Podstrana (Croatia)

Podstrana is a municipality in Croatia in the Split-Dalmatia county. It has a population of 7,341 (2001 census), 97% which are Croats.

In the Second World War, the town suffered 131 casualties.[1] Out of the civilian casualties, 31 were killed by Italian forces, 11 by German forces, 12 by Yugoslav Partisans, and 7 by Allied bombing.

From a fairly rural landscape pre WWII, proximity to Split (8km) as well as its attractive shoreline have transformed Podstrana into a very attractive suburb. Peach growing has been replaced by tourism which is now the dominant employer for the population. The jewel in the crown of Podstrana's tourism is the Le Méridien Lav, Split five star luxury hotel which attracts wealthy clientele from USA, Europe and Russia.
