The Dubrovnik Riviera/Islands region
Dubrovnik is a Croatian city on the Adriatic Sea coast in the extreme south of Dalmatia, positioned at the terminal end of the Isthmus of Dubrovnik. It is one of the most prominent tourist destinations on the Adriatic, a seaport and the centre of Dubrovnik-Neretva county. Its population is around 45 thousand. In 1979, the city of Dubrovnik joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
The climate along the Dubrovnik Region is a typical Mediterranean one, with mild, rainy winters and hot and dry summers. Typically, in July and August daytime maximum temperatures reach 29 °C, and at night drop to around 21 °C. More comfortable, perhaps, is the climate in Spring and Autumn when maximum temperatures are typically between 20 °C and 28 °C.
The walls are the main attraction in Dubrovnik and visitors can enjoy in splendid views from the guard’s walkway onto the city and the Mediterranean Sea and feel an interesting history. The Pile gate is the main entrance to the fortified old city with an interesting Gothic door between the inner and outer wall.
The Minceta tower is the most visited feature of the defense structures designed by Michelozzo Michelozzi in 1461 and completed by Juraj Dalmatinac later. The Ploce Gate is near the small port. The fort of St. John holds a Maritime Museum as well as an Aquarium.
One of the best - known monuments in the city is the Big Fountain of Onofrio, built by a Neapolitan architect, Onofrio de la Cava, who built the city water supply system. Visit the church of St Saviour. The facade of the church is an example of Venetian-Dalmatian Renaissance architecture.
There is a Franciscan Monastery, which is definitely worth visiting, so as its old pharmacy and the museum and the library. The Stradún, the main street of Dubrovnik goes from east to west between two of the city gates. Enjoy the bars and cafés along it, it is a meeting place in the city. The Square of the Loggia is the economic and political heart of Dubrovnik and it is surrounded by important buildings.
The Orlando’s Column was built by Antonio Ragusino in 1418 and it is where people tend to meet in Dubrovnik. Sponza Pallace is situated on the left of the square. It is well- known for its Renaissance loggia on the ground floor as well as beautiful Venetian Gothic three-mullioned window on the first floor.
The Church of St. Blaise was rebuilt in the early years of the 18th century following the 17th century design and contains many examples of Baroque art as for example the statue of St. Blaise on the altar. Rector’s Palace used to be the center of the Republic of Ragusa, housing the Upper Council.
The palace holds the museum of Dubrovnik. Cathedral and Treasury are worth visiting. The Cathedral was built after the earthquake in 1667, by two Roman architects, Andrea Buffalini and Paolo Andreotti. The paintings in the church are made by Dalmatian and Italian artists from the 16th – 18th century, with an Assumption by Tizian, which dominates the main altar.
The Cathedral Treasury is famous for its collection of about 200 reliquaries and sacred objects in gold. The Dominican monastery was built from 1315 onwards and the city walls had to be expanded for this purpose. Visit the Dominican Museum with a collection of paintings from the “Dubrovnik school”.

Right in the old city in prettiest of roads. Romantically presented, a really pleasant place to be in. Fantastic shower room. Not suitable for people who have problems with steps or stairs (loads of steps to get there and no handrail up top flight of stairs). Fabulous kitchen but would have liked a few basic items such as kettle, cafetiere, sieve, colander etc, especially as there was such a good cooker and fridge. In spite of this, would still definitely stay there again because of the great location and the wonderful ambience of the place.

"Lovely house within the Old City"
We had a lovely stay here - the house was spotless and had everything we could have possibly required.
It is up a lot of steps - but so is most of Dubrovnik's old town!
