What to do while in Dubrovnik?
Forget stressful everyday life, explore, rest, bathe, walk, read, listen to music, idle…
With a pleasant Mediterranean climate, 260 sunny days per year and protected nature, Dubrovnik offers you the opportunity to explore historical sites, museums and galleries, and to learn about the wisdom of our ancestors. Enhance your holiday with a tour of the city and its surroundings, tasting exquisite gastronomic specialties or attending sports events that will invigorate both your body and soul.
The mild climate, fortunately, enables sailing all the year round, so we recommend the Elafite Islands cruise where you can explore wooded untouched oases, and where the nature lovers can enjoy picturesque villages on the Islands of Koločep, Lopud and Šipan and the island life so unlike that in the environment where you come from.
Firstly, Take a tour of Ston, visit the salt works, taste the oysters of Mali Ston Bay and explore the wine route on the Pelješac Peninsula. While on Pelješac, take a ferry from Orebić and you will reach the Island of Korčula in no time. The medieval city of Korčula is encircled with city walls. With a neat layout and rows of gothic and renaissance buildings, Korčula is the native city of Marco Polo. The city boasts the traditional knightly dances moreška,
Secondly, visit the most beautiful parts of the Dubrovnik Riviera include Cavtat and Konavle. Among many reasons why one should visit this area are the unique folk costumes, good wines, smoked ham, cheese kept in oil and the story of silk.
If you are a lover of hiking, the hills of Konavle are the right choice. At the hundred-year old mill on the River Ljuta housing the Konavoski Dvori Restaurant you may also taste freshwater fish. A jeep safari and horseback riding are only some aspects of the wide-ranging tourist services offered in Konavle.
Off the Beaten Path journey
Thirdly, and most importantly, if you enjoy eating – and even picking – mandarins, birds watching and archaeology, the valley of the River Neretva – the biggest one in the region – is the right place for you.
The Photo safari is a unique tourist experience in which guests are driven by indigenous Neretva vessels (small wooden boats from which are some even a 100 years old). Discover the allure of one of the last swamps on the European continent, its flora and fauna, the diversity of wild birds and the traditional lifestyle of the Neretva people.
End up at a beautiful local restaurant overlooking the water for Traditional Dalmatian local dishes and wine. Board the boats to return to Opuzen. Walk around collared streets of the small town Opuzen and feal the Zen energy in the air. You may want to venture out to one of the friendly bars around the town square to meet the locals over a beer or two.
Just 10 minutes of driving away from the Neretva river delta, you’ll find a beautiful landscape of 7 Baćina lakes.
These lakes are located near the city of Ploce and they are the unique place of intact nature. We organize Bacina lakes kayaking tour there and every guest we had on the tour was simply stunned by the Bacina lakes. The good thing about the lakes is that they are not crowded even during the high season.
Moreover, make sure to visit the Island of Mljet, mentioned in the legends of Odysseus, St Paul, the Benedictines and the Mediterranean monk seal. With two unique seawater lakes surrounded by pine woods that reach the shore creating an atmosphere of untouched nature, the Mljet National Park is frequented by tourists the whole year round. Rent a bicycle and cycle to the woods and lake shore, or merely take a walk, smell pinewood and take a boat to the Isle of St Mary – situated in the middle of the Large Lake – and explore the 12th century Benedictine Monastery and Church.
In conclusion, after the excursions to its surroundings, the lovely beaches of Dubrovnik and crystal clear sea are waiting for you. Top quality hotels, superb wellness centers and more than a thousand different events throughout the year were created precisely for you and your memorable stay!
