Byzantine architecture in Poreche and Ravenne and the early roman style is preserved in Zadar.

Also diving is popular among tourist activities. The best place for it is St. Andija Island. The depth of the sea here is up to 78 meters. Inhabited by fishes and corals and covered with algi, a wonderful underwater wall reaching the bottom is expecting both the beginners and professionals of diving. At 26 meters depth there is a cave, surrounded with spots where to find red corals. The costs and bays of Croatia are perfect for a family rest. In the evening you can see hedgehogs storming the grass.
