The best of both worlds
The area of Dubrovnik delivers two holidays in one. Dubrovnik Old Town offers a picturesque city break while peaceful Cavtat is perfect for a relaxing holiday in the sun. And there are plenty of pretty islands to hop around, too – Mljet gives you lush green forests and two saltwater lakes to hike around.
Dubrovnik lies close to the southern borders of Croatia. That means you’ll be in day-trip distance of Montenegro. It’s a stunning country with five national parks and some chic beach resorts. You could just as easily pop across the border to Bosnia & Herzegovina to see stunning Ottoman palaces and deep canyons.
Lord Byron described Dubrovnik Old Town as ‘the pearl of the Adriatic’, and it’s easy to see why. It’s a gem of a city, with terracotta rooftops, medieval walls, cobbled alleyways and a glistening waterfront. Plus there’s no shortage of stylish boutiques, bar and restaurants, especially down on the harbour.
