Things to do in DubrovnikEdit This
Experience the "Pearl of the Adriatic" through Dubrovnik Cruises. The ancient port city of Croatia, which lies within the Dalmatain Coast, offers the beauty of the Adriatic Sea plus the ancient wonders of Croatia. Enjoy the blue waters while cruising and the historic architecture of the city formerly known as Ragusa.
Dubrovnik is in a Mediterranean city featuring dry warm summers (temperatures average in the 80s) and temperate winters. Perfect for cruising in the summer, 80 plus degree weather allows the visitor the freedom to swim the pristine waters or sunbath on the shore, yet comfortable enough to tour the ancient sites and appreciate the outdoor shopping. Mild winters allow for satisfying off-season travel as well.
Dubrovnik Cruises generally dock in Old Town. Your trip can vary from a day trip to a 24-day voyage through the Black Sea. You can choose to cruise locally visiting cities such as Split, Zadar, the Serbian Port of Koper and the Albanian city of Durres or you can add diversity to your travels and include Venice and Istanbul. Make sure your excursion includes Cavat, a resort community on the southern side of Rat peninsula that offers gorgeous beaches and resort-style travel. Boats come and go several times a day from the local old harbor pier.
Exclusive to Bargain Cruising
If you'd prefer more freedom and privacy, you can take your own private cruise, a private and pricey alternative. Cruises can be purchased as bargain packages as well. Directline cruises offers 5 percent discounts on cruises booked through their 800 number. Vacations-to-Go claim that you can save up to 75 percent off through their booking procedures.
Don't Forget the Essentials
Croatian travel requires a passport, but no visa if your visit is limited to under 90 days. If you don't speak Croatian, fret not. English is spoken for the benefit of tourists. During the latter 1900s Croatia was considered part of the former nation of Yugoslavia and was attacked by former country members in the Serbian-Montenegro Army. Croatia is now considered both a safe and free nation and Dubrovnik a safe community. While euros are commonly accepted, the official currency of Croatia is the Kuna. Most restaurants and tourist attractions are considered reasonably priced.
