Podstrana-Sv.Martin

Situated to the southeast of Split, Podstrana is a resort lying only about 11 km from this major port city. This Central Dalmatian municipality includes the districts  of Stara Podstrana, Mutogras, Sveti Martin, Grljevac and Strozanac, in which a total of 9,100 people reside. Most of the residents subsist from agriculture- particularly from olives, apricots, and wine- as well as from tourism. Tourism has turned this once quiet fishing village into a quiet resort, where tourists like to come and rest while being, at the same time, close enough to the culturally and historically interesting city of Split. The origin of the town can be traced back to Stara Podstrana, a small village above the coast. Surrounded by mountains, the century old stone houses take their places next to each other and old churches perch themselves on the hilltops to overlook the sparkling Adriatic Sea.

The oldest church in the village is Sveti Juraj located on Mount Vrsina and towering above the village. The early Romanesque church dating back to the 11th century can be reached by taking the newly established crossroads. The nave church has a rectangular apse with a stone altar. In June the traditional Sveti Juraj Festival is celebrated here. Shopping and dining options can be found along the main road in Podstrana as well as on the mountain slopes of the coast where you can enjoy some wonderful vistas.
