Dubrovnik is known for its nickname ‘’The Pearl of Adriatic’’. The over a thousand year old history of Dubrovnik is visible in every part of this city. Dubrovnik is a living museum and a live stage that has an ideal connection between its historical past and modern present. It is surrounded by medieval walls that are 1940 metres long and are preserved in their original form. They are open to visitors and are the city’s greatest attraction. Since 1979 the town has been under the protection of UNESCO.
We organise a day trip from Split and the excursion lasts for 12 hours. Departure time is at 7:30 in the morning and the meeting point is in front of our agency. Our English-speaking guide will welcome you and travel with you.
The drive from Split to Dubrovnik lasts a little over 3 hours, but in the meantime you will have the chance to experience our beautiful coast, while our guide shears interesting details.
Upon arrival we will meet with a local guide that will give you an hour and a half long tour in which he will incorporate all the marvels that Dubrovnik has to offer. The most famous part of the Dubrovnik are its medieval walls, you can climb and take a postcard worthy pictures.
Moreover he will show you the Stradun (main street in the city), Orlando’s pillar ( used for proclamations and punishments), the Gothic renaissance palace of Sponza that dates back to 16th century and is currently used as a National Archives, the celebrated Rector’s Palace as well as the famous church and monastery.
Dubrovnik has, without a doubt, a special place in Croatia’s cultural heritage. After a guided tour you will have 3 hours of free time to explore the city by yourself and just sink all the vibrant energy that this marvellous city has to offer. You can take magnificent pictures or you can get lost in the small and secluded streets that will make you feel like you stepped into a different era.
We recommend you the Ston oysters and mussels, which are considered to be some of the tastiest and finest shell fish in the Adriatic. Asides from lamb and veal cooked in embers under an iron bell, this region’s gastronomic chapter consists of eel and frog stew from the Neretva valley.
Maybe more than anywhere else on the coast, the Dubrovnik region offers special sweet pastries where the most famous are Rožata and Kotonjata as well as the Mantalata and Arancina cakes. All this should be accompanied with top quality wines such as Dingač and Postup from Pelješac, Pošip and Grk from Korčula, as well as Dubrovnik’s malvasia from Konavle.
