Dubrovnik-Neretva County is the southernmost region in Croatia. The area is located in the South Dalmatian sailing area. The province has a small coastline and is separated from the interior by a mountain range. Dubrovnik-Neretva has 3 parts: the relatively narrow coastal strip with a number of islands near the mainland, the open sea and the lower valley Neretva. The capital of the province is the city of Dubrovnik. This ancient fortified city attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world every year, and for good reason! Dubrovnik is known as the pearl of the Adriatic and was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979. The center of Dubrovnik is very mystical and wonderful because the buildings are very old. Some scenes of Kings Landing from the Game of Thrones series were filmed in the city, so if you're a fan, it's definitely worth a visit. If you want a really nice view of the city, you should visit the old walls of the city. The view from there is truly breathtaking. There are a lot of pleasant restaurants and shops in the center of the city. In addition, modern Dubrovnik also has beautiful beaches. However, sailing enthusiasts will mainly experience Dubrovnik from the marina. This is beautifully situated in the old harbor and gives you a magnificent view over both the city and the Adriatic Sea. On the coast, the wind is very pleasant and the sea is clear blue.
Just outside Dubrovnik harbor is the first of Croatia's many islands: densely forested Lokrum, home to the ruins of a Benedictine monastery. During the trip, our sailors like to pass the Mljet National Park, which is further north of Dubrovnik. This island is full of pine trees with many protected coves to moor. The journey can continue to the island of Korčula, a medieval beauty whose architecture is influenced by the famous Venice.
For some inspiration for your holiday in Croatia, we can help you with a nice route description that will allow you to see a lot of this region. The route we have mapped out for you will pass many islands and beautiful villages and can be completed within a week. This route is of course only an example and can be completely adapted to your own wishes.
