Cheap flights to Dubrovnik
Described by poets as the ‘the pearl of the Adriatic’ and ‘heaven on earth,’ Dubrovnik really is a picture postcard of a city. This vibrant fortress town that extends down into glittering turquoise waters of the Adriatic has lots of surprises up its sleeve.
And as any Dubrovnik travel guide will tell you, it is perfect for tourists looking for a summer getaway or a city break retreat. Why is this we hear you ask? Well, it could have something to do with the perfect summer temperatures, crystal clear waters, sandy beaches, historic buildings, or the wealth of activities for all.
Looking for some Mediterranean flavours to take back home? At Oleoteka Uje you can pick up Croatian products like orange and forest-fruit jams, hand-made pasta and extra-virgin olive oil. The latter comes from the island of Bra?, where Trojan warrior Antenor was famously said to have planted an olive branch. www.uje.hr
