• Hotel
    At the Makarska Marineta (small coast), at the place where two Dalmatian houses made of stone were located up to the 19th century, a palace of the Family Kačić-Peko was constructed in the Romantic forms of a fortified castle. It has trefoil of the Renaissance fence and an outer semi-circular stair-case with a small fountain and a park. It was built on the model of a rural fortified palace, built with bricks, mortar and cement. Since the beginning of the last century it was used as a library, and in 1916 it even became the Town Library. After the building was privatised in the year 2002, a thorough reconstruction and adaptation of the palace was carried out, and the palace became a representative model of one of the most beautiful and the oldest buildings in the area. The palace retained its original form and beauty and was proclaimed the status of a cultural monument. Within the palace, today is a modern and comfortable hotel that fascinates with its inner and outer beauty that does not leave you indifferent. The hotel is situated 20 meters from the sea from the south side and from the north side it faces the main square and the old town centre. On the both sides of the hotel there are two sunny spacious terraces with a big terrace on the top of the building where you can enjoy the view of the islands and mountain Biokovo as well as the town of Makarska. The union of centuries-old beauty and high-quality service. That is the hotel Porin.
  • About Makarska
    Makarska is one of the most famous tourist destinations on the Croatian coast, attractive for its nature and good climate, rich in tourist attractions and full of hospitable hosts. To this day, Makarska is known for its sandy beach, which is almost two kilometres long. The walkways are lined with pine trees and surrounded by luxury hotels, tourist facilities, and gastronomic havens so there is always plenty of fun for both adults and children. Makarska is located in the foothill of mountain Biokovo (1762 m), which provides protection from the harsh continental climate and contributes to its rich Mediterranean vegetation, mild winters and long, warm summers cooled by a refreshing breeze called maestral. Makarska has more than 2750 hours of sun each year and the air temperature is above 20°C from July to September. During these same months, the crystal-clear sea averages with the temperature above 20°C. During the summer months the harbour fills up with yachts and tourist ships, while young people crowd the main Kačić square enjoying all sorts of entertainment and cultural performances. As the night starts descending, Makarska becomes more lively , and its cafés, restaurants and discotheques become the heart of Makarska. The town of Makarska grew around a natural harbour protected by a picturesque peninsula of Sveti Petar (St. Peter) and the cape Osejava. It is the only harbour of this kind between the delta of Cetina and Neretva rivers. The best way to become familiar with the history of this town is by visiting the Franciscan monastery which recently celebrated its 500th anniversary. The monastery boasts a picture gallery, library, one-of-a-kind Malaco-logical museum (dedicated to the study and preservation of mollusks) and the “Mountains and Sea” institute.
