Littoral Croatia

Littoral Croatia (Croatian: "Primorska Hrvatska") was a medieval Croat duchy. The other name for this duchy is "Dalmatian Croatia" ("Dalmatinska Hrvatska").

It was the biggest of medieval Croat duchies, before it united with Pannonian Croatia, during the reign of the king Tomislav in early 10. century.

Throughout its time, the region had several capital cities, namely: Bihać, Klis, Solin, Biograd, Knin and Nin.
