Dubrovnik Holidays Overview


Located on the beautiful coast of Adriatic Sea in south of Croatia, Dubrovnik is an ancient city and one of the top tourist destinations in the Mediterranean. Known as the Pear of Adriatic, the city is a World Heritage Site and an important seaport.

Dubrovnik is rich in stunning sculptures and architecture; it has many beautiful churches, fountains, museums and monasteries. While there are several good attractions within the city, there are several options for day trips including Cavtat, Mljet Island, Kotor and Ston.

Throughout the city are many enchanting ancient buildings like the world's oldest arboretum, Arboreturn Trsteno. Dubrovnik is also home to an ancient pharmacy built in 1317 and operating even today.

Dubrovnik has a good collection of renaissance architecture. The Sponza Palace is perhaps the best example. Built in the 16th century, the palace is used today as the National Archives. Another good highlight of the city is the Rector's Palace in Gothic-Renaissance architectural style displaying an ornate staircase and beautifully carved capitals. Today the palace is home to a museum.

St Balise's Church is the most popular in the city. The church was built in the 18th century in a baroque architectural style. The church has the relics of St Blaise and an impressive treasury. Another highly visited location in Dubrovnik is the Franciscan Monastery. The library of the monastery is quite extensive.

The Dubrovnik Summer Festival is a cultural event that lasts 45 days with games, concerts and live plays and attracts a lot of tourists.

Dubrovnik holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Franciscan Monastery
Placa 2
What is it? The 14th-century Franciscan church and monastery enclosed in the walls of medieval Dubrovnik boasts a world-renowned collection of ancient manuscripts, open for viewing to the public in a beautiful reading room. The research library has been utilised by many famous writers and historians, including Croatian literary scholars. The original library of the monastery was destroyed by fire after an earthquake in 1667, and the present collection was put together in the early 19th century by a Franciscan friar, Inocentije Culic, who energetically worked to save the manuscripts of several monasteries that were closed down during the French occupation of the city. The friar donated hundreds of manuscripts and valuable printed works to the library, leaving the city of Dubrovnik a treasure-house of learning and literature. Also at the Franciscan Monastery is a fascinating pharmacy museum, which preserves the relics of the medieval pharmacy that was run in the monastery as far back as 1317. Hours of Operation: 9am to 6pm daily Phone:(20) 321 410
