Podgora - the pearl of the Adriatic littoral, situated 70 km southeast of Split and 160 km northwest of Dubrovnik on the slopes of the Biokovo Mountain and embedded in a landscape interspersed with olive-trees pinewood and other mediterianean vegetation, is the ideal place for rest and relaxation. Thanks to its favourable climate, the pebly beaches and cozy bays with the sea which is relatively warm very early in the year. Podgora is an attractive see-side resort from the early spring to the late autumn. Its rarely beautiful landscape, the azure sky and the limpid sea make Podgora the peerless beauty spot of the Adriatic.
At the very heart of Dalmatia, in enviromentally the cleanest part of the claerest sea in the world lies Podgora - the Croatian Adriatic Princess. Here, under the cliffs of Mount Biokovo, bordered by a necklace made of Mediterranean vegetation and golden beaches, lapped at by the sea`s blue garment, Podgora represents a tourist and natural oasis of your holiday dreams. Throughout its long history, all the way since antiqity until the very present day, life in Podgora went on with the sea and for the sea, without ever questioning the unique harmony resulting from its inhernt differences: from the beautiful mountain still keeping the secrets of ancient hamlets, throught terraced vineyards, olive-groves and pastures that have been a pledge of Podgora`s culture and well-being for centuries, all the way to the high seas attracting generations of its inhabitants, famous seamen and fisherman. The challenge of the sea has left a strong mark on the temperature of Podgora`s people, as well as become incorporated into its architecture.
Since the times of ancient sailboats that have sailed away beyond the horizons of time - until modern times, with a small harbour and a marina around which Podgora has dressed its stiny centre, Podgora has always been a holiday adventure, ready to meet your every fancy. Almost a century long tourism tradition is therefore not felt in Podgora as a burden brought about by the modern times. It is merely a civilizational continuance of the natural surroundings: the coastline and the sae, engaged in peripetual interwining.
