The pearl of Adriatic sea

Dubrovnik is a beautiful city, the true pearl of Croatia visited every year by hundreds of thousands of tourists. What was and still is the ancient Ragusa, has become part of the World Heritage as a site preserved by UNESCO.

The ancient city is protected by gigantic stone ramparts of the sixteenth century, rich in optimally preserved historic monuments, from the Baroque church of San Biagio to the Renaissance Palazzo Sponza, including the Gothic-style Rector's Palace which houses the Museum of History, despite the bombings of the last war.

The city is a renowned beach destination with an alternation of coves and beaches, including the mythical Banje beach. To enjoy a view from above, walk on the ramparts that offer a view of the sea and the mountain and allow you to identify the monuments of the city. Among the highlights are the Maritime Museum, the Aquarium of the Biological Institute, the Ethnographic Museum, the Cathedral and the Franciscan and Dominican monasteries. You can also plan a visit to the Trsteno Arboretum, 20 km from Dubrovnik.
