The town of museums and festivals, the town of taverns and restaurants, the place of a mild Mediterranean climate and wonderful landscapes, that will convince you to come back again.

The words of famous Irish writer Bernard Shaw 'Those who look for a paradise on earth should come to this town' are a sufficient reason to set off to Dubrovnik to verify his statement.

Useful tips when visiting Dubrovnik

This city boasts of a cosmopolitan tourism. It's an aristocratic and elite destination. Hotels are more sophisticated, and more expensive on the Adriatic coast.

For all of you who are not fans of the crowds, visit this city museum in off season. The real tourist season runs from Easter to late October.

The most gorgeous months to be here are from May to August, but particularly July and August, may sound like a dream, but only until you hear the prices. To stay in Old Town, some hotels go above 450 € a night (3.500 Kuna).

There are less expensive options but you should stay 20 to 30 km from the Old Town or on Elafiti islands, is a wise alternative. If you want my advice, the best periods are March – May or September – November.
