Dubrovnik, Croatia

The Pearl Of The Adriatic, That Iconic, Picture-Perfect & Overrun Walled Marble & Baroque Extravaganza


”It’s historic, but about the only discernible purpose it serves today is to appease tourists, a sole function it fulfills with aplomb. Make no mistake, and regardless of the time of year you drop by, you won’t be alone sampling the so-called Pearl of The Adriatic. But sample it you must, at least once in your lifetime.”

Dubrovnik, Croatia

There’s no doubt about it – Dubrovnik is rather special, rather unique. It’s a walled marble & baroque architectural extravaganza the likes of which you’ve probably never seen before. It’s iconic & almost every inch of it is picture-perfect. It’s historic, but about the only discernible purpose it serves today is to appease tourists, a sole function it fulfills with aplomb. Make no mistake, and regardless of the time of year you drop by, you won’t be alone sampling the so-called Pearl of The Adriatic. But sample it you must, at least once in your lifetime.
