What to Discover in Makarska
Makarska offers a lot of history, picturesque streets and buildings. An exploration through the old town is definitely worthwhile and should not be missed.
In the square Kačić Miošić, in the very center of the town, you will find the church of St. Mark’s. This square is located in the ancient district of Makarska with its narrow streets, which reminds a bit of a paved Mediterranean labyrinth.
The architecturally very interesting Franciscan Monastery is located in the southeastern district. The former wine cellar now serves as a shell museum, which is a bit idiosyncratic.
The main attraction of Makarska, however, are certainly the beaches that stretch all along the coast. They are considered the best beaches in Croatia and you can practice a lot of water sports here.
