A jewel of the Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik is one of Croatia’s most beautiful and popular tourist destinations. With a gorgeous Mediterranean climate, 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. If this doesn’t appeal, you can enjoy an equally incredible vista from the 2km of the City Walls – be sure to stop in at the Fort of St John, home to both a maritime museum and an aquarium. 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. After all that sightseeing, cool down with a dip at one of Lapad’s fabulous beaches, or 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 accommodation, you can also take advantage of the gorgeous fresh produce on offer at the market 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.
