Where is Dubrovnik?

Who is Dubrovnik suitable for?
Holidays to Dubrovnik are especially suitable for families and couples. Sun worshippers will be happy with the warm climate and sailors will enjoy the glorious sea. History buffs will find plenty to occupy their curiosity and there's enough to do for those into water sports.
What are the beaches like in Dubrovnik?
The beaches in Dubrovnik are pebbly, which ensures some of the clearest waters in Europe and are a favourite of scuba-divers. There are over 100 Blue Flag awarded beaches in Croatia and the sea is a warm 27°C in summer. Some nearby islands offer sandy beaches and are often visited by naturists.
Culture & History in Dubrovnik
Originating in the 7th century, this city grew in importance due to its port and the huge city walls were built to protect it. No holiday to Dubrovnik is complete without a walk around these walls and along the stone-paved main street, taking in the architectural delights including churches and palaces. Enjoy the summer festival in July and August or take in a concert in the Old Town after a day visiting museums, galleries and swimming.
