Located on the Dalmatian coast of the Adriatic Sea in the very south of Croatia, Dubrovnik is deservedly known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic”. An important Mediterranean sea power from the 13th century, Dubrovnik has accumulated some impressive Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Even with the damage done by the severe earthquake of 1667 and the more recent armed conflict in the 1990s, it stands proud and gorgeous. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, Dubrovnik has undergone a major restoration programme. With mild winters of 10°C and warm summers of 26°C, there is no bad time to visit Dubrovnik.
Naturally, Croatian is spoken in most homes in Dubrovnik. The people of Dubrovnik, being proud and hospitable, will assist you in any situation, tell you stories of their city and of the sea. Most of the locals talk at least one foreign language.
See and do
The much-beloved Dubrovnik Old Town and its well-preserved city walls are so popular among visitors for a good reason. A walk on the top of the wall is quite an experience, getting up close to the admirable system of turrets and towers, intended to protect the vulnerable city – on the seaward side the walls are quite thin, but on the landward side up to six meters thick. Does the enchanting medieval setting look familiar? If you’re a fan of the Game of Thrones series, you’ve certainly seen it before!
If you are visiting in the summer, do not miss the prizewinning Dubrovnik Summer Festival, with music, theatre and dance performances. This annual event brings you 45 days of cultural event with live plays, concerts, and games.
With such an excellent location on the Adriatic, it's no surprise that fishing, seamanship, and sea cuisine are an essential part of the local culture. Dalmatian beaches rank high with the world's most knowledgeable and experienced mariners. Check out the trendy Ploce beach, overlooking the Old Town, the Saint Tropez-style Banje Beach and the dramatically beautiful beach of Sv. Jakov.
The Cathedral of the Assumption, built on the site of a 7th-century basilica, has had its share of natural disaster in its early times, but has always been rebuilt larger and more impressive, the current baroque building standing since 1713. Rumour has it that one of its restorations was funded by England’s King Richard I the Lionheart as a gift for being saved from a shipwreck on the nearby island of Lokrum. Nowadays you can easily make a short ferry trip from Dubrovnik to visit this lovely island.
