Named ‘The Pearl of the Adriatic’ by writer George Bernard Shaw, the historic city of Dubrovnik is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most beautiful and famous cities in the world. The city’s origins date back to the 7th century but it is best known for its high, sea-facing medieval walls and old town, featuring a mix of Renaissance and Baroque architecture, marble-paved streets and vibrant social scene.
Since beauty of the region goes beyond the walled old city, guests can also take various day trips or half-day excursions to explore the rich cultural heritage of other towns in the region, boat trips to nearby islands or neighboring countries such as Montenegro and Bosnia and Hercegovina, all organised and tailored to suit individual preferences.
