Holidays in Dubrovnik have long been a favourite with British travellers, and it is easy to see why. The city’s unique mix of medieval architecture, bustling nightlife and gorgeous coastline, tucked away in southern Croatia, is just two hours from the UK - meaning this magical city and its many hidden treasures are closer than you think.
If you are looking for a sunny holiday or city break destination, then a trip to Dubrovnik in the summer can offer you all of the Vitamin D you need. Enjoy temperatures in the high twenties as you sail out to tiny islands or explore secluded beaches along the coastline, and when you need to cool off, relax and refresh yourself in the gorgeous cafes and quaint bars.
But whatever the weather, the 13th century ramparts of Old Town are always fascinating to visit, and make your Dubrovnik holiday feel like a step back in time. From there you can enter the city through either the Pile or Ploce portals, leading to countless restaurants and the popular shopping district of Stradun. With every twist and turn through cobbled streets you will find hidden alleyways, quaint shops and traditional Croatian bars, where you can mingle with the locals and experience the famous nightlife.
If you want to get a great view of this amazing and picturesque city then why not take a ride on the cable car from downtown to the hilltop at Mount Srdj, where you are blessed with stunning panoramic views over Dubrovnik. At night, music spills out into the streets from jazz clubs, while the vibrant nightclubs around the harbour entertain locals and tourists until the early hours.
