"Luštica Bay is a destination of choice this summer as well: delight on as many as five beaches, the gastronomic story of the location woven by a series of restaurants along the promenade and the event calendar creates the identity of the summer in the new city on the Adriatic. The development of the destination is accompanied by the opening of Centrale Piazza - a new meeting place. Premium pub, national restaurant, cafeteria, conceptual beauty bar, art gallery, and other shopping units bring new energy to the city center. The five beaches are a unique signature of Luštica Bay - Almara Beach club and restaurant have been synonymous with a quality day at sea for years, and Ramla, as a new concept, brings an innovative dimension of fun on the beach. Among the events, I would like to highlight: Hello Summer Festival, scheduled for June 25; enjoyment of the classics is brought by the concert of Verica Čuljković and Quartet Unique will perform on July 13, and the theater performance of Marlene Dietrich is scheduled for July 15.
