in Gornja Brela, Gornji Tučepi, Podstrana, Slime, Gata, Tugare, Vrlika, Brnaze, Vis, Pražnice... guests are here offered the opportunity to savour just-picked and garden fresh fruits and vegetables and the local specialities of the region.
The Split region also offers lodgings in three lighthouses: Sveti Petar in Makarska, on Sušac and on Palagruža, the island furthest from the Croatian mainland. The lighthouse on Palagruža was built 130 years ago on a 90 metre high rock and features two four-bed apartments. Church sources confirm that Pope Alexander III stayed on Palagruža in 1177 during a voyage with his ten-galley fleet. Enchanted by the beauty of the island and the surrounding waters, he desired to stop there and take his supper, so that the area has since then been referred to as the Pope's field.
