- location_on Dubrovnik, South Dalmatia, Croatia
Dubrovnik is probably the most famous city in Croatia, and the only city on the Adriatic Sea which, in its uniqueness and beauty, can be compared to Venice. Located in the southern part of Dalmatia, this pearl of the Adriatic has the status of a world Heritage of Humanity site protected by UNESCO. Originally founded on a rocky island and later connected to the mainland by filling in a thin arm of the sea. The historic centre of this walled city is divided in half by a long paved avenue that begins near the port, along which the more significant buildings of the city stand. This unique and spectacular white-stone city, with its monuments and historical buildings, is encrusted by medieval walls, which can be walked entirely in approximately an hour’s time. During the summer Dubrovnik hosts the renowned festival of theatre and culture. The beaches of Dubrovnik are renowned almost as much as the city itself. Copacabana is quite lively and is the largest beach of the city. It has a view of the bridge and the islet of Daksa. Banje beach is also well-known, and is positioned where you can enjoy the view of the walls of the old city. Opposite the city of Dubrovnik is the island of Lokrum, one of the islands of the archipelago of the Elaphiti Islands, uninhabited and home to a luxurious summer residence of the Habsburgs, surrounded by a botanical park inserted in the natural reserve of the island. In addition to the island of Lokrum, from Dubrovnik, you can reach the other islands of the Elaphiti archipelago and the beautiful islands of southern Dalmatia. Brač, Hvar, Korčula, the island of Mljet, the National Park Mljet in the western part and the wonderful Lastovo, which is a nature park, is all easily accessed from Dubrovnik. By renting one of the boats our charter offers in the marina of Dubrovnik you may embark on a voyage more fascinating and incredible than anything in the world. Visit the coast so charming and beautiful, even the mythical Ulysses wasn’t able to resist.
