This view features the Dalmatian coastline of Croatia around the city of Split Split, Kroatien . Much of the region can be characterized by northwest-southeast oriented linear islands and embayments of the Adriatic Sea.

This distinctive coastal geomorphology is the result of faulting caused by tectonic activity in the region and sea level rise.
