Situated in the southern corner of the country and known originally as Ragusa, picturesque Dubrovnik is one of (if not) the most beautiful cities in Croatia.
Also known as “The Pearl of the Adriatic”, Dubrovnik with its matchless setting, comfortable climate, historic and cultural heritage, beautiful environment and beaches, is deservedly popular with the tourists.
The city-wall bounding the historic centre is in places 25 metres high, and with its 15 towers, 5 bastions and two corner-fortifications, it made the city impregnable.
The agglomeration of monuments in the historic centre has remained unscathed and now appears on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The city’s wide selection of museums, cultural programmes and festivals, make it South-Dalmatia’s artistic and cultural centre.
Its main programme is the Dubrovnik Summer Festival; lasting from mid-July to the end of August, it features international groups and artists.
Its restaurants and intimate cafés are also able to satisfy the requirements of the most demanding of customers.
Aside from sightseeing and relaxing on Croatia’s beautiful beaches, you can also experience the great national cuisine in one of the fine Croatian restaurants available in places such as Dubrovnik.
