Must see and do’s while in Dubrovnik include entering the fortified city with its narrow cobbled stone streets leading off the many small squares and walking the city walls. Visit the Duke’s Palace, and the oldest pharmacy in the South of Europe, browse the centuries-old buildings; visiting the many libraries, churches and monasteries which are accessible by its two town gates; Ploče in the East and Pile to the West. Both lead to the main street “Placa”, traditionally known as “Stradun”. Visitors can choose many types of accommodation, from luxurious 5 star hotels with their own beaches to apartments and old villa accommodation.
Surrounding the old city is the tourist area of Ploče in the south-east, Lapad Peninsula popular for its beaches to the west, and north is the main port of Gruž and Dubrovnik Marina. The nearby Elaphiti Islands of Koločep, Šipan and Lopud, and the Island of Mljet are all easy day excursions. Whatever the interest, Dubrovnik will entice every visitor and warm every heart with a fond remembrance of a time that once was.
