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.
Relax by the water at Sveti Jakov Beach and Srebreno Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Church of Saint Blaise and Dominican Monastery. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Dubrovnik: Cavtat (Church of Our Lady of the Snow, Vlaho Bukovac House, & more). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Brsalje Street, take an in-depth tour of Rector's Palace, contemplate the long history of Walls of Dubrovnik, and explore the galleries of Upper Corner Tower Foundry Museum.
