Dubrovnik is the perfect city break destination. Within the walls of the old city you will find beautiful streets, museums, churches and cafes just waiting to be explored. Beyond the walls you can enjoy crystal clear waters and a multitude of beautiful islands.
Often described as the pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik is a stunning city. Imposing city walls surround marble streets and baroque buildings that are perfect for exploring. The main pedestrian street, Placa, has a multitude of cafés and shops with narrow cobbled streets branching off up the hillside. The many churches, museums and monasteries featuring finely carved stone recall an eventful history and a vibrant artistic tradition. The city became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979 and survived the civil war in 1991, although received heavy shelling. You can still see the scars of war in the old town - the marble streets are chipped from the shrapnel. Relatively few buildings were completely destroyed; those that were damaged have since been renovated.
Beyond the city are beautiful hotels, wooded peninsulas and the sparkling Adriatic sea strewn with lush islands. This makes Dubrovnik the perfect city break, effortlessly combining culture and nature.
