Total Croatia News


And surprisingly, the list matches ours…
The largest travel guide book publisher in the world Lonely Planet has visited Dubrovnik – Neretva County in order to find those idyllic gems where one can truly relax during the holidays away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Noble families of the former autonomous Republic of Dubrovnik used to leave the Old Town during the summer days in order to avoid the heat and the smell of the streets (please bear in mind that they did not have fridges and deodorant sprays at that time). Nowadays numerous international visitors crave a remote and tranquil paradise a couple of hours drive from Dubrovnik. We’re here to help you out with the tips.

Lonely Planet starts turning your wanderlust senses to Cavtat, Croatia’s southernmost town and the centre of the Konavle municipality located a mere 15km from Dubrovnik’s Old Town. Every location suggestion is accompanied with an additional tip on how to get there and what public transport to use.


Among the unavoidable locations in this southernmost region in Croatia that always make the list are the island of Lokrum, the Elafiti archipelago that consists of three islands Koločep (Kalamota), Lopud and Šipan, the emerald green national park of Mljet island, Korčula’s enchanting old town, pairing oysters with fine local wines in Ston, and the often overlooked tiny village of Vid on the Neretva river, as well as safari tours in the Konavle Valley.








Suggested getaways for the nearby non EU countries of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro are the spectacular Bay of Kotor and Mostar’s picturesque Stari Most bridge.
