Dubrovnik city known as the Pearl of the Adriatic is a place you definitely want to see. The sunsets are prime, the culture is fascinating, and the city views are some of the best in the world The most picturesque of all Croatia‘s ancient cities, historic Dubrovnik is known for its impressive stone wall fortifications, which tower over the Adriatic Sea. Nearby, unspoiled beaches and soaring mountains complete the winning mix. UNESCO has its name all over Dubrovnik’s old town. Much of its Renaissance architecture was wiped out in the 1667 earthquake, but there’s still some parts left – like St Saviour Church. Also worth seeing are the Franciscan Monastery, which houses one of the oldest pharmacies in Europe, and the grand Rector’s Palace. Dubrovnik may be steeped in history, but it’s a city with a very modern side, too. Within its solid walls, medieval houses, ancient palaces and historic churches rub shoulders with chic boutiques, stylish bars, modern hotels and bustling eateries. One of the best things about holidays to Dubrovnik is the beaches to relax on once all your sightseeing is done; there’s a part-sand, part-pebble beach just a short walk from Ploče Gate, called Banje Beach. This is by far the busiest and most popular beach, and it’s a brilliant spot for families.
