If planning a break that entails sun and historical attractions you need to provide serious consideration to reserving villas in Dubrovnik.

The Croatian city might not be as well called a tourist destination for Britons as many locations in Spain, Italy and France, but that is set to change during the upcoming few decades. Called the Pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik offers amazing beaches, water sports as well as many historical sights as you can expect to pack to any vacation.

Its most bizarre features are the old city and fortified walls, that have survived centuries of battle relatively undamaged and have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site certification. Many of the older buildings and portions of the ramparts would be the very best examples of the kind available in Europe and provide a true insight to the city’s past.

There’s thought to have been a settlement on this site as the 7th century, but it didn’t turn into an important city before the formation of the Republic of Ragusa at 1358. The prosperity produced from its subsequent standing as a trading port helped to finance many of the attractions visitors into the Old City today enjoy.

Among the very best starting points when researching Dubrovnik is a wander around town walls. They’re 22 metres high in places and will supply you with a few of the most memorable views you may notice throughout Ferienhaus in Kroatien.

Your walk round the ramparts will require you into the forts of St John’s and Minceta, and 16 lookout towers scattered around town. You’ll need to buy a ticket to obtain entry to the walls, but in addition, it includes entrance into the imposing Lovrjenac coastal fort that helped to shield Dubrovnik from Venetian forces.
