Set dramatically against the soothing blue waters of the Adriatic, the walled city of Dubrovnik enjoys a prime location towards the south of the Croatian coast, in Dalmatia. Commonly referred to as ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’, Dubrovnik is Croatia’s most prized possession with its rich history and well-preserved architecture. It is not only one of the most beautiful towns in the Mediterranean but also a sociopolitical and cultural hub. The city walls that trail Dubrovnik are an intriguing piece of ancient architecture. These white-stone walls have beautifully endured the tests of time and are seasoned with an intricate mesh of towers, forts and casemates that instill a medieval aura to Dubrovnik. Tourists claim to have seen the city in an entirely different splendor from atop these walls, which are one of the most frequently visited attractions of the region. The Peljesac peninsula is the proverbial jewel in Dubrovnik’s crown. It is studded with olive and vine groves and houses the splendid little town of Ston that seems to have emerged directly out of a history book. A brief ferry ride from the sublime coastline will take you to a myriad of islands scattered all around the horizon. The most appealing among these, the Korcula Island, is a microcosm of Croatia, blended beautifully within a limited area. Here, one can gratifyingly connect to nature with serene beaches, extensive olive groves and abundant greenery.
