Dubrovnik, the pearl of the Adriatic
Dubrovnik is one of the world’s most stunning cultural jewels. Clinging to a rock, encased by a girdle of ramparts and lapped by a turquoise sea, Croatia’s famous town is fully worthy of its title “pearl of the Adriatic”. Over one thousand years old, this stone oasis first appeals by its architectural harmony. Yet Dubrovnik is far from frozen in the past. In summertime, it is particularly lively and dotted with terraces from which the visitor can observe the unending fresco of life in the city.
