Known as ‘the pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik is a magical city whose considerable historic and architectural significance has earned it a rightful place as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Dubrovnik is encircled by ancient walls and the stunning old town with its cobbled streets and narrow alleyways boasts an 18th-century Cathedral, a 14th-century Dominican Monastery and the famously well preserved Gothic Renaissance Rectors’ Palace housing the Cultural Historical Museum. You will find markets, boutiques, a myriad of dining and nightlife opportunities – and don’t forget to take a ride on the Mount Srd cable car which offers amazing views.
Out of town, Lapad offers peaceful coves fringed with evergreen forestry while, 18km south of Dubrovnik, you will come across Cavtat a small pretty harbour town with pretty cobbled streets, quaint houses, traditional churches, an impressive monastery, and a fortress. A wide, palm-fringed seaside promenade provides the perfect setting for cafes, bars, and many restaurants. Venture to the beautiful island of Lopud, completely free from cars, and with incredibly white sandy beaches, or hop over to Korcula Island to marvel at its medieval city.
Here you will find a collection of upscale resorts clustered around the fabulous coast. Take your pick from a huge choice of stunning shoreline resorts, including Jaz Beach in Budva.
