A jewel of the Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik is one of Croatia's most beautiful and popular destinations. This UNESCO World Heritage Site caused George Bernard Shaw to proclaim "those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik and find it." To see why Shaw was so captivated, take the three minute Cable Car ride up Mount Srd and soak in the breathtaking views of the whitewashed holiday apartments in Dubrovnik against the azure blue of the sea. You can enjoy an equally incredible vista from the 2km of the city walls that envelop the historic Old Town. While you're there, be sure to stop in at the Fort of St John, home to both a maritime museum and an aquarium. When you stay in a Dubrovnik apartment in the Old Town, you'll be transported back to the glory days of the 15th and 16th century when it was the capital of the Republic of Ragusa.
Within Dubrovnik's Old Town you'll find a plethora of tourist attractions, from Roland's Column and the Bell Tower to Sponza Palace and famous Big Onofrio's Fountain. The streets of the Old Town are a medieval patchwork that can be a challenge to navigate. Look for the signs that tell you what shops and services can be found in which direction. A map from the tourist info office will help you orientate yourself from your holiday apartment in Dubrovnik.
After a full day of sightseeing, nothing beats the beach around Lapad Bay. The Lapad neighbourhood straddles the peninsula along Gruz Bay with a mix of resorts, residential areas and holiday apartments in Dubrovnik. It has the best beach in the city according to locals. Slightly off the beaten path, you'll find fewer tourists here and some of the best eateries around. Choose Dubrovnik apartments in this area if you'd like a more low key environment.
While staying in a holiday apartment in Dubrovnik, be sure to enjoy the beautiful Adriatic Sea and the countless islands off the Croatian coast. Take a boat to the millionaires' playground that is Cavtat. If all that sea air has worked up an appetite, head to Stradun and feast on the freshest of local seafood. If you choose self-catering Dubrovnik apartment, you can also take advantage of the gorgeous produce on offer at the farmer's market held daily on the seaside in Gruz. Not only will you save money on dining out, you'll get a true taste of Dubrovnik life by shopping amongst the locals.
