Dubrovnik – UNESCO old town city tour & island of Lokrum

 

A UNESCO world heritage site and one of the world’s most famous places to visit – explore the old white marbled beautiful Dubrovnik, proud of its independence from its very beginning, which will welcome you in its traditional aristocratic style. Lose yourself in narrow cobbled streets, Game of Thrones filming locations, walk the ‘Stradun’ to see and be seen, drink ‘long  coffees’ in bars with amazing views and explore how ‘it used to be’ living in the most preserved old city in the world. This symphony of history, natural beauty, and gastronomic pleasures will leave you breathless.

Dubrovnik – Elafiti Islands

Board your private motor or sailing boat and enjoy a cruise towards the Elafiti Islands, a breathtaking archipelago of several small islands, the guardians of Dubrovnik’s sea. The wild beauty of these untouched islands combined with their cultural heritage make them unique among the hundreds of other Croatian islands. Gaze into the deep green sea, hide in some small secluded bay and take a swim under the branches of pine trees that reach down to the water’s surface. Enjoy the deafening silence of Kalamota, the natural beauty of Mediterranean herbs, vineyards and vegetables in the Šipan fields or the spectacular bays and old castles in the gothic – renaissance style of Lopud. All three islands used to be the summer residences of the aristocracy of the old Dubrovnik Republic.

Dubrovnik – Montenegro tour – UNESCO Kotor

Witness the immense beauty of the “Black Mountain” (Montenegro), a small state with rugged mountains just above the long sandy Adriatic beaches. Drive along Boka Kotorska – the biggest fjord in the Adriatic and walk through the narrow streets of the UNESCO protected site of Kotor – a walled city that has been part of the Venetian Republic for four centuries and has preserved its Venetian influence in the architecture and the spirit of the town. Continue towards Njeguši, hometown of the famous poet Petar Njegoš, enjoy the spectacular panoramic views, traditional farms, and the delicious Njeguški prosciutto. Drive further up to Lovćen at an altitude of 1.749km, a grand testament to Montenegro’s beauty from where you can practically see the whole country at once.

Dubrovnik – Bosnia & Herzegovina tour – UNESCO Mostar town & Old Bridge

A balanced fusion of Eastern and Western influences, a true reflection of Bosnian culture and history is exemplified in the town of Mostar – the UNESCO protected city that was named for its beautiful bridge (Stari Most) built across the river Neretva where “the east meets the west”.  Try traditional and unique Bosnian cuisine like their well known “ćevapi”  “burek” , “đuvedž” and “ćufte”. Enjoy the magnificent fields of mandarin trees along the road.

Feel the charming and vivid atmosphere of the largest city on the Dalmatian coast with its UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Diocletian palace from the 4th century – one of the greatest Roman ruins in Central Europe. Walk along the famous Splitska Riva  – the  promenade along Adriatic lined with crowded cafes –  to feel the pulse of Croatia’s largest ‘city on the sea’. You will have a chance to explore the Diocletian Palace complex which is still home to over 3000  residents today.  Some of the best preserved sites you can visit are:  the Vestibule, the Temple of Jupiter, the Peristyle, and Diocletian’s Mausoleum.

Dating from the 11th century this “Krešimir town” as they still call Šibenik today, referring to King Petar Krešimir IV, has impressive fortifications: Fort St. Ivan, Fort St. Mihovil, Fort St. Nicola and Fort St. Ante. The symbol of the town is the UNESCO world heritage site Cathedral St. James – a masterpiece of the famous Croatian architect Juraj Dalmatinac who built this cathedral only of stone without any other materials, with a remarkable seventy four small Renaissance stone portraits immortalizing important contemporaries who had, for some reason or another, particularly impressed the architect.
