Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, attracting thousands of tourists from all over the world every year. It is often referred to as the pearl of the Adriatic and the ornament of the southern coast of Croatia. This Dalmatian gem boasts an opulent cultural heritage, which secured it a place on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1979. Its city walls, considered one of the most picturesque fortifications on the globe, embrace the heart of Dubrovnik and provide an excellent observation point for the beauty and charm of this maritime port city. While strolling down the Stradun, the most popular and the widest street of the city, we will have a chance to see its countless landmarks such as the Rector’s Palace, the Church of St Blaise – the patron saint of the city, the Franciscan Church with its pharmacy being one of the oldest in Europe, Onofrio’s Fountain, Sponza Palace, the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and many more. We might indulge in an aromatic espresso in one of the ambient cafés located in one of many narrow alleys of the old town or try some of the Mediterranean specialties in one of the Dalmatian konobas.

During a guided walking tour we will familiarise ourselves with the history of the city and see some of its most well-known treasures. We will use our spare time to walk to the city walls of Dubrovnik to enjoy the view of the city panorama dotted with the typical orange roofs. After this wonderful adventure in the pearl of the Adriatic we will head towards Konavle, to the Sokol Tower. Also referred to as Sokol Grad, it was founded on a tall rock and its fist mention dates back to 1391, although its construction was finalised in 1419, in the times of the famous Dubrovnik Republic. Apart from serving as a fortress, the tower was used as a storage place for arms and food in the event of potential military attacks. In 1667 it proved its strength and stability, withstanding a terrible earthquake which completely destroyed the rest of Dubrovnik. It was vacated at the beginning of the 18th century and in 2013 it re-opened its doors for visitors. During the tour we will see a rich archaeological collection being a testament of the turbulent, century-long history of the region. We will also have a chance to admire the view of Konavle from the tower. We will finish this exciting day with a well-deserved regional meal. Among the beautiful scenery of Konavle we will have some of the traditional dishes prepared according to original recipes and accompanied by wine –another symbol of Konavle.
