The story of Dubrovnik's more than fifteen century of history is reflected in every part of the City, that although it may sometimes feel like a living museum, you will discover it also has a vibrant present.
A two kilometers long walk-around of medieval walls surrounding it will open up vistas of its hidden small streets, monuments, gardens and terraces - it is perhaps the best way to get a first impression of Dubrovnik. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, Dubrovnik is largely considered to be a cultural destination, offering a rich variety of historical monuments as well as a large number of diverse events and festivals.
But it is also a place for a relaxing holiday, for time spent on the beach, enjoying the clarity of the Adriatic sea, to sit and relax at a cafe, and a time to find that tiny back street restaurant with the best selection of fresh local foods. Excellent ferry and fast boat connections allow You to visit the beautiful Elafiti Islands (Lopud, Sipan, Kolocep) as well as the "Island of Mljet" National Park. If you are planning to visit the surrounding areas (Konavle, Zupa Dubrovacka, Peljesac peninsula, Island of Korcula) or the near neighboring countries (Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina), rent a car is Your best option.
