Dubrovnik, Croatia is often referred to as the Pearl of the Adriatic. It should be on anyone's list of top travel destinations
when visiting Croatia. This most impressive ancient city resides on the seashore with impressive views of the gorgeous waters of
the Adriatic Sea. In the far south of Croatia, it enjoys an excellent
climate. The city is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, protected as an excellent example of a medieval walled city. Once
inside its old walls, a visitor will see 11th and 12th century buildings and an endless array of shops, cafes, and
restaurants with outdoor seating.
