Discovering Dalmatia (22/11 – 25/11) is a programme of the Institute of Art History – Centre Cvito Fisković in Split, which is being held for the third year running. It is dedicated to those cultural-historical aspects of the Croatian coast which, via multilayered connections with the Mediterranean and European world, were gradually uncovered, particularly in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, when numerous travel writers and artists undertook the Grand Tour and began regularly visiting the eastern Adriatic coast.
