How Far from?
Dubrovnik is Croatia’s most popular tourist destination, and is therefore often mistaken for the capital. Despite only having a population of 50,000, during the summer months this increases as holidaymakers arrive in droves attracted by the warm weather, beautiful scenery and low prices.

Some of the damage caused by the Siege of Dubrovnik in the 90s is still being repaired today, however there are still plenty of historical buildings to be seen. In fact, Dubrovnik is classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Many visitors spend time on the island of Lokrum, which is situated in the bay of Dubrovnik. The island is covered in woods and is believed to be the place where Richard Lionheart landed when he became shipwrecked in 1192. There is a botanical garden, monastery, and a naturist beach for the more adventurous on Lokrum.

Dubrovnik, also called the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ is also a good place to start from if exploring the surrounding areas, including Bosnia and Herzegovina which is only a 30 minute drive away.
