Dalmatian Coast (Dubrovnik)

Holidays

The Old City of Dubrovnik is an outstanding example of a late-medieval walled city and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its position right on the edge of the Adriatic Sea makes it a varied choice for a city break, with plenty of culture and history as well as wonderful natural attractions on offer.

Known as the Pearl of the Adriatic, and often described as one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean, Dubrovnik is a brilliant choice for a romantic getaway, a cultural escape or a city break in the sun. There are several lovely beaches right next to the city, while sailing is a popular option for those wishing to explore a little further afield.

Dubrovnik's cultural attractions

There are too many cultural and historical attractions in Dubrovnik to list them all - the following are just a few of the most prominent.

• City walls - You can't miss the 2 km long city walls that encircle the Old Town. A stroll along them is essential to get an overview of Dubrovnik's historic centre. From this vantage point you'll also have outstanding views across the rest of the city and out to sea.
• Rector's Palace - This ornate and striking building dates from the 11th century and now houses a museum all about Dubrovnik's fascinating history.
 Franciscan Monastery - There are numerous religious buildings worth visiting in Dubrovnik, but the Franciscan Monastery stands out thanks to its beautiful Baroque church and Romanesque cloister.
• Lovrijenac Fort - Located outside the city walls on the top of the imposing sea cliffs is Lovrijenac Fort. The seaward-facing walls are up to 12 m thick in places and the building is now used for outdoor performances during the summer months.
• Dominican Monastery Museum - Art lovers can't leave Dubrovnik without paying a visit to this museum, which is home to an impressive collection of pieces by Dubrovnik's best-known painters from the 15th and 16th centuries. Bozidarevic, Hamzic and Dobricevic are among the artists represented here.

Exploring the Adriatic

Dubrovnik's position on the coast means you shouldn't conclude your stay in the city without spending a bit of time soaking up the glorious Adriatic scenery. There are a few beaches within easy reach, including Lapad Beach, which is a 3.5 km long stretch of sand that's backed by restaurants, cafes and bars, and Banje Beach, which is a pebbly spot with plenty of activities on offer.

Another option is to hop on a ferry from the Old Town port to visit Lokrum Island - a great way to escape the crowds. This isle is just a ten-minute boat ride from the mainland and a lovely place to get away from it all. It is also possible to reach the stunning Elaphite archipelago by boat from the city, allowing you to explore the likes of Sipan, Lopud and Kolocep on a day trip. In addition to wonderful beaches, these islands also boast fascinating monuments and historical attractions.
