Dubrovnik Holidays: an Overview

Visitors have long been enchanted by the beautiful medieval city of Dubrovnik, recently awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Dubrovnik has a remarkable history: an independent, merchant republic for 700 years until it was occupied by Napoleon, the city grew immensely wealthy through trade with Turkey and India in the East and had representatives as far afield as Africa. Modern Dubrovnik is not only beautiful, but chic and cosmopolitan with a lively nightlife.

Narrow cobbled alleys line the main pedestrian street, the Stradun, and evenings are spent listening to live bands and free opera recitals, sipping drinks in local bars, or eating in restaurants lining the harbour.

The walls that surround the city form an ideal walking tour, with cosy cafes perched precariously on the rocks, and this is the ideal spot from which to see the sun setting over the nearby Elaphiti Islands.
