And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Dubrovnik City Walls, brush up on your military savvy at Museum of Croatian War of Independence, get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, and get advice or help at The Franciscan Church and Monastery.
