The Dubrovnik Coast can offer tourists and visitors many excursions, which are of interest due to their natural, historical and cultural values, customs and tradition.

Dubrovnik – the Pearl of the Adriatic
Dubrovnik – biser JadranaDubrovnik has preserved its finest palaces, churches and monasteries; streets and communal areas; stone walls, towers and forts, the unparalleled Stradun (The Plaza), and other traditional and spiritual places. This is a unique City, which has valued freedom above material wealth, defi ned by the Statue of 1272 and recognized by its flag of St Blaise borne over the world’s oceans. It has always been its own master, untouchable and defiant and beautiful under the eternal protection of its patron saint, St. Blaise. Excellent writers were born and worked here: Marin Držić, the author of splendid comedies; Ivan Gunduli. The “poet of freedom”; ingenious astronomer and mathematician Ruđer Bošković; Marin Getaldić, “a devil in mathematics, and angel in the heart”; Miho Pracat, a seaman and donor; Nikola Božidarević, Mihajlo Hamzić, Vicko Lovrin Dobričević, all representatives of the Dubrovnik school of painting. The City has survived due to its wisdom and its skilful diplomacy; it was a strong maritime and trade force in the 16th century, and today, it is a tourist destination, celebrated all over the world.

  • The History of the Dubrovnik Coast
    Supposed remains from the Neolithic period have not yet been found within the municipal boundaries of the Dubrovnik Coast. The possible Neolithic locationof Špilja, to the west of the village of Đonta Doli will probably determine the ancient history of the area.
