Every year during the weekends in Juli and August Zagvozd is home to the traditional festival Glumci u Zagvozdu (Actors in Zagvozd).So every weekend people from all over Dalmatia (even Croatia) come to this small town behind the mountain Biokovo and taste the local food and wine and by the way watch open air theater on various locations in the town.
This is probably the only square in Europe that is called by the actors. The festival started on this square and so it got his todays name.
You can access Zagvozd easy by the A1 higway, just drive about 50-60 km to the east from Split and you there. About 30 minuter of normal driving.
