When talking about southern Dalmatia one has to mention Dubrovnik. Many international
magazines have done features on this very city and it is often the destination of jet-setters. Walking along the medieval
walls or going on an excursion to the Elaphite islands is truly a unique experience. There are also small and quaint places such as
Cavtat or the peninsula of Peljesac that
are not as glamorous however they offer fine wines, good food and hospitable locals. Familiarize yourself with the
hinterland, particularly Konavle, where the tradition of old crafts and trades is maintained. The
island of Korcula features knight games and the green island of Mljet is partially a national park.
The group of southern Dalmatian islands includes Korcula, Lastovo, the Elaphite islands, near Dubrovnik and the island of Mljet. The Elaphite islands include Sipan, Lopud and Kolocep. North of the Elaphite islands is the island of Mljet, part of which is a national park. Should you decide to go further you will reach the islands of Lastovo and Korcula. On the island of Korcula you will see the island’s historical tradition displayed in knight games and taste delicious wines which compliment Dalmatian specialties. Discover why the Romans referred to Lastovo as the Emperor’s island and how carnivals are celebrated.
Ancient remains, Renaissance palaces and villas make up the historical nucleus of Cavtat, a town south of Dubrovnik. In ancient times it was known as Epidaurum and today is the
tourist and cultural center of Konavle, the southernmost region of Croatia. Visit the house of Vlaho Bukovac, a famous artist
and see his collection of paintings and artwork. It is a town of beautiful beaches and luxury hotels along with a traditional way
of life and customs that welcome you. Once you have familiarized yourself with the town of Cavtat, go on an excursion to
Dubrovnik, the island of Mljet or the Elaphite islands.
Peljesac is the largest peninsula in Dalmatia and its architecture will show you traces of history left by a variety of cultures. The Ston walls connect
Mali Ston and Ston, which are known for their rich history and historical stone nucleus, while the walls were built to protect
Peljesac by separating it from the mainland. Ston is famous for its salt quarry that dates back to the Dubrovnik Republic Ston
and is still in operation today. However it is also known for its oyster beds of various shells which you can taste in restaurants in Ston.
Beautiful island of Korcula was allegedly named after the heroine of Greek mythology Kerkyra,
who came to live on the island on decision of sea god Poseidon. Korcula was also the home of Marco Polo, famous
world explorer. Take a walk around Korcula and see the historic heritage in famous knight game called Moreška where
the knights in red and black costumes fight over the affection of a lady. You will find yourself in another time altogether.
Visit the town of Vela Luka, situated in a deep bay, have a drink of Pošip, Plavac or Admiral wines.
Dubrovnik is capable meeting even the finest expectations from its visitors. The town of museums and festivals, town of taverns and restaurants, a place of
moderate Mediterranean climate and beautiful landscapes truly confirms the famous quote by Irish writer Bernard Shaw: "Those
who seek heaven on Earth must come to Dubrovnik". You will truly feel special staying at any one of the hotels in
Dubrovnik, drinking coffee while enjoying the view of Lovrijenac, one of the towers in Dubrovnik, where the now
legendary “Hamlet” is performed as part of the Dubrovnik Summer Games Festival or tasting rozata, a delicious, traditional dessert. Visit Excelsior Hotel Dubrovnik
