George Bernard Shaw was enchanted by this beautiful city, about which he said "those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik and see Dubrovnik", as well as, famously, describing it as "the pearl of the Adriatic". Dubrovnik truly is a stunning city with its amazing Old Town, which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979.
But whatever we and others say, our words do not give justice to this dazzling place. So come soon and see it with your own eyes!
As mentioned, the Old Town and its many sights (including the well-preserved city walls along which you can walk) is the main sight of Dubrovnik. If you are visiting in the summer, do not miss the
world-renowned Dubrovnik Summer Festival, with music, theatre and dance performances.
Getting Around Dubrovnik To get from Dubrovnik Airport to Dubrovnik itself, take on of the shuttle buses operated by Atlas. These wait outside the terminal building following arrival of scheduled flights, and take passengers to Pile Gate and the main bus station. Tickets cost 35 Kunas (approximately £4/€5/$6).
There is a good bus service in the city (see routes and timetables at the Dubrovnik Bus Terminal website) and you can also get around by taxi.
