Dubrovnik is one of the world’s top destinations for romantic weddings, honeymoons and short romantic breaks. Theold city’s sights, sounds, hospitality and rich tourist offerings put it on many couples’ dream wedding wish list, while its proximity to other historic and natural landmarks in the region makes Dubrovnik an excellent choice for an extended romantic break after the special day itself.
Dubrovnik’s ancient forts and buildings set against the backdrop of the Adriatic give the city a special romantic charm, one that makes it a perfect setting for wedding ceremonies and celebrations. Dubrovnik offers a varied range of options for wedding arrangements, from churches, palaces and forts to yachts and sail ships with views of the Old Town and the nearby islands.
The Baroque church of Saint Blasius, Sponza Palace and Rector’s Palace, Revelin Fortress, Pile Gate, St. John’s Fort and Fort Lovrijenac are some of the most popular wedding locations in the Old Town, but couples looking for spectacular views on their wedding day can also opt for the city’s many beaches and beachfront terraces, as well as the lush green ambience of the islands in the Dubrovnik archipelago.
Dubrovnik is one of the most romantic cities in the world. It offers a variety of things to do and ancient corners to explore to newlyweds and, between the long romantic walks, night swims and visits to the local night bars and restaurants, couples can enjoy the city’s vibrant cultural life, with a colourful variety of festivals and events taking place throughout the year.
The city’s geographical location makes it a great place for honeymoons, as the surrounding area offers many romantic destinations and eye-catching views for day trips and sailing excursions. Dubrovnik ferries and catamarans take visitors to the islands of Lokrum, Mljet and Korčula, the Elaphiti archipelago and other stunning destinations, while a drive along the coast to the north reveals stunning vistas on the way to the Pelješac peninsula and the cities of Makarska and Split. A trip to the south of Dubrovnik takes couples to Cavtat and the Bay of Kotor, a fjord-like winding bay on the coast of Montenegro known for its unearthly landscape.
