Cavtat, located in the southern region, is part of the famous Dubrovnik Republic. Dating back to the 6th century BC, legend has it that Cavtat was known as the darling of the Gods, nature and people. Another legend connects the name of Cavtat with the old Croatian verb ‘captiti’, which means to flourish. The modern identity leverages its roots, association with Austrian ‘high culture’ and quaint village customs. As a result, the area is known for its traditional charm and contemporary style, a place where everyone feels at home.
Primosten is an islet, situated in the country’s south region, between the cities of Sibenik and Trogir, on the Adriatic coast. The area dates back well into the 1500’s. Historically, Primosten was protected by walls, towers and drawbridges that connected it to the mainland. Appropriately named from the Croatian verb primostiti, meaning ‘to bridge’. Today, along with its charm and modern amenities, the area is a tourist draw as a result of having some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. The area’s vineyards are currently under consideration to become a UNESCO World Heritage site.
