Dubrovnik InformationDubrovnik is an ancient city situated on the Adriatic Sea in the south of Croatia, Dubrovnik is one of the most prominent tourist resorts of the Mediterranean. Home to a busy seaport and nestled in the middle of Dubrovnik-Neretva County, the city is nicknamed ‘the Pearl of the Adriatic’ and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. The old city walls encase a vibrant spot, a ‘city museum’ alive with sport, culture, sun worshipping and history, adding up to plenty of bustle and heaps of fun.
Must see attractions in DubrovnikA walk around the 2km long city walls in the old town will reward you with spectacular views (note: it is best to walk the walls either early in the morning or late afternoon in the mid-summer months, due to the soaring temperatures). The three entrances to the City Walls can be found on Stradun by the Pile gate, next to fort Saint John’s and at the Custom’s House gate. Once inside the city walls, visit Fort Minceta and Fort St. John’s as well as Fort Lawrence and Fort Revelin - all perfect reminders of the city’s defensive past. For an alternative view over Dubrovnik, take to the air in a cable car and snap up the perfect photo opportunity.
If you’re looking for an active holiday, you can take part in cliff jumping and sea swimming, or explore the Elaphite islands, Korcula, Pelješac and Mljet. Take a ten-minute ferry to the Island of Lokrum nature park to see its botanical garden, monastery and fort. The island offers the perfect vista for views of Dubrovnik, as well as unparalleled serenity and natural beauty. Top beaches in the area include Lapad Beach, a popular tree-lined pedestrianised spot 3.5km out of the old town, and Banje beach, at the edge of the old town. Try your hand at the local seaside pastimes of volleyball, football and water polo.
Other sights worth visiting include the Maritime Museum, documenting the city’s vital sailing and shipbuilding past, and Dubrovnik Natural History Museum, home to a 100 year-old taxidermy collection. The ornate pink marble Jesuit church, approached via a romantic baroque staircase modelled on the Spanish Steps in Rome, is a must-see, followed by the Franciscan Monastery and the Church of St. Ignatius.
Scenic drives from DubrovnikCollect your car from Dubrovnik airport and head to Mount Srđ, for great views as well as a museum housed within a fortress. Stop off in the traditional Bosanka village to see traditional local living. Once a thriving fishing village, Bosanka offers a slower pace, perfect for an evening stroll down by the water and a delicious meal in a waterfront restaurant.
Drive also to the coastal road to Cavtat, the southern-most seaside town in Croatia, situated on the opposite side of the bay. When you've had enough of the city crowds, take a scenic one and a half hour drive to the Gulf of Kotor; the southernmost fjord in Europe. Harmoniously quiet and incredibly beautiful, you’ll find sheer mountain backdrops to clear, blue waters, surrounded by lush, subtropical vegetation. Palm trees, magnolias, camellias, pomegranates, figs and grapevines are in abundance, adding to the exotic feel
