Dubrovnik - the Pearl of the Adriatic
Of particular interest are its impressive city walls, which still measure up to six metres in width. This beautiful UNESCO World Heritage site has long been a source of inspiration for novels, TV programmes and films, including the acclaimed novel and TV programme, Game of Thrones, where Dubrovnik featured as the Capital of the Seven Kingdoms. The Old Town of Dubrovnik is a wonderful destination for a city break throughout the year.
Relax and explore Dubrovnik
Enjoy a stroll along the Stradun, the main street in the Old Town, and soak up the bustling atmosphere. The city's baroque buildings, palaces and cathedrals provide a feast for the eyes and contribute to Dubrovnik’s majestic ambience. In summer, the Old Town transforms into the stage for the annual summer festival. The popular festival is the oldest in Croatia and hosts open-air theatre, ballet and opera performances. In the lead up to Christmas, the city is set alight with a sea of twinkling lights. Wonderful festive fragrances enliven the senses, complimented by the dulcet music which fills the streets. What’s more, your Dubrovnik apartment is incredibly accessible due the conveniently located airport and port. It is not only adults who are charmed by this magical city; children are also suitably impressed by the city walls and surrounding moat, which are reminiscent of a fairy tale. The six metre thick walls provide the perfect playground for children to venture through the city, whilst admiring the breathtaking sea views. With a distinctly Mediterranean feel, it is no surprise that the café culture and cuisine in Dubrovnik follow suit, offering relaxed harbour-side coffee spots by day and electric bars and restaurants by night.
