Dubrovnik

As you enter Dubrovnik, you will quickly understand why this UNESCO World Heritage site-listed city of Dubrovnik is regarded as one of the most beautiful in the world. Protected through the ages by massive 16th century stone walls, Dubrovnik is filled with evidence of its rich history and culture, striking architecture and old-world charm.

Enter the city and enjoy a world of Baroque, Renaissance, and Gothic themed buildings. Dubrovnik is as famous for its shiny marble streets as it is for breathtaking, panoramic views of the ocean. Dubrovnik has been the setting for a number of TV series and movies, including Game of Thrones and the recently released Robin Hood movie featuring Jamie Foxx as Little John.

A short, 4-minute cable car ride will take you to the top of Mount Srd, where you will be rewarded with an unforgettable view of Dubrovnik’s Old Town. The baked clay tiles that form the roofs of Dubrovnik buildings also are striking in appearance from the aerial view. Look along the coastline and you can see the Elaphiti Islands. This is the perfect vantage point to have your camera handy for photos!

There are so many fascinating things to do and see in Dubrovnik. Beyond the walls of the Old Town, you can examine Baroque architecture at Dubrovnik Cathedral, enjoy one of the luxurious beachside bars, or grab a bite to eat at the esteemed Nautika restaurant. How about a wine tasting tour? Dubrovnik is the home of the longest running and oldest European pharmacy. Located inside Dubrovnik’s Franciscan Monastery, it has been operating since 1317.

The Gothic-Renaissance Rector’s Palace is a must-see highlight of Dubrovnik. It served several functions throughout history, and multiple additions have been made to the structure of the palace, including some Baroque elements. In the atrium, you will notice a statue of Miho Pracat, built in honor of a generous citizen of Dubrovnik. In fact, Miho Pracat is the only citizen of Dubrovnik in 1,000 years who has a statue constructed to honor him.

Dubrovnik also has one of the oldest recorded sewage systems, constructed in 1296. It is still in use today.

As you stroll around the perimeter of Dubrovnik, you will be amazed by the sheer size of the City Walls, and the beautiful views.

Dubrovnik's Old Town Allure

Dubrovnik’s Old Town offers the chance to explore what an actual medieval town was like. Dubrovnik, nicknamed by the famous poet Lord Byron as the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” is one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. Dubrovnik was at its most powerful during the 15th and 16th centuries, rivaling even Venice in prominence. A devastating earthquake in 1667 destroyed almost all the public buildings in Dubrovnik, but miraculously, the city walls remained intact, and Dubrovnik’s churches, monasteries, and palaces were preserved.
