Dubrovnik in the European top ten again.
The Pearl of the Adriatic’s status as one of the top destinations in Europe was given more credence on December 27, 2015, as respected British broadsheet The Daily Telegraph named Dubrovnik in its star-studded list of top ten European city breaks for 2016.
The Croatian UNESCO World Heritage City made the list alongside Venice, Paris, Istanbul, Rome, Amsterdam, Florence, London, Berlin and Barcelona. Here is what The Daily Telegraph had to say about Dubrovnik.
Dubrovnik is one of the world’s most magnificent walled cities. Now a Unesco world heritage site and Croatia’s most up-market destination, it was once the capital of the wealthy sea-faring Republic of Ragusa (1358-1808). Today, visitors come to Dubrovnik for leisure, not to trade. The main draw is the charming pedestrian-only old town, packed with aristocratic palazzi and elegant Baroque churches, contained within sturdy medieval fortifications. Add to this the beaches, pristine sea, informal eateries serving top-notch seafood, chic five-star hotels and adventure sports facilities, and your holiday is made.
