ABOUT US

In 2005, Alan founded Secret Dalmatia as a result of his lifelong intent to reveal the Croatian heritage to the world. The expert team of travel designers behind Secret Dalmatia is dedicated to introducing remote locations of our region to the travel map and present the highlights of Croatia in a new way. Designing private custom-made programs and insisting on providing a luxury service, our mission is to show you as much of Croatia as possible. Our guests get an insight into unique identities of Croatian cities and attractions through original, and often exclusive, tours.

ALAN MANDIC

As the founder and managing director of Secret Dalmatia, Alan is personally dedicated to the vision of bringing the hidden beauties of Croatia to every Client. Alan has a deep connection to his country, so after finishing his university education at the New England School of Art & Design in Boston, he decided to return to Croatia. The decision to found Secret Dalmatia followed an epiphany he had whilst wandering around Bribirska Glavica, one of the most important archaeological sites in the country. As the sunset settled in the distance, he stumbled upon two open sarcophagi and thought: “I must show this to the world!” Few months later, in 2005, he put together his passion, experience, and knowledge to create Secret Dalmatia and he has been dedicated to it full-time ever since.

OUR PROJECTS

Secret Dalmatia travel agency was built upon a simple premise: to always show more, strive higher, go deeper, and create experiences that leave a lasting impression. Once the agency became well-established, it was time to single out the favorites into the spotlight. Today, we manage multiple specialized platforms for travel in Croatia and the rest of the world.

Culinary Croatia was our first project which has brought many gourmet travelers on unique culinary escapades all around the country. 
Sailing in Croatia arose from the simple fact that there are over 1.000 beautiful Croatian islands and even more travelers seeking to explore them. Luxury Croatian Villas compiles the country’s finest vacation estates, all at stunning locations and with a bold character.
Vanishing Worlds is the next step of our evolution: we are taking our guests beyond the Adriatic region, to places equally as wondrous, and equally as endangered by the pace of modern-day change.
