From historic walls to wineries, from warm seas to a star-studded sky, southern Croatia offers adventures of all types. The land of the Greek hero Odysseus, famous explorer Marco Polo, and a rich culture invites you to explore its incredible landscapes, fascinating legends, and stunning beauty.

A city that leaves nobody unmoved

Start your journey through the area of the former Republic of Dubrovnik from its very core. Dubrovnik, one of the most dazzling cities in the world, is a rare example of indescribable beauty, spiritual greatness, and human strength.

1,940 meters of medieval walls outline people’s dreams of freedom, and a performance stage leads to the stars during the Dubrovnik Summer Festival or to the Iron Throne in Game of Thrones.

When you arrive in the old town, which is protected by UNESCO, don't forget to shake the hand of the patron saint St. Blaise, who will show you the endless universe of life and thousands of years of history recorded there by works of art. The main street (Stradun) is the perfect spot for absorbing the beauty of stone compositions beneath the stars, while the Sponza Palace, the Rector’s Palace, the Large and Small Onofrio's Fountains, the Church of St. Blaise, and Orlando’s Column will show you the side of the town that shall forever remain youthful.

Explore a plethora of historical and natural sights by visiting museums, discover the green realm of the Trsteno Arboretum, and enjoy the panorama from the Srđ hill, which can be easily reached by cable car. Every view in Dubrovnik is limitless, every memory perfect, and every day seems too short.

Explore the fascinating history of the islands

Lokrum, also known as the island of lovers, the place of origin of the centuries-old legend of Richard the Lionheart, is an ideal getaway haven. A nature reserve with a garden full of exotic plants, a summer house, a small lake connected to the sea, and several idyllic beaches are the main ingredients for a perfect summer day.

The traveller in you might want to continue towards the open sea, where the Elaphites will be waiting for you.

Named Elaphite islands after the Latin word Elaphos for deer, this archipelago, which used to be the habitat of this noble wild game, concentrates all the qualities of the untouched Mediterranean, featuring subtropical vegetation, expansive pine tree forests and olive groves, all surrounded by amazing sandy beaches.

They are a group of islands that were once a popular destination among the Dubrovnik nobility and are nowadays appreciated by all those who wish to experience the true Mediterranean. The three largest islands among them – Koločep, Lopud, and Šipan – exude romance with bays where pine trees nearly embrace the sea.

The remaining three inhabited islands in the southern Adriatic can almost be viewed as three separate continents. So different, yet so similar in their timeless beauty. The farthest of the bunch is Lastovo, which forms the Lastovo Islands Nature Park with its 46 islands, islets, rocks, and reefs. It is a lonely offshore ship anchored under the stars, persevering against the strongest storms and the most violent waves. Isolated, wild, wooded, and fragrant. The dream of every true traveller.


Lastovo was called the imperial island by the Romans, while the neighbouring Mljet is known as Odysseus’ Island. The Mljet National Park accounts for almost a third of the island’s surface area, and it comprises the Small and Large Lake with the islet of St. Mary, home to a Benedictine monastery. Mljet has no large settlements, and nature lovers will surely find the uninhabited southern part of the island, where an ancient hero was stranded in a shipwreck, particularly attractive.

Just as Mljet was made famous by Homer, Korčula is known as the island of Marco Polo, and its shores have been inhabited since prehistoric times. The Revelin Fort, the Gabrielis Palace housing the Town Museum of Korčula, and the Cathedral of St. Mark offer a fantastic historical experience. Marco Polo’s house is more than just a story of a fascinating life – it is also a tribute to all travellers who make their dreams come true. Moreška, a unique romantic battle dance with sabres, which generations of island families proudly participate in, has flowed in from the waterfalls of Korčula’s history. 

The very arrival on the Pelješac peninsula constitutes a special event. A dreamy road across the Pelješac Bridge will take you to the land of the finest wine, delicious oysters, and fragrant salt. Here, you will find Orebić, the town of captains and ship owners whose fascinating history can be discovered in the Maritime Museum, Viganj – a surfers’ paradise – as well as the second largest walls in the world. Spanning more than five kilometres, the Walls of Ston, made popular worldwide by Game of Thrones, are testament to another interesting chapter in the story of the Republic of Dubrovnik.
