New Pelješac Bridge: Dreamy Southern Dalmatia is Now 2 Hours Closer!
Looking for a perfect holiday destination for 2022? Look no further, because southern Dalmatia is the place to be this year.
This Croatian region attracts tourists from around the globe for a good reason - it is a rare concentration of natural and historical wonders in a small geographic area. Crystal clear waters, plenty of islands, unique nature parks, and centuries old charming Mediterranean towns are some of the things to expect.
Accessibility problem solved
This part of the country is easily accessible by plane, with internationally well-connected airports in Split and Dubrovnik. However, the situation for everyone traveling by land has not been that great. Because of Croatia’s complicated geography, traveling to the south was quite time-consuming. As the country is split in two territories, separated with a tiny part of Bosnian land and the city of Neum, the travel demanded crossing the border, leaving the EU, and then entering again before continuing the journey.
With completion of the Pelješac bridge, this situation is no longer a problem! The impressive 2.400 meter long bridge now connects the two parts of the country, and thus makes the beauties of the south more accessible than ever before. Its full completion is expected in May 2022, so anyone planning to visit some of this region’s hip places this summer can count on a much shorter travel time. You can expect to save up to 2 hours in one way.
This means 4 hours more for enjoying your holidays!
