Dubrovnik guide

Why visit the city of Dubrovnik? Perhaps because of the rich history that it offers, the fact that since 1979, the city was taken under the protection of UNESCO, or because of the open stages which hold performances of Renaissance music and dance or Dalmatian choirs? If you long for some tradition, the Cathedral, the remains of the Benedictine monastery from the 12th century, the Royal Fortress, the Dominican Monastery Museum and the Maritime Museum, are the places you absolutely must visit. In the Cathedral you will find artifacts dating back to the 11th – 19th century. A collection of paintings by masters of the Dubrovnik school of painting from the 15th and 16th century is kept in the Museum of the Dominican monastery. The interesting history of Dubrovnik’s maritime tradition can be studied at the above mentioned Maritime Museum. In terms of modern life, Dubrovnik offers events such as Libertas Film Festival, contents such as jeep safaris, sailing to Elafiti islands. The island of Lokrum, also known as the island of love, is located in the immediate vicinity of the city. Also, the nudist beach is one of the favorite attractions of Dubrovnik, thanks to a warm, dry, mild Mediterranean climate, which affects the city. For gourmets, the city of Dubrovnik boasts the recipes from the past – the taste of seafood delicacies was preserved, such as the oyster (Ostrea edulis).

        Scams in Dubrovnik

        During your stay in Dubrovnik, you do not have to be afraid of frauds and theft, because Croatia is a safe country, and you will be safe in it. You will rarely see a thief or a criminal running from the police in the street because they are almost no such occurrences. Also, as far as the retailers in Croatia, people are very friendly, sometimes they are even willing to negotiate the price, but they will definitely not try to trick you.

        The only thing you should be careful about is when you are driving with a taxi make sure that the taxi driver turns on the taximeter, because they are obliged to do that but sometimes they “forget” and charge you more then they should.
