Along the Dalmation Coast, the city of Dubrovnik has become famous for its pedestrian-only Old Town surrounded by fortress walls, and its historical heft has earned it World Heritage Site status.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Old Town and Stradun. Relax by the water at Beach Kupari and Sveti Jakov Beach. There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Gradske Zidine, examine the collection at War Photo Limited, don't miss a visit to Dubrovnik Cable Car, and head off the coast to Mljet.
