Dubrovnik

— 9 nights

Pearl of the Adriatic

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.
You'll get in some beach time at Beach Kupari and Sveti Jakov Beach. Visiting Lokrum Island and Zarkovica Animal Shelter will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Dubrovnik: Cavtat (Ronald Brown Pathway, Church of Our Lady of the Snow, &more) and Pasjaca Beach (in Popovici). And it doesn't end there: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Dubrovnik Beer Company, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Dominican Monastery, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Saint Blaise, and steep yourself in history at St. John's Fortress.

For where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, read Dubrovnik trip maker website.

Birmingham, USA to Dubrovnik is an approximately 17-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Birmingham to Dubrovnik. Traveling from Birmingham in May, expect nights in Dubrovnik to be about the same, around 57°F, while days are little chillier, around 72°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) so you can go by car to Split.

Once situated on the edge of empires between the Balkans and Central Europe, Croatia represents a land of great natural diversity and rich cultural heritage. Croatian cultural tourism relies on the charming juxtaposition of contrasts. Venetian palaces sit next to Napoleonic forts, Viennese mansions face Socialist Realist sculpture, and early Slavic churches built on the sites of ancient Roman settlements offer countless sightseeing opportunities. Croatia's museums present the main stages of the history of Europe. The country's sapphire seawater and long coastline speckled with islands draws visitors, as do numerous nature reserves, marinas, ancient fortified towns, and sandy and rocky beaches. In recent years, Croatia's shoreline has become a famed center for nautical tourism and naturism, and is a promising diving destination. Hikers explore outdoor landscapes of canyons, underground grottoes, dramatic waterfalls, stony peaks, and scenic lakes of the Dinaric Alps, which hug the coastline. Inland areas showcase mountain resorts, national parks, pine forests, vineyards, and spas.
