Dubrovnik

Along the Dalmation Coast, the city of Dubrovnik has become famous for its pedestrian-only Old Town surrounded by fortress walls, and its historical heft has earned it World Heritage Site status.
Discover out-of-the-way places like River Rafting & Tubing and Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Get some historical perspective at Gradske Zidine and Cavtat Cemetery. There's lots more to do: get great views at Minceta Fortress, step off the mainland to explore Island of Lokrum, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and contemplate the long history of Fort Lovrijenac.
