Dubrovnik & the Dalmatian Coast

Whether you visit for the sun, the sailing, the scenery, or some of the freshest
seafood you’ll find anywhere, the Dalmatian coast is quite simply one of
Europe’s most stunning escapes. Long stretches of glorious shoreline are
framed between striking limestone mountains and the azure waters of the
Adriatic, where hundreds of islands, inhabited and uninhabited, await
exploration. The coastline is punctuated by a series of lively towns and cities,
in which the region’s long and eclectic history comes alive in wonderfully
preserved “old cores” that are no mere museum-pieces, but vibrant, bustling
hubs of activity – nowhere more so than Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage
Site now returned to its former splendour after the siege of the early 1990s.

Palace, Dubrovnik
Rector’s
Under the Republic of Ragusa,

the city’s figurehead presided here,
amidst a flurry of Gothic and
Renaissance architecture. This
impressive palace has now been
reinvented as a museum and
cultural venue (see pp14–15).

Town
Kor¦ula
It may or may not be

the birthplace of Marco
Polo, but Kor¦ula Town is
simply sublime, set on its
own peninsula, framed by
sea and mountains. Its
cathedral is one of the most
charming ecclesiastical
buildings in the Adriatic
(see pp16–17).
