Adriatic adventures from holiday homes in Dubrovnik, Croatia

Visitors who choose Dubrovnik holiday homes will be well rewarded. This stunning Croatian city really is a unique place. It is an antique walled city by the sea, in the province of Dalmatia. But, there are no spots on this grand old lady – the old town in entirety is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its wealth of history and culture. It’s the southernmost city in the country and is packed with things to see and do delighting tourists from all over the world who come to stay in Dubrovnik holiday accommodation.

Getting acquainted with Dubrovnik

The city centre dates back to the 13th Century and very little has changed since it was originally built. Dominating and intimidating ramparts surround the centre and it is a treat to walk along any of its 16kms length.

Not far from centrally located Dubrovnik holiday apartments is the Stradun Promenade where a multitude of street cafes have earned the locale the name of ‘Salon Street’ as the atmosphere is like a warm, inviting living room.

Fantastic sites that can’t be missed include the magnificent Onofrio Fountain, the Orlando Column, and the Franciscan Monastery. The old pharmacy has been in continuous operation since 1301 and is a fascinating journey through the history of medicine. Another great trip is the cable car up Srdj Mountain.

Summer is the perfect time to book Dubrovnik holiday homes. The city ignites into a flurry of music, dancing, and film as the Summer Festival arrives and permeates the streets with even more cultural offerings.

Dubrovnik by the sea

This part of the Dalmatian coast is known as the Dubrovnik Riviera and it is fully deserving of the name. The aspect is stunning with beaches that are pristinely clean. The water is of cool blues and the sands of rich yellows and the view across the bay dotted with little islands. There are beaches for everybody within just a short walk away from Dubrovnik holiday homes - sandy beaches, pebble-laden beaches, naturist beaches, and tranquil little havens. The notable and popular beaches of Banje, Copacabana and Lapad Bay are serviced by beach cafes and bars, adding to the relaxed but lively atmosphere. Swimming, sunbathing, fishing, scuba diving, and cave dives are just a few of the potentially exciting holiday moments on offer.

The Dalmatian Islands that float just off the coast are wondrous locations for a day trip. Elaphite, Mljet, and Lokrum are three of the most popular islands and lay just a short ride away from the beautifully-carved and shaped architecture of Dubrovnik. The natural verdant beauty of the islands is a delightful contrast to the city and its historical centre.

Weather

The best time to stay in Dubrovnik holiday homes is during the summer with lovely weather and average temperatures of 25 degrees Celsius, with water temperatures hovering just a few degrees below this. Winters can be cold, but seeing the rarity of Dubrovnik covered in snow is always an intriguing photo opportunity!

Getting there

There are no direct flights into Croatia from Australia so it means a flight into London and then a connection to Dubrovnik Airport. It is also worth looking at flying into Frankfurt or Budapest rather than the UK and check what cheap flights are on offer from those major airports.
