Dubrovnik, on Croatia's southern coast, is one of the most beautiful cities in the entire Mediterranean region. A cultural and aesthetic gem, Lord Byron called Dubrovnik the Pearl of the Adriatic because of its beautiful setting between azure waters and sheer limestone cliffs.
Discount travel to Dubrovnik is popular and visitors from the UK, Germany, Australia and other countries throughout the world book flights to Dubrovnik through Direct Flights. They're always glad they do: Dubrovnik has the reputation of being one of the finest seaside holiday locations in the region, and its reputation is well-deserved.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site with a pedestrianised old city centre, Dubrovnik offers a melange of centuries-old monasteries, museums, churches, palaces, cafes, shops and monuments within its Mediaeval city walls. Dubrovnik's history is fascinating: for centuries it was an independent city-state that withstood attacks by the Venetians and Ottomans. Now, though, the only onslaughts the city faces are the visits made by travellers on cheap holidays to Dubrovnik and an increasing amount of accommodation in Dubrovnik to house travellers during their stay.
The city's main attractions, including a Franciscan monastery, the Sponza Palace, an iconic clocktower, the cathedral, and the Rector's Palace, are conveniently located within the old city. No visit to Dubrovnik is complete without a walk along the top of the sturdy stone walls that encircle the city. The view from the top includes Adriatic vistas, the city's rooftops and restaurants improbably perched on rocky outcroppings.
Onorio's fountains are two more Dubrovnik must-sees. These two ornate fountains in the old town were constructed hundreds of years ago and even today provide clean, cold water via an aqueduct from the Dubrovnik River. The larger fountain delivers water from 16 carved stone heads that ring the lower portion of the structure, while water at the smaller fountain flows through a more ornate device that features detailed sculpture work. See it all for yourself; Direct Flights has cheap flights to Dubrovnik as well as travel packages including discount accommodation.
The Romanesque cloister at the 14th-century Franciscan monastery is its most compelling feature, but visitors can also see the monastery's tranquil garden, church, bell tower, and museum with ancient manuscripts and gold and silver artwork. A small apothecary inside the monastery has been in business since the 1300s and claims to be the oldest working pharmacy in Europe; its display of ancient laboratory equipment, mortars, measuring tools and containers would seem to bear the claim. Dubrovnik Cathedral (the Church of the Assumption) is an ornate baroque-style structure with three naves that form a cross. Its rich treasury includes gold and silver reliquaries and Titian's multi-panel painting "The Assumption of the Virgin."
The city features other wonders for visitors on Dubrovnik travel packages: the 14th-century Sponza Palace and its moving memorial to the Dubrovnik Defenders; the Rector's Palace museum and the traditional cultural events held in its courtyard; Luza Square and its colourful Summer Festival; and the 14th-century Dominican Monastery and Museum, with the graceful triple arches of its cloister and fine religious art collection.
