Why go to Dubrovnik

Don’t be surprised if words fail you when you arrive in Dubrovnik, the gleaming “Pearl of the Adriatic”. From any angle it’s beautiful – rusty orange rooftops snuggle up to dense woodland, the limestone paving of the Stradun is slick and sparkly under evening lights, and from the city walls you can gaze out over the Adriatic dancing blue and green below.

A good place to start a Dubrovnik holiday is in the old town, where you can dip in and out of chic shops, cafes and bars from its main stretch, the Stradun, before climbing to the top of its ancient walls to look out at the sprawling rooftops below. A great spot to cool down in summer is inside the city’s magnificent cathedral, and keep your eyes peeled for the tucked-away Buza bars through the old town walls too, where you can enjoy a drink on the rocks overlooking the sea and watch brave locals and tourists diving in.

Sitting at the edge of the Adriatic Sea, in southern Croatia, centuries-old Dubrovnik allows you to combine a beach and a city break. Complement a morning sightseeing with an afternoon spent on the pebbly Banje Beach, the closest beach to the old town, or head out to the Lapad peninsular for sandy and pebbly stretches.
