Dubrovnik

George Bernard Shaw was enchanted by this beautiful city: for him, it was paradise. And he is not only one. Millions of other people also take home happy memories from this "jewel of the Adriatic".

DubrovnikDubrovnik has a remarkable history. An independent, merchant republic for 700 years (abolished by Napoleon in 1806), it traded with Turkey and India in the East (with a consul in Goa, India) and had trade representatives in Africa (Cape Verde Islands). It even had diplomatic relations with the English court in the middle ages. Its status was such that powerful and rich Venice was envious of this Croatian-Slav city.

Dubrovnik is the most southern city in Croatia, and the most practical way to reach the city is to do so by air. Dubrovnik is 200 km far to the south from Omis. The old town was completed in the 13th century and remains virtually unchanged to the present day. If you are visiting in the summer, do not miss the world-renowned Dubrovnik Summer Festival, with music, theatre and dance performances.
