Dubrovnik, Croatia (UNESCO site)
View Original Description
Considered the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” Croatia’s Dubrovnik is full of history, beautiful architecture, and fabulous beaches along a crystal-clear sea. In 1979, the city of Dubrovnik was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Unfortunately, that didn’t keep the city from the effects of war in 1991. Years later, the town has been almost completely repaired, so you’ll still get a chance to marvel at the marble streets and the famous Dubrovnik walls that were constructed during the 14th and 15th centuries.
Although Dubrovinik is beautiful any time of year, it might be best enjoyed in the summer months. There are ample ferry services and boats available that sale the Adriatic Sea. Take either a day trip to a nearby island or book a cabin to enjoy a more scenic excursion. If that’s not enough of a reason to head to Dubrovnik during summer, the Summer Festival is another. During the months of July and August, you’ll be able to take in theatre, ballet, and opera programs that have made this festival famous.

Feats of St. Blaise – Feb 3
