Dubrovnik is a stunningly intact walled city on the Adriatic Sea coast of the extreme south of Croatia. It's one of the most prominent tourist resorts of the Mediterranean and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.
What to visit
You will probably enter the Old Town through Pile Gate – in front of you is Stradun. Here you will find the Onofrio Fountain, built in 1438. On the right is the Franciscan Monastery, with one of the oldest functioning pharmacies in Europe. At the other end of the Stradun, you will find the locals’ favourite meeting place, the Orlando Column, with the nearby Sponza Place and the baroque Church of St. Blaise. Here also is the Rector’s Palace, built in 1441, which is now a city museum packed with valuable and historic exhibits.
One of Dubrovnik’s famed attractions used to be its cable car – giving visitors a chance to take in some spectacular views of the Old Town and the shoreline.
Watersports, kayaking, tennis, skiing, cycling, sea swimming, Croatia Folklore tour, and trips to nearby islands including Lokrum and the Elafiti islands as well as those a little further afield, and to other towns along the coastline. You can also have a day trip to Montenegro and/or Medugorje.
Stay 3, 4 or 7 nights in Dubrovnik in a 3, 4 or 5 stars hotel.
