The Dubrovnik region is located in the south of Croatia and with its diversity attracts guests with a refined taste. Dubrovnik undoubtedly ranks first in terms of beauty and richness of historical sights. But we also recommend not to ignore other places of this interesting region such as the Elafit Islands, the Pelješac peninsula, the island of Korčula, the island of Mljet, the town of Cavtat and the Konavle region. Each of these beautiful places is unique and worthy of close attention.
- Old city of Dubrovnik
This medieval miracle of architecture was admired by many poets, writers and artists. Dubrovnik has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List for a long time. The city walls, fortresses and towers are the most majestic sight of Dubrovnik. The main street of the old town is called Stradun and divides the city into two parts. Walking along Stradun you will see other sights of the city: Large and Small fountains of Onofrios, the statue of Orland, Rectors Palace, Franciscan and Dominican monasteries, Cathedral and the main church of St. Blaise…. But here we have to stop, since you can write about Dubrovnik endlessly and we will continue to write about Dubrovnik in the following blogs. It’s time to write about other equally interesting places in this region.
- Peninsula of Pelješac
This largest Dalmatian peninsula will surely be appreciated by those who appreciate the synthesis of the freshest oysters and red wine. A small sea bay near the town of Mali Ston is a protected area of clean sea where oysters are grown. Oysters have a unique aroma and taste of the sea. You can taste oysters with wine not only in local restaurants, but also with local fishermen, who will catch them from the sea and open them in front of you. The Pelješac Peninsula is also home to the most famous Croatian red wines such as Plavac Mali, Dingač, Postup and local Zinfandel.
- Elafiti Islands – an archipelago of 13 islands
The main islands of the archipelago are Lopud Island, Šipan Island and Koločep Island. A great chance for sea lovers to explore this beautiful seaside oasis with many lagoons, hidden beaches and caves that can only be reached by sea. Koločep Island (the second name is Kalamota) is the closest to Dubrovnik. In just 20 minutes you will find yourself in a Mediterranean paradise. One of the most luxurious villas on the island is Villa Island Castle, which we offer for rent for guests who want to spend a holiday without noise and stress, having the privilege of a private beach and garden that surrounds the villa.

It is the most populated island in the South Dalmatia region. The medieval town of Korčula is the decoration of the island and is rich in historical sights. There are many beautiful beaches here.

- Cavtat town and Konavle area
The town of Cavtat is a jewel of the Riviera and, unlike Dubrovnik, offers a relaxing holiday surrounded by nature.

Konavle is the southernmost part of the Dubrovnik Riviera. Here are fertile valleys, vineyards and pastures. You will immediately notice the beauty of nature where there are all colors. This is the greenery of Mediterranean plants, white rocks and blue sea. The rural architecture of this place has been preserved. Folklore and gastronomic wealth of Konavle attracts more and more visitors, where time seems to have stood still or passes very slowly.
