Dugopolje, Dalmatian hinterland
DUGOPOLJE TOURIST BOARD
Discover Dalmatian hinterland
Welcome to Dugopolje, a small and thriving municipality standing at the entrance to the Dalmatian hinterland, situated 15 km from Split, the administrative centre of the Split-Dalmatia County and the largest town on the Croatian coast. Dugopolje benefits from a convenient geographical and traffic position since it is located at the junction of the A1 Zagreb-Split-Dubrovnik motorway linking the north and the south of Croatia and the D1 Split-Sinj state road linking the coast and the hinterland of Central Dalmatia. Situated at the exit from the A1 motorway for Split, Dugopolje is just 28 km away from the international Split-Kaštela Airport and 18 km from the international Split Ferry Port and the Split Railway Station. The most popular tourist attractions on the Central Dalmatia coast are only half an hour (Trogir, Omiš) and up to 45 minutes (the Makarska Riviera) from Dugopolje by car. The pearls of the Dalmatian hinterland and the Cetinska Krajina Region – the towns of Sinj, Trilj and Vrlika – are approximately within the same driving distance.
Tourism activity in the Dugopolje municipality has only recently started to emerge, but has great potential for activity and sports tourism development. The appeal of the area relies on the unspoiled natural beauty of the north-facing slopes of Mount Mosor and the Vranjača cave in the Kotlenice village, a protected geomorphological natural monument.
Cycling, trekking, hiking, are only some activities which you can enjoy in this part of the Dalmatian hinterland. The football stadium of the Hrvatski Vitezovi Sports Centre in the Podi-Dugopolje commercial zone hosts a number of preseason football matches and competitions of both Croatian and football clubs from abroad, as well as football tournaments. The stadium is also home to a youth academy. The Podi-Dugopolje commercial zone offers all its guests a number of shopping centres and outlets, restaurants, supermarkets and furniture stores. A perfect starting point for taking a trip to the beautiful countryside of the Dalmatian hinterland – welcome to Dugopolje!
