A city for culture lovers and sun worshippers
Dubrovnik in southern Croatia is referred to as the “Pearl of the Adriatic” for good reason. Ideally suited for family and beach holidays, this city on the Dalmatian coast is also a “must-see” for history and culture buffs.
With year-round warm weather and little rainfall, Dubrovnik is a choice place for both sun worshippers and water sports lovers. Considered one of the nicest diving regions of the Adriatic, the underwater world around Dubrovnik is inhabited by marine animals rarely seen further north. But excursions on land are no less thrilling - on foot, by car or bicycle.
