Dubrovnik is widely known as the wonderful walled city overlooking the Adriatic Sea, designated World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. However, if you love a good holiday of poolside sunbathing sessions accompanied by daily strolls to the beach, do not discard it just yet. Tourists who choose this part of Croatia are lucky enough to combine sightseeing in medieval sites and roaming a charming and pedestrian-only old town with the opportunity to enjoy beautiful beaches, the finest seafood restaurants and the best holiday resorts.
Only 15 kilometres separate Dubrovnik airport from the city centre, and shuttle buses depart from the passenger terminal building approximately every 25 minutes after every plane lands (especially during peak season). For your convenience, you are advised to confirm whether your hotel in Dubrovnik provides complimentary airport transfers for guests.
Often seen as an exclusive luxury destination, many celebrities spend their vacation time here, yet there are accommodation options for every travel budget that will also satisfy the needs of solo travellers, couples, families or those on a business trip. See our recommendations below.
