Dubrovnik is a true gem of the Mediterranean and a place that is adored among tourists! They have every reason for the admiration, since it’s a place of rich culture and history. Monumental walls are almost two kilometers long, and in the Republic of Dubrovnik, some of the earliest documents about maritime law in the World and oldest European law on maritime insurance were created. The oldest European pharmacy that is continuously operational is also located here! In the base of Srd mountain, from where the magnificent view on the city rises, Dubrovnik will always make you come back and enjoy in its charms.
If you decide to go for a swim, there is enough place for everyone! Banje, Lapad, St. Jacob and numerous other places like Konavle, Zupa and Cavtat, will relax you with its beautiful beaches and prepare you for an exciting nightlife. If you just want to stroll through the stone streets and stairs, the most beautiful are definitely the ones next to the Church of St. Ignatius which are irresistibly similar to Piazza di Spagna in Rome. Or you can party outside or inside the city walls, in lounge bars, taverns or many coffee places in narrow streets, which are connected like rooms in your own apartment. Even the Lazareti, the medieval quarantine, are a place where you can party till the morning. But at the end of the morning after you’ve partied all night long, there isn’t a thing in the world you would change for you comfortable bed! At least until the new party begins 🙂
