Jurin dvor – ecological olive grove

Jurin dvor d.o.o. since 2006 has planted olive groves exclusively on an ecological basis and has been enrolled in the Register of Ecological Producers. The family of Jure Vukušić grows and cares about every olive as a member of the family, with love and care, creating the best conditions for healthy growth and development. The results of many years of effort are reflected in the entire range of top-quality ecological products from the Jurin Dvor family garden. The area of 7,5 ha currently covers 1700 olive trees, which with their fruit allow the Jurin family's economy to produce healthy and ecologically produced food and natural cosmetics.

All the products are processed and packed with lots of love and attention, without any additives, dyes and preservatives. It honors the view of a rock pile who has turned into a working surface of such magnitude. This is a testimony to Dalmatian defiance that is stronger than all obstacles and which proves that the power of love for the earth can achieve what seems impossible.

Ecological orchard Terra Marascae

As part of the "terra marascae" project, the largest ecological orchard of the autochthonous marasca cherry in Europe was raised. The plantation in Katuni, created in extreme conditions has the highest point at 400 m and is mostly facing the south. Marasca, whose breeding in Dalmatia has a tradition of more than 500 years, has been recognized as "food and medicine" for its antioxidant activity since ancient times and is rightly called the "queen of cherry". From the beginning, values above 30 ° Brix are recorded, which is almost unique in the world.

The vision is to enhance ecological breeding and the gifts that nature provides and create high value products. On the surface of a total of more than 100 hectares, cherry, almonds and medicinal herbs are also planted, such as immortelle and lavender. Tourists and all other interested parties are offered a tour of our field and various events can be organized.

Winery Biskupović

The tradition of dealing with winemaking in the Biskupović family dates from the thirties of the last century, when his elders raised about 3000 grapevine vines, some of them on the hill, some in the field, and since then, the Biskupović family did not forget the bread from the stone and the peasant moe that raised them.

Nowadays, spouses Jozo and Ana Biskupović are known for their gray and black pinot counts of over 8,000 vines, and for years on their estate they have been successfully producing healthy food and dealing with eco-tourism by restoring old stone and building new homes on their estate, eco- ethno village on the plateau of Kreševo Brdo, at the foot of the northern side of Kreševnica Brdo. In their exclusive facilities suitable for rural tourism during the tourist season in recent years there are groups of guests, especially in the summer and autumn. Family Biskupović known for their diligence, produces over 12,000 liters of gray pinot per year.

Biokovo Mountain

The mountain Biokovo is a massif in the Split-Dalmatia County, which divides the Adriatic from Zagora. Biokovo is almost bare on the southern side of the mountain, but vegetation is varied and interesting. Klek, downy oak and the white oak are at the base, and beech, maple, lime, fir and Dalmatian black pine in the higher parts of the mountain and with more protected endemic species; biokovsko zvonce and biokovska zečina and others. The animal world is also diverse, and these animals are also inhabited here: weasel, mink, eagle owl, golden eagle, short-toed eagle, chamois, mouflon and others, and the Biokovo cave beetle which is an endem.

In 1981, Biokovo was declared a park of nature in whose area is also the Botanical Garden located in the village of Kotišina. The botanical garden of Kotišina is worth visiting, at an altitude of 350-500 meters and an area of 16.5 ha. It was founded by the friar Jure Radić, PhD for the protection and conservation of the Biokovo plant world, which includes about 300 mediterranean and mountain plants.

Although beautiful, the mountain of Biokovo is dangerous if it is not sufficiently respected, so it is advisable to the enthusiasts to take extreme care, using only marked walking trails, or going on one of the professionally organized excursions.

Canyon of the river Cetina

The significant landscape of the Cetina canyon since 1963 stretches from Tisno to the mouth. In 1774, an Italian biologist, travel writer Alberto Fortis, wrote about canyon of Cetina in his work "The Way to Dalmatia". The protected canyon is diverse. In some parts of the canyon, the canyons are fairly widespread and relatively laid, so there are subwalls of once-treated surfaces, but which are most commonly poorly seen today because they are covered with macchia and forest due to the neglect of traditional agriculture. On some sections the canyon is extremely narrow and steep and has vertical cliffs. A special attraction is the waterfall of Velika and Mala Gubavica. The canyon alone, in other words is a geomorphologic phenomenon characterized by karst, where the river with the work of water carves into the limestone base. Over 100 kilometers long, Cetina offers an abundance of adventure tourism and extreme sports thanks to the natural conditions of the Cetina canyon. As a reminder of the turbulent history of these regions, almost all of the Cetina River stretches along numerous medieval forts. Some of them are well hidden and partially destroyed, while others today are proud of their elevations and serve as lookouts. It is an ideal place for an active holiday and a stay in nature.
