Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik ©
Along the Dalmation Coast, the city of Dubrovnik has become famous for its pedestrian-only Old Town surrounded by fortress walls, and its historical heft has earned it World Heritage Site status.
Escape the urban bustle at Beach Kupari and Lokrum Island. Family-friendly places like Dubrovnik City Walls and Church of Saint Blaise will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Dubrovnik: Cavtat Cemetery (in Cavtat) and Mljet National Park (in Mljet Island). The adventure continues: enjoy breathtaking views from Upper Corner Tower Foundry Museum, take in the exciting artwork at Art by Stjepko, make a trip to Stradun, and contemplate the long history of Fort Lovrijenac.

Plan my day in Dubrovnik using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Calgary, Canada to Dubrovnik is an approximately 17-hour flight. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Calgary to Dubrovnik due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Calgary in June, with highs in Dubrovnik at 30°C and lows at 21°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Wed) so you can travel to Hvar.
