Dubrovnik is one of the most important holiday resorts of Croatia, being located on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. The Summer Festival starts on July 10 and lasts for 45 days, until August 25. Other smaller festivals are hosted often close to the most important venues of the city, such as Lokrum Island. Most events take place during summer, especially in August.
The Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and many elements of Renaissance architecture can still be seen, even if the 1677 earthquake devastated most of the city. Some important monuments in Dubrovnik are the Rector’s Palace, the St. Savior Church and St Blaise’s Church. Another important element of the past are the walls of the city, which have a length of more than 2 kilometers. Of course, one should not miss the beaches while visiting Dubrovnik.
The easiest way to reach Dubrovnik from the airport is by taking the shuttle bus that leaves from outside the main terminal. Private shuttle buses are also available for larger groups.
