The sun-bathed Adriatic on the right, the ever-green hills on the left, and in front of you nothing but a winding two-lane road passing through historic towns and villages. And this is exactly why it is voted one of the most beautiful roads in the world. There are many roads that stretch along the coast, but rarely anyone that boasts the azure blue sea in which islands are scattered like pearls. In some places the road goes down to the sea, while in other places cuts high in the hills. In some places it is straight, and in some places, it is twisting like a snake.

Built in the 1950s and 1960s, this road connects all major cities on the Adriatic. Rijeka, Zadar, Sibenik, Split, Makarska, Ploce and Dubrovnik and further to Ulcinj. The route of the Adriatic Highway leads in part to the routes of the existing Roman and medieval roads and those built in the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries.

If your travel plan includes multiple vacation stops this is the right road for you. You can stop in many small bays and take a swim in crystal-clear sea with no one around you or stop at small family owned taverns for a traditional meal. The road will take you to some of the most remote places as well as to some best-known Croatian destinations like Opatija, Zadar, Sibenik, Split and Dubrovnik and you just have to decide what do you want to discover, history and tradition, activities that will rise your adrenalin or gems hidden among trees and bays .

The Adriatic Highway can take you to several national parks and nature parks, small towns and villages and give you an easy ride to one of the world’s most beautiful riviera. The possibilities for exploring the Adriatic highway are unlimited and all you have to do is get in the car and embark on a ride that take you for a costal drive introducing you the whole Dalmatian coast and that will surly leave you speechless.
