Dubrovnik Travel Guide

Lord Byron was so besotted with Dubrovnik that he proclaimed the city as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’. George Bernard Shaw was also enticed by the city that he said, “Those who seek paradise on Earth should seek it in Dubrovnik”.

The well-known City of Dubrovnik or "Ragusa” is situated on the Adriatic Sea coast on southern part of the Croatian Coast. Dubrovnik is truly a stunning city with its amazing Old Town, which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979. The gleaming marble streets of Dubrovnik are lined with baroque buildings punctuated by beautifully sculpted Renaissance fountains and facades. Beyond the city is a heavenly landscape of beaches, wooded peninsulas and a sea strewn with lush islands.

This dazzling place is worth a visit to believe in what we and others say with your own eyes. Dubrovnik is waiting to be explored!

Did you know that the Dalmatian dog, also known as the Dubrovnik hunter, originally came from the Dalmatian coast? Dalmatia is the coastal region of Croatia from the Kvarner Riviera in the north to Dubrovnik in the south. Dalmatia is named after the Dalmati, an Illyrian tribe who lived in the area around 1200 BC.
