Podgora, Croatia - holiday information

Podgora, riviera Makarska, Croatia – visitor information

With time Podgora grew into one of the most attractive tourist settlements in Dalmatia. The tourist Podgora managed to harmoniously include new contents and hotels to the already existing old fishing settlement. Its population was always tied to the sea so it is no wonder that tourism is the main economic branch of this settlement. Podgora also has a vivacious harbour for fishing boats and a beautiful stone waterfront. On the hill just above the mentioned harbour there is a monument Galebova krila (The wing of a seagull) built in the year 1962 as a sign of remembrance of the winning antifascist Dalmatian navy in Second World War. From other landmarks we recommend you visit the The Chapel of Holy heart of Jesus (Kapela Svetog srca Isusovog) built in the 19th century by the family Mrkušic and the Punta (pier) with the Church of St. Tekla which serves as a sailing orientation mark, while the local fishermen find it significant since it’s a place that has a lot of fish that come with the sea current.
