Dubrovnik - Pearl of the Adriatic

 

Dubrovnik is a city on the Dalmatian Coast, in Croatia. Dubrovnik is an important destination on the Adriatic coast. Visit the old town of Dubrovnik, who joined the World Heritage of UNESCO and has become an objective worth seeing by thousands of tourists.  

Dubrovnik International Airport (DBV) is located in Cilipi, 20 km from Dubrovnik, near the town. You can use a connection through Zagreb or Frankfurt to get to this location, or fly directly during summer season. Journey time from the airport to the city center is about 30 minutes.

Places worth visiting:

  • The Old Town - Great Fountain of Onofrio, from which drinking water flows through 16 ornamental masks.
  • The fortress Walls - the same ticket for the Fortress Walls gives you access to Fort Lovrjenac
  • Franciscan Monastery Complex – where it is the oldest pharmacy in Europe and this pharmacy works since 1317.
  • Luza Square – where it is the Rolando's Column (Orlando), being located right in the middle of the market. Behind the column is the Church of St. Blaise, the patron Saint of Dubrovnik. The church was built between 1705-1717 by the architect and Venetian sculptor, Marino Gropelli.
  • Rectors Palace - houses the Museum of Dubrovnik and is located in front of the Cathedral of Dubrovnik.
