About Dubrovnik

The historic and beautiful town of Dubrovnik has re-emerged as a cosmopolitan destination for travellers looking for something just a little different - medieval charm, Mediterranean sun and laid-back sophistication.

Things to see and do

  • Rector's Palace - A beautiful Renaissance palace housing a fascinating museum and art gallery; it's often used for concerts due to its superb acoustics.
  • Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary - This magnificent cathedral replaced the original which was built with money donated by Richard the Lionheart.
  • Sponza Palace - This is a perfect example of Dubrovnik's unique melding of Gothic and Renaissance architecture. Today it houses the city archives.
  • Fort Lovrijenac - Dubrovnik's instantly recognisable fortress has been defending the city since the 11th-century, though in more recent years it has been used as a theatre.
  • Franciscan Monastery - This beautiful monastery has a stunning baroque church attached, the oldest pharmacy in the world and its own museum.
  • Orofrios Great Fountain - This marvel of engineering was built in the 15th century with an aqueduct to bring fresh water to the city from a spring 20km away. Still a drinking fountain it is a great place to stop and people watch.
  • Take a stroll up and down the Placa Stradun, the city's main thoroughfare, particularly in the early evening when the locals come out to promenade.
  • For the best views of the city, take a walk around the top of the medieval city walls.
  • Enjoy an afternoon on the beach at the Lapad Peninsula, a small wooded area just outside the city that is a popular beauty spot
  • Take a ferry to the island of Lokrum to see the monastery, fort and botanical gardens - and fabulous views of the city on your return.
