Eating Out

Meals along the Dalmatian coast are heavily influenced by their Italian ancestry, often beginning with a hearty plate of pasta, black risotto or spaghetti in squid ink sauce.

The cuisine relies heavily on fresh fish and seafood caught offshore — usually grilled, served with local olive oil, garlic and a squeeze of zesty lemon.

History & Culture

Dubrovnik has a spectacular and well preserved history.

The distinctive Old Town is encircled with monumental white-stone walls that were originally completed in the 16th century, and a walk on top of them is sure to be the highlight of your trip.

A former city-state, Dubrovnik thrived on the wealth of merchants and ship builders, and has developed a rich culture. Historic buildings range from baroque St.

Blaise Church to Renaissance Sponza Palace and Gothic Rectors Palace, which is now a history museum.
