This is Dubrovnik – a city that was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979. Dubrovnik is a good starting point if you decide to explore the southern part of Croatia and the whole Balkans at the same time. The city is made for exploring the old town, beaches, boat trips, cycling or walking. In addition, it offers a wide range of accommodation and thus also the opportunity to make trips to the surrounding area, e.g. to the island of Korčula, to Bosnia and Herzegovina or Montenegro.
