They are other beautiful routes that are well connected to roads of neighbouring places like Primošten and Rogoznica.
Explore by bike
Get into a role of real explorer and dare to go on a ride along these exciting routes. Take in the colours and scents of the fascinating Mediterranean self-grown herbs and try having a guess of what the different types of herbs are used for (and when you're stuck – you can always take a look at the educational boards!).
Get to know Marina's attractions – climb to belvedere on Drid hill near the church of Our Lady of Snow, visit St Philip and Jacob's Cave or go on a mini-excursion to Gustirne village!
If you’re into historical treasures, bear in mind that Marina Hinterland has plenty to offer which will no doubt intrigue you – like church of St Mary from 9th century, mentioned in Trogir Scriptures from 1300; or graveyard in Blizna Gornja village – classical-antiquity locality located in karst field at the very border of Trogir and Šibenik – a pond that never dries, not even during summer droughts!
These, and many other curiosities of this region will be best described by locals – exchange a couple of kind words with these hard working peasants who have been involved with cattle breeding, winemaking and olive growing for centuries; allow them to introduce you to the delights of traditional cuisine. You can try local cuisine and spend a night in private accommodation -there's nothing more appealing for true explorers on two-wheels than a refreshment break with an authentic atmosphere. If you want to take something with you as a souvenir then a symbolic packet of dried figs and a litre of golden olive oil from Marina would be a great choice!
