Dubrovnik

From its spellbinding city walls to the colourful city life, it’s a destination not to be missed

Experience Dubrovnik

a unique fusion of historical sights and pristine beaches

Spirit of Dubrovnik, this stunning medieval stone walled city rising proudly from the blue Adriatic is summed up in its passionate motto of “Libertas”: freedom. Today, Dubrovnik is one of the Europe’s most attractive tourist destinations and its worldwide fame is well deserved. Even though the grand fortification encircling the Unesco protected old town is the first sight you see upon arrival, its interior is just as impressive. As you walk through the streets heaving with people, take a moment to savour the vista of the shining paving stones of Stradun, the heart of the city.

A sightseers delight, Dubrovnik offers much more than historical treasures. Numerous festivals, galleries and museums are a definite must see, while avid travellers will find delight in the vast selection of accommodation choices, fantastic restaurants offering the best of Croatian and international cuisine and busting cafés and nightclubs. String of beaches ranging from white pebble to wild and tranquil rock sanctuaries will ensure you don’t miss out on all the fun in the sun.
