Dubrovnik: Croatia’s Adriatic jewel suspended in time

In this video, we head to stunning Dubrovnik, southern Croatia’s World Heritage Site city, situated on the shimmering waters of the Adriatic Sea.

Dating back to the seventh century, when it was known as Ragusa, walled, sea-swept Dubrovnik is essentially a medieval town that was reshaped by Baroque planners after the earthquake of 1667.

Today, its set-piece churches and public buildings blend seamlessly with its green-shuttered stone houses, lending it the air of a city seemingly untouched by the 21st century. And despite its more turbulent recent past, Dubrovnik maintains its perennial appeal for visitors, who never fail to fall under its spell.

Should you pass this way, your itinerary of sights and experiences should include the following:

  • Roaming Dubrovnik’s city walls and forts
  • Visiting Lokrum island
  • Trekking up or riding the cable car to the top of Mount Srđ
  • Viewing the War Photo Limited gallery
  • Touring the Rector’s Palace
  • Exploring Lapad Bay
