Cultural Heritage Municipality of Unešić, Croatia


The area of Dalmatian Hinterland (Croatian: Dalmatinska Zagora), is the southern inland region of Croatia. The name Zagora means "behind hills", which is a reference to the fact that it is the part of Dalmatia that is not coastal. The cultural heritage area is under the municipality of Unešić and includes archaeological heritage and historic buildings that are all over the area. They represent more or less all of the historical epochs from prehistory to modern days. The significance of these locations is reflected in the continuity of life in this area. Quantity and quality of archaeological sites suggests the need for the systematic archaeological research.
