MAKARSKA lies at the foot of Biokovo, in a natural harbour closed by the Osejava promontory from the south-east, and by St. Petar peninsula on the north-west. Makarska is an economic, cultural and tourist centre of the Makarska Littoral. There is ferry landing pier for the destination Sumartin on Bra? island in the port. It consists of the old core of the Mediterranean type and a newer part with hotels, restaurants, shops, etc. It has a beautiful 1500 m long beach in a pine wood and numerous sandy coves. It developed from Makar, a settlement at the foot of Biokovo which was mentioned as Muccurum in the documents of the council in ancient Salona of 4th May, 533. At the foothill of Biokovo, as protectors of Makarska, the villages Veliko Brdo, Puharici, Makar and Kotišina are situated, with a Biokovo botanical garden in the latter. Those places have kept the beauty of original popular architecture, so that they are attractive excursion targets today.
BIOKOVO MOUNTAIN - Biokovo mountain stretches throughout the whole Makarska riviera and forms a beautiful and gigantic background for it - Mediterranean phenomenon; if you are lucky with the weather, from the top of the Biokvo (1762 m) you can see Italy as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina! Standing on the 2nd highest peak of Croatia you will see three countries... Why to go there? the view is spectacular; variety of Mediterranean vegetation, remnants of ancient stone made houses, prehistorical burial grounds called "Gomilas“ etc. Easily accessible by bicycles.

It is the pure center of the city; you can see the Jupiter's temple /turned into Christian church/, as well as Diokletian's mausoleum /turned into Christian cathedral – the oldest cathedral in the world by the time the building was built – before the Christianity was officially allowed in Roman empire!!!/
