Dubrovnik, set on the Adriatic coast at the southern tip of Croatia, is one of the most prominent tourist spots of the Mediterranean, a seaport and the administrative, cultural and historical center of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. The Old Town of Dubrovnik is also Croatia’s and world’s priceless jewel, inscribed on a world-famous UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, steeped in history and culture. Top Dubrovnik attractions include City Walls, Rector's Palace, Stradun, Sponza, Franciscan Monastery, St. Blaise Church, Dubrovnik Cathedral and many more. It is also a proud holder of the third oldest pharmacy in all of Europe and the oldest pharmacy still in use on the continent today. Originally opened in 1317, the Old Pharmacy has been in operation for over 700 years, and many of the pharmacy’s original objects, like stone bowls, ancient lab equipment, ceramics and medical books, are on display in the monastery museum. Due to its profound beauty and historic magic, famous British poet George Bernard Shaw once wrote - “Those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik”.
Dubrovnik is also, without doubt, currently one of the safest and most popular conference destinations on the Mediterranean, a host to many international gatherings every year. A surfeit of modern facilities combined with unique activities for delegates make this a popular choice for conference organizers. This modern tourist city offers high-quality accommodation for both business and leisure, but its best appeal is certainly the possibility to organize events in the inspiring historic venues, renaissance palaces, medieval forts or even ships sailing around the famous city walls.
The mild Mediterranean climate makes Dubrovnik appealing through all seasons. There are more than 250 sunny days in the year, with the approximate yearly temperature of about 17°C, while the average temperature in the winter months is 10°C. The maximal summer temperatures are usually between 25°C and 30°C.
Republic of Croatia is a member of the European Union as of July 1st 2013 and therefore our visa regime is fully harmonized with the European system.
