The Dubrovnik Riviera is a popular tourist destination for a variety of reasons. In addition to being a hotspot for summer holidays, the area draws travellers, nature lovers and history buffs throughout the year. The city itself, the most visited destination in Croatia, has been the region’s cultural capital for many centuries and offers an enchanting holiday experience with unparalleled views of historical buildings and palaces, beautiful beaches, and secluded bays.
Dubrovnik Old Town
A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Dubrovnik Old Town is the single most popular tourist destination in the country. The old city is steeped in history with a variety of old Renaissance, Baroque and Gothic churches, palaces and monasteries, all well preserved and within walking distance of each other inside the monumental city walls. The walls themselves offer spectacular views of Dubrovnik, the Adriatic and the nearby islands and are considered the city’s top must-see attraction.
Day trips from Dubrovnik
The Dubrovnik Riviera stretches from the Neretva Delta to Cape Oštro, the southernmost tip of mainland Croatia, and offers a number of sights and tourist attractions beside Dubrovnik that are easy to reach from the city. Places like Cavtat and Trsteno offer an abundance of lush vegetation, beautiful old palaces, gardens, villas and monuments, while the Elaphiti Islands, Mljet and Korčula contribute their own share of dense Mediterranean vegetation and long historical heritage.
