Thanks to frequent ferry lines you can take interesting field trips with your car to the mainland, for instance:
- Split, the biggest city in Dalmatia and second biggest in the country which can be reached in 110 minutes (30 minutes by ferry and 80 minutes by car). Split is best known for its ancient palace built by roman emperor Diocletian. Well preserved segments of the palace are now the centre of Split's Old town. In the vicinity of Split there are the ruins of Salona, antique capital of roman province of Dalmatia, Trogir – one of the best preserved towns built in roman-gothic style, Vranjača cave and the town of Sinj (known for its traditional game called Alka). On your way to Split, you can visit the town of Omiš – by which the Cetina canyon lays and Makarska, in whose vicinity is nature park Biokovo, and the town of Imotski with its Blue and Red Lake isn't far.
- Dubrovnik, a city whose center is surrounded by massive stone walls from the Middle ages. The trip will take about 150 minute (30 + 120). The thing to see on the way is the town of Ston, a small town with the longest fortification walls in Europe and the world's oldest active salt mill. And on your trip you should also visit the Neretva River valley and the Baćina lakes.
- to the border with BiH reachable in 60 minutes (30 + 30). In Herzegovina, near the border, there is a well known catholic shrine Međugorje, medieval town of Počitelj, also Kravice falls and nature park Hutovo Blato.
