The Dubrovnik Riviera/Islands region
Dubrovnik is the most well known destination of the Dalmatian Riviera with its famous medieval walled town, museums, churches, art galleries, restaurants and bars.
Lokrum island, a UNESCO protected site, which houses the ruins of a former monastery and fort, plus a restaurant and plenty of secluded beaches.
Elafiti islands are really a perfect getaway from city crowds. The most popular islands are Kolocep, Lopud and Šipan and are also the only inhabited islands.
Mljet Island is famous for its natural beauty and the west part is a National park. The park is definitely worth a trip.
Peljesac Peninsula is well known for its wines. The whole peninsula is covered with dense evergreen and Mediterranean vegetation. On your way, do not miss to stop at Ston, famous for its shellfish restaurants -the best in the region- which offer oysters as a specialty.
Dubrovnik is a remarkably well-preserved example of a late-medieval walled city, with a regular street layout. Among the outstanding medieval, Renaissance and Baroque monuments within the magnificent fortifications and the monumental gates to the city are the Town Hall (now the Rector's Palace), dating from the 11th century; the Franciscan Monastery (completed in the 14th century, but now largely Baroque in appearance) with its imposing church; the extensive Dominican Monastery; the cathedral (rebuilt after the 1667 earthquake); the customs house (Sponza), the eclectic appearance of which reveals the fact that it is the work of several hands over many years; and a number of other Baroque churches, such as that of St Blaise (patron saint of the city).
The island of Lokrum lies to the south-east of Dubrovnik, some 500 m from the coast. In 1023 it became a Benedictine abbey, the first of several in the Republic of Dubrovnik. It was continually enlarged in succeeding centuries, passing to the Congregation of St Justina of Padua in the late 15th century, when a new monastery was built in Gothic-Renaissance style to the south of the ruins of the Benedictine establishment. During their occupation of the island in the early 19th century the French began work on the construction of the Fort Royal Fortress, which was completed by the Austrians in the 1830s. In 1859 Archduke Maximilian of Austria (later Emperor of Mexico) bought the island with the intention of building a villa in classical style on the ruins of the Benedictine abbey, but only a small part of this work was completed
Even famous persons like Dubrovnik too; Steven Spielberg comes to Dubrovnik every year, thrilled with the town where he manages to have his privacy, the princess Carolina of Monaco with her family and many other members of the jet set. The only problem in Dubrovnik, that seems to be irresolvable, is the lack of parking spaces, so we can say that finding a parking spot in Dubrovnik is equal to winning the lottery.
