Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik ©

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.
Popular historic sites such as Dubrovnik City Walls and Stradun are in your itinerary. Take a break from the city and head to Mljet National Park and Beach Kupari. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Old Town, see the interesting displays at Upper Corner Tower Foundry Museum, take an in-depth tour of War Photo Limited, and kick back and relax at Sveti Jakov Beach.

To find more things to do, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Dubrovnik trip itinerary planning app.

Drive from Kotor to Dubrovnik in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. While traveling from Kotor, expect slightly colder days and about the same nights in Dubrovnik, ranging from highs of 34°C to lows of 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
