The Mediterranean as it once was
Kaštela can be compared with the most pretty and most interesting places in Europe, the Saxon King wrote in his memoirs early in the 19th century.

Kaštela are picturesque small towns in central Dalmatia near Split, Trogir and Solin. Today’s Kaštela developed around seven small villages which used to be fortresses (Kaštela) and villages with fortified walls beside the coast. Kaštela’s town museum is in the famous stone castle of Vitturi, which was built in the 16th century. It looks as though it has risen up out of the sea, and is connected to the land by a small bridge.

The main part of the castle is the famous Vitturi park, an example of garden culture and one of the most beautiful parks in the whole of Dalmatia. The bible garden in Kaštel Novi, the botanical garden in Kaštel Lukšić and the town museum in Kaštel bear witness to the interesting and rich history of the beautiful fortresses.
Grape and wine are integral parts of the Dalmatian gastro offer. It has recently been discovered that the most appreciated American grape variety Zinfandel originates from Kaštela near Split. It has been a trademark of California’s vineyards for over a century and was brought their by Croatian immigrants from Kaštela, where they still grow it under the name of kaštelanski crljenak.

Due to the abundance of grape varieties grown in Central Dalmatia through history and brought by the local voyagers from across the world, they still hold the Wine Roads here within the tourist offer. This wine event includes winemakers both from the mainland and the islands, offering their guests the opportunity to taste the wine in their wine cellars.

The popular wine varieties of the region include maraština, pošip, vugava, kujundžuša, žilavka and plavac mali.

In Central Dalmatia, you can take an organized tour of forty olive growers on the so-called Olive Roads, taste and purchase oil and visit the Olive Growing Museum in Mirca on the island of Brač.
