Cheap Vacations to Dubrovnik Riviera
Dubrovnik Riviera Overview
The Dubrovnik Riviera is known as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’. This sun-kissed stretch of coastline runs along the southern edge of Croatia, with the historic city of Dubrovnik at its heart. The whole coast is littered with idyllic islands, quaint towns and villages and luscious countryside, as well as beautiful beaches, bays and coves just waiting to be discovered. The laid-back approach to life in this part of the Mediterranean makes the Dubrovnik Riviera a fantastic holiday destination, whether you want to relax on the beach, immerse yourself in culture, or both!
Admire the architecture in Dubrovnik
The city of Dubrovnik is a fascinating place, complete with 16th century fortified walls and a beautiful harbour. This UNESCO World Heritage site is the perfect place for history lovers with lots of churches and museums to explore. Take your time as you stroll through the winding streets of the city and enjoy the wonderful sights, or soak up the sunshine at a pavement café before taking in the next in a long line of incredible sights. The pedestrianised Stradun area is where you’ll find plenty of shops and varied restaurants. In addition, Game of Thrones fans will know that the Old Town is also one of the main filming locations for the hit TV series, with lots of related walking tours available.
Something for everyone
Outside the main city, the Riviera has a diverse range of things to see and do as well as great places to stay. Mlini is a lovely little resort only seven kilometres outside Dubrovnik. This ancient town is beautifully preserved and also offers some of the best beaches and spots to eat and drink. Take a boat trip to Mljet and you can explore the island’s stunning National Park. For diving enthusiasts seeking a unique experience, head to the town of Cavtat with its famous ‘museum on the sea floor’. And if you’re hoping to explore Croatia’s cultural heritage, then a trip to the island of Korcula with its ancient churches and interesting museums is a must.
