Dubrovnik, the pearl of the Adriatic, is located in the southernmost part of Croatia. The city is renowned for the beauty of its monuments, its imposing 2km long ramparts and its charming atmosphere. Dubrovnik was in the 14th century an independent republic, rival of Vence. For 400 years of independence, the Republic of Ragusa was a maritime force of more than 500 ships and a very important commercial center in the region.



Despite the various damage suffered during an earthquake in 1667, Dubrovnik has managed to preserve its churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains in Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque style. UNESCO recognized this rich cultural and historical heritage and included the site on the World Heritage List.

The surroundings of Dubrovnik are also very attractive. The Konavle region, the southernmost part of Croatia, is famous for its folk traditions, homemade specialties and picturesque little villages. To the north of Dubrovnik lies the legendary archipelago of the Elaphite Islands and the Peljesac peninsula, an ideal place to taste Ston oysters, mussels and “famous reds” such as Dingac red wine.
