THE DALMATIAN COAST & ITS ISLANDS:

EXPLORING CROATIA’S TREASURES

June 19 - 27, 2013 TRIP OVERVIEW

Discover striking beauty, the contrast

of remains left by many cultures, and

the architectural and artistic

excellence of monuments, both famed

and less known.

Ancient Greek settlers, Roman and

Byzantine emperors, Venetian doges,

and Ottoman caliphs have all made

their mark on the sun-dappled,

island-dotted stretch of the Adriatic

Sea. Yet despite some turbulent

modern times, the small,

well-preserved medieval towns

lining the coast of Croatia and

Montenegro, the phenomenal

monuments, and the exquisite

landscapes have retained their

original character.

These historic coastal towns and

islands are compact and best

appreciated when traveling in a

smaller ship. Your cruise aboard the

private Corinthian, accommodating

only 100 guests in 50 suites, allows

you to experience the places with a

few like-minded travelers and at a

leisurely pace. Your Harvard study

leader, Peter W. Galbraith, who was

the first US Ambassador to Croatia

from 1993 to 1998, will share his

expertise and insights on the region.

Begin in Croatia exploring the medieval

splendors of Dubrovnik. Next, visit

Kotor in Montenegro, reached through

southern Europe’s only fjord, before

returning to Croatia and Korcula

Island, caressed by gentle breezes and

graced with Venetian spires. Tour the

ancient city of Split and the lovely

seaside town of Mali Losinj. Stroll

through the lavender-scented lanes of

Hvar, which is quietly becoming the

Mediterranean’s newest Riviera.

As befits a private-style cruise, you

will have the opportunity to

participate in activities such as

swimming and snorkeling in turquoise

waters from Corinthian’s swimming

platform or biking country lanes on

the ship’s fleet of bikes.

HARVARD STUDY LEADER

Cover: Dubrovnik, Croatia

Below: Kotor, Montenegro

Peter W. Galbraith AB ’73, KSG ’78 served as the first US

Ambassador to Croatia and has held senior positions in the US

Government and the United Nations.

Galbraith was actively involved in the Croatia and Bosnia peace

processes. During the Bosnian war years, he was responsible

for US humanitarian programs in the former Yugoslavia and for

US relations with the UNPROFOR mission headquartered in Zagreb. Galbraith’s

diplomatic interventions facilitated the flow of humanitarian assistance to

Bosnia and secured the 1993 release of more than 5,000 prisoners of war held in

inhumane conditions by Bosnian Croat forces. He was co-mediator and principal

architect of the 1995 Erdut Agreement that ended the war in Croatia by providing

for peaceful reintegration of Serb-held Eastern Slavonia into Croatia.

Currently, Galbraith is the Senior Diplomatic Fellow at the Center for Arms Control

and Non-Proliferation where his work focuses on Iraq, the greater Middle East, and

conflict resolution and post-conflict reconstruction, specifically in the Balkans,

Indonesia, Iraq, India/Pakistan, and Southeast Asia.

ADDITIONAL STUDY LEADER

Richard Saller, dean of the School of Humanities and Sciences at Stanford,

teaches courses in Roman history and Western civilization. Of this itinerary, he

says, “I came to know about Dalmatia as a central arena of Roman history [that] .

. . played an important role in the last stages of the Roman Empire. Diocletian, the

only Roman emperor who voluntarily retired from oce, famously spent his last

years at his Dalmatian palace raising cabbages. After Rome fell, Dalmatia’s rich

history continued as it came under Byzantine and then Venetian rule.”
