Zvjezdarnica i Astro park Makarska
Makarska Observatory and Astro Park are unique scientific and tourist facilities in the city. As the youngest observatory in the Republic of Croatia, it is unique for several reasons: it was built on a monument, located in the city center on a small natural hill just 50 m from the waterfront and the city beach. The monument within which the Makarska Observatory is located was erected in 1974 as a memorial center for all veterans killed in the Second World War from the area of Makarska and Makarska Riviera. It is the work of the famous architect Eng. Matija Salaj (+2014), who is also one of the pioneers of architects in tourism on our coast.
