Welcome to Makarska Google Map

Makarska is a picturesque town and port at the foot of the towering Biokovo mountain. The old town core is classically Mediterranean and the newer part with hotels and resorts radiates outward. It's surrounded by delightful pebble beaches and within easy reach of Brela beach.

The setting is stunning and the climate relatively mild since the port is protected by the mountain. There are no real cultural sights to speak of but Makarska is an ideal base for active travellers.

History of Makarska

High in the Biokovo mountains lies the old village of Markar , probably the Roman Muccurum , which was destroyed by the Goths in 548. The Slavs moved in in the 7th century and spread down the coast. They were not peaceable folks. Their tribe the Neretlyans , fought continuously against the Venetians who gazed covetously on their prime real estate on the Adriatic. The Neretlyans were strong enough to force the Venetians to pay tribute for the privilege of sailing unmolested past their settlement. Makarska was snatched up by the Croatian King Kresimir in the 11th century and then fell under Bosnian rule until the Turks came in 1499 and destroyed it. It remained under Turkish rule for 150 years during which time it became the main port for the salt trade for all of Bosnia and Hercegovina. When the Turks left , Venice got ahold of the town again and kept it until 1797.
