Dubrovnik

Lokrum Island

 (+385-20) 31 17 38     11 Apr 2018

You don’t have to travel far to experience the tranquillity of island life: The island of Lokrum is a mere 15 minute boat cruise. It’s one of the best spots for a swim. The island’s shores are rocky, but the peace and the racket of crickets are something else, there’s a tiny saltwater lake which is perfect for kids, and there’s a naturist beach to the east of the jetty. Thick pine forests have been complemented by cultivated gardens first begun by Benedictine monks - the monastery here was founded in the 11th century, apparently by grateful citizens after being spared from a great fire in Dubrovnik. Austrian Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian Joseph built a summer house and formal gardens here, and a botanical garden was founded in 1959 – Lokrum is now a Nature Reserve. Lokrum’s hills are topped by a star shaped fort built by the French in 1806, from which you have great views.

The Island is beautiful with spectacular views and tracks.Locate a quiet spot and just chill out. It was exciting to hike up to the fort. The trails were a little bit rough. some were closed with very little observed.More Photos: http://www.worldfortravel.com/2013/06/23/island-of-lokrum-croatia/
