Miraculous Christmas village in Dalmatian hinterland. A place, where time stops and takes us in to one of the most beautiful Christmas fairytale

30.11.2019. | Announcements

Gornji Dolac will open its Christmas doors today on 30th November for the 2nd time, and visitors can expect over 2.000.000 light bulbs and more than hundred exhibits. If seeking a destination in Croatia for a merry adventure, this little village between Split, Omis and Makarska may be the perfect choice.

The decorations form various shapes, including those of animals and fantasy beings. Once the switch is turned on, the village becomes like a portal to another world where amazement awaits on every step.

Croatia is not just a country for summer vacation. There is plenty to witness and experience in other seasons, Christmas time being the key example. Not only is the Capital of Croatia officially among the best places for Merry Season in the world, smaller settlements also have their ways of being attractive for the holiday. The Village of Dolac Gornji becomes a fascinating realm of light and color, as the locals illuminate a large estate with numerous light bulbs.

In addition to the standard Christmas attractions the place offers many animals to see that are living at the settlement.

Estate of the family Lučić is actually a little village with a long history. On the estate there are some buildings, a pavilion and all the infrastructure. Very important part of the estate is also the house for tourist rent with the pool. In the village there isn’t enough of electricity and drinking water, but the owners, with their skills, took care of everything. Tihomir and Kristina are using their own well in which they are putting fresh drinking water when needed and for the electricity they are using modern aggregates.

Dalmatia is very well known to the people all over the world and they like coming there, but in despite of this, there is no this kind of advent products on that territory. Thus, the couple Lučić decided to make their own with our help – fairytale like and unique Christmas village.

In the new Christmas village in Gornji Dolac the real fairytale will be waiting for you, which will definitely not let you stay even minded. Beside the magnificent lights on the fairy white floor, a real special feeling will make all the animals that live on the estate. We can find horses there and pony, donkeys, lamas, does, Vietnam pigs and even a lake with fish.

When you will visit the Christmas village in the heart of Dalmatia, you will be able to ride a horse or a lama. A Santa will visit us, and you will be able to get a great home specialty as sausages, fritule, hot domestic wine and homemade tea.
