Pearl of the Adriatic

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.
Visiting Lokrum Island and Trsteno Arboretum will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Kayaking & Canoeing and Fort Lovrijenac. Step out of Dubrovnik with an excursion to Cavtat Old Town in Cavtat--about 34 minutes away. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Pile Gate, go for a stroll along the water at City Harbor, and take an in-depth tour of War Photo Limited.

For reviews, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Dubrovnik travel route planner.

Kolkata (Calcutta), India to Dubrovnik is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. You'll gain 4.5 hours traveling from Kolkata (Calcutta) to Dubrovnik due to the time zone difference.

Medieval Heart of France
