Dubrovnik is an old town in the far south-east of Croatia that faces the Adriatic Sea. It is small in terms of population (just over 40,000) but is one of the major tourist destinations along the Mediterranean. Having been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for several decades, the town - which in fact used to be an autonomous republic - is full of spectacular architecture, churches, monasteries, fountains and museums. The city walls overlooking the sea as well as the cable-car ride to Srđ Hill which offers great views are not to be missed.
The beaches nearby the Old Town are really quite good, and eating out in town is a good experience. The food may not always be too imaginative (think seafood, regional fare and a pizza here and there), but the atmosphere and for some restaurants gorgeous views more than make up for that.
