About Dubrovnik

The city of Dubrovnik is situated in the very south of the Republic of Croatia. Dubrovnik is rich in cultural and historical monuments and is included in UNESCO World Heritage List. Dubrovnik Summer Festival is held annually here, and the city is also the venue for scientific, scholarly and literary conferences and world tourist congresses. The most recognizable feature which defines the History of Dubrovnik and gives it its characteristic is its intact city walls which run uninterrupted for 1940 meters encircling the city. This complex structure, one of the most beautiful and strongest fort systems in the Europe is the main attraction to the city's visitors.

The geographical position of the area is typical of the classic Mediterranean or 'etesian' climate with mild and damp winters, and hot dry summers at quite low air humidity. The average air temperature is 17°C and the summer sea temperature is 21°C approx. A maximum variation of 4°C is very beneficial to the nervous system and general health. There are many sunny days during the winter months. The gentle Maestral - the messenger of lovely weather, refreshes the average summer temperature of 25°C whereas during the cooler months, the Bura and Jugo winds prevail.

There are many picturesque islands near Dubrovnik. One of them is National park Mljet. Mljet is island located west from the Dubrovnik. The Mljet National Park covers the western part of this island, considered by many to be the most beautiful island on the Adriatic. This park is significant because of the two deep gulfs, called lakes because of their narrow connection to the open sea, and its dense, diverse Mediterranean vegetation. Dubrovnik is a place of gastronomic delight open air living, Mediterranean style, is a complemented by rich and varied gastronomic offer. The natural flavor of the sea and of the many Mediterranean delicacies is the same today as it has been over the centuries.

When to visit Dubrovnik?

The magic of Dubrovnik, an imagination etched in stone, has evoked the admiration of visitors since ancient times. The best period to visit Dubrovnik is regarded to be from April to October. Peak temperatures in high season (July, August) can reach 38°C (100°F), and the water surface at that point reaches a comfortable 26°C (79°F). High season presents obvious advantages for visitors looking for fun and excitement, but also for those seeking to explore the cultural life of Dubrovnik and Dubrovnik Region since most cultural events (Dubrovnik Summer Festival) take place during that period. For those wishing to find some nice hidden place of peace and quiet there are many places along Dubrovnik region; magnificent Konavle, the picturesque Pelješac peninsula and the islands Korcula, Mljet and Lopud, to mention just a few.
Spring starting in March can bring some rain showers but the colours of the awakening nature are something we warmly recommend, together with the opportunity to explore many picturesque townships and villages along Dubrovnik Region.
Autumn months, September and October, are ideal for travel if you want to relax and escape the usual tourist crowds. In the off-season beaches are less crowded and the prices lower, however, the weather remains stable and the sea is still enjoyably warm.

Travelling with children

Dubrovnik Region is generally considered to be a very safe environment for children and kids will love the freedom they can have on numerous beaches and along the countryside, just outside towns, townships or villages. Don't hesitate to ask us to give you suggestions and instructions on the best locations.

In Dubrovnik nice pedestrian areas to walk and enjoy with your family can be found in the part of Dubrovnik called Lapad. You can climb on the Petka hill where a magnificent panorama can be enjoyed. Another pleasant walk is starting from the bay of Lapad (Uvala Lapad) along the sea to Hotel Neptun, following the seashore further to Solitudo and back to Uvala Lapad. If you wish to explore the countryside we recommend visiting Konavle valley (not far from Dubrovnik) with numerous small roads through the beautiful countryside. A picturesque park can be found at Konavoski Dvori, where you can also enjoy in the restaurant by the same name that offers local specialties.

If visiting Dubrovnik Old Town with a small baby you will find it more practical to have some accessory that will help you carry your baby because stone floors, steps and struggling with a chair will ruin most of the fun.

The local cuisine

Dubrovnik and the whole region is extremely proud of its rich native cuisine. Many restaurants prepare food in a traditional manner, following old recipes. Don’t miss trying local specialties including:the brodet from eels or frog legs in Neretva River Valley, sea oysters and other mussels in Ston, macaroni pasta from vreteno or cukarini in Korcula, dried seafood dishes on the Elafiti Islands, rozata or kontonjata in Dubrovnik.

Wines

All this delicious food must be accompanied by good beverage to reach its culinary fulfillment. Thanks to the mild Mediterranean climate and the rich and fertile soil, many high quality wines are produced throughout the region. Some good choices include the wines; Dingac, Postup, Grk, Poaip, Rukatac, Malvazija and Plavac. Be sure to try domestic wines along the road as well. Many local producers have road signs - just stop by and enjoy the traditional atmosphere with a nice glass of fine wine.
