Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is sure to take your breath away - the pale stone of the ancient city walls and ornate pires stretching above the red roofs, surrounded by the sparkling waters of the Adriatic. It is no surprise that it is known as ‘the pearl of the Adriatic’

Dubrovnik’s picture-postcard looks and her idyllic location have been attracting visitors for centuries. The old walled city, with its charming piazzas and narrow streets linked by steep steps, is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. For the best views over the coast, take a walk right around the city walls, which run for just under two kilometres and are 25 metres high at their highest point.

As you wander the streets of the old town you will find new discoveries at every twist and turn. Start by walking along the Stradun, the main street, paved with gleaming marble and lined with enticing boutiques and welcoming cafes. Shop for local handicrafts, candied orange peel or fresh fruit at the morning market. One of the things which makes Dubrovnik so special is its seafront location. The old town is on a peninsula with beaches to either side, making it easy to combine sightseeing with swimming in the beautiful, crystal-clear waters and soaking up the sun.


Our Hotels

Many of our hotels are in the area called Ploce, to the east of the old town, built in to the hillside overlooking the sea. To the west is the Lapad peninsula, where a number of our hotels are also situated, which is home to many of the beaches favoured by locals. There are beautiful views from all parts of the Dubrovnik coast, looking out to the islands nearby Lokrum, and the Elaphite islands to the north.


Connections

Ferry/catamaran services depart from Dubrovnik for the Elaphite islands (Sipan and Lopud) as well as for Mjlet and Korcula.  


Transfers and Distances

Dubrovnik Airport: 25km (30 minutes drive).

You could easily spend several days exploring Dubrovnik’s old town, and sun-seekers will be more than satisfied with the town’s beaches, however, there is also plenty to discover further afield, whether you choose to travel by sea or overland. One of the most popular pastimes for those who stay here is to take a boat trip from the busy harbour. Boats head out every morning to visit the nearby islands. If you prefer something more energetic it is also possible to take a safari by sea kayak. A boat trip is the perfect complement to sightseeing; a way of relaxing whilst admiring the views. The islands also offer some of the best beaches and places to swim.


Lokrum

This beautiful sub-tropical island lies just off the coast of Dubrovnik. Legend has it that Richard the Lionheart was once shipwrecked here. It’s a great place to walk in the woods, picnic and enjoy the lush vegetation. At the centre of the island lies an atmospheric old botanical garden, and it is also home to a ruined fort and a Benedictine Monastery. Enjoy a swim in the crystal-clear Adriatic from the rocky beaches, or try the warm saltwater lake. Lokrum also affords great views over the old town of Dubrovnik.


Three Islands Cruise - Elaphite Islands

The Elaphite islands lie just to the north of Dubrovnik not far from the coast. A relaxed boat trip visits all three inhabited islands in one day, allowing you to experience the laid-back pace of island life. Enjoy the beautiful scenery of Kolocep, Lopud and Sipan and don’t miss the opportunity to swim on Lopud’s famous sandy beach of Sunj. Explore the beautiful churches and discover the fading grandeur of Sipan’s once-opulent mansions and summer residences.


Make sure you....

  • Visit the cloisters of the Franciscan and Domenican Monasteries, which remain places of serenity, and shaded havens from the bustling streets.
  • Don’t miss the Baroque Cathedral and treasury home to such gems as the head of St. Blaise and a hand of John the Baptist.
  • Stop for a refreshing drink of freshly squeezed lemonade in one of the attractive squares.
  • Pass through Luza Square where you will see one of Dubrovnik’s finest buildings, the Sponza Palace, a blend of Venetian Gothic and late Renaissance architecture. Today it houses the Memorial

Room of the Dubrovnik Defenders, a moving reminder of the young lives that were lost during the siege of Dubrovnik in 1991 and 1992.

Don't just take our word for it...

"We have travelled all over the world and I can safely say that this holiday was one of the best - full of new experiences including a trip in a hot air balloon, visiting underground cities, ancient cave dwellings with amazing frescoes and fabulous landscapes. It was fun and exciting. For the first 2 days of tours in Cappadocia we went with the local representative, who were excellent and our guide, Mustafa Sahin was outstanding. Thank you again for a brilliant trip and we will recommend your company. We may be interested in Croatia next year.

Yours sincerely,"
