About the destination:

Kaštel Štafilić is a town within the administrative area of Kaštela, an agglomeration of seven small settlements in Croatia, located northwest of the city of Split on the central Dalmatian coast. The Split airport is only 5-minute drive from here.

The town features a 508-year old castle Rotondo, located by a sea cliff. It was initially built on an island, but was later linked to the land with a movable bridge

The oldest tree in Croatia, Mastrinka Olive Tree estimated to be over 1,500 years old, can also be found in this city.  The tree is 11 meters high, with a radius of 23 metres.

In the area of ​​Kaštel Štafilić we find traces of Neanderthal prehistoric settlements. The Illyrians who built the castles in this area, as well as the Romans who built the harbor and founded a Roman veterans’ village, left behind their footsteps.

Kaštel Gomiilica, another town witnih a 10-minute drive, is known also as the place featured in Game of Thrones season five. It represents Free City of Braavos.
