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.
Step out of the city life by going to Island of Lokrum and Kayaking & Canoeing. There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Old Town, stroll through Sveti Jakov Beach, browse the exhibits of Art by Stjepko, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Dubrovnik City Walls.
