Having visited Dubrovnik, the Irish writer George Bernard Shaw wrote: "Those who search for paradise on earth should come and see Dubrovnik".
Unique for its impressive medieval forts, churches, monuments and palaces, Dubrovnik is often called the pearl of the Adriatic. More than a thousand-year old history of Dubrovnik made it a cultural centre of Europe. History is present in the entire city, which is both a museum and a picturesque stage where cultural heritage and contemporary life meet. In 1979 the City was included in UNESCO World Heritage Site list.
Dubrovnik as an excellent choice for those searching for challenge and active holiday. Entertainment, recreation and sports are available all the year round. Enjoy a jeep safari, horseback riding, canoe safari, kayaking, sailing to the Elafite Islands and a visit to the national park on the Island of Mljet. Do not miss the Island of Lokrum, located about 700 metres away from Dubrovnik, also called the island of love. Discover the remains of the 12th century Benedictine Monastery and a walking path to Fort Royal, enjoy a promenade surrounded by peacocks, or sunbathe on the nudist beach.
