Aquarium Dubrovnik

Although a country with beautiful sea and sea rich in marine life, Croatia has very few aquariums. The best known is the one in Dubrovnik and it is also the most interesting one despite it’s small collection. Dubrovnik sea aquarium is situated within the walls of the medieval fortress St. Ivan (St. John’s) and it…

Dubrovnik Cable Car

Dubrovnik Cable Car (or aerial tram) is the latest attraction in Dubrovnik and is already a must do. Dubrovnik did have an older cable car in operation since 1969 but the facilities have been destroyed in the recent war in early 1990s. Completely restored, the operation started again in 2010.

Dining at Domino’s, Dubrovnik

There are numerous restaurants in the very Old Town ranging from small and cozy places to the big restaurants like Lakonda in the Old Town.

Villa Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik – Romance forever

As the season ended, we are already getting ready for 2011 with site inspections, guide selection and some (slight) expansion of services. One of the nicest part of that process is definitely staying at nice hotels that we recommend to our clients. Each hotel is personally inspected at least once a year and we sleep…

Arboretum Trsteno near Dubrovnik – www.tours-in-croatia.com

For years I have been trying to find some time to stop at this place and enjoy the gardens. Arboretum Trsteno is located some 30 km north of Dubrovnik and it is the best known arboretum in Croatia. This is a place of incredible beauty but not as nearly as popular as the rest of…
