Dubrovnik In Your Pocket

Dubrovnik In Your PocketLjubo Gamulin:Dubrovnik
If you ask anyone what springs to mind when they hear the name Croatia, the chances are they'll say „Dubrovnik“, as this beautiful city deservedly basks in worldwide fame. Its main attraction, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the complex of city walls encircling a city of spellbinding beauty. If you visit at the height of summer, it's likely you'll spot a celeb or two in Dubrovnik, but it's equally likely you'll get to know the city itself less well: while the Old Town is heaving with people, you'll miss the vista of the shining paving stones of Stradun, the main street of the Old Town. Once you've done the obligatory tour of the main sights, we highly recommend a visit to the Dubrovnik Art Gallery which organises an international exhibition every year, and the local museums where you'll get to know the history of the city. Visiting the local towns and villages is a must if you spend your holiday in Dubrovnik. Konavle, the hinterland region, offers the chance to get to know the folk customs of the region and its traditional cuisine, and the town of Cavtat is a picturesque gem where you'll find the family home of the artist Vlaho Bukovac (1855-1922), one of Croatia's finest painters. Out to sea, you can visit the green islet of Lokrum just of Dubrovnik's shore, the tiny, sleepy Elafiti islands and, if you can fit it all in, the islands of Mljet and Korčula which are another story altogether.
