Dubrovnik in autumn might just be what you need right now! Here are things to see & do while visiting Dubrovnik in September:
OLD CITY OF DUBROVNIK
Walking around the Old City of Dubrovnik is magical. With its UNESCO World Heritage Site status there is so much to see, from the walking the famous old walls and a stroll down Stradun, to checking out the outstanding old walls, palaces, theatres, churches, museums and galleries. Add a little Dubrovnik culture into the mix, including the city's remarkable painters, and there you have a perfect recipe for an inspiring break on the Adriatic Coast.
SCENTS AND FLAVOURS OF AUTUMN
Dubrovnik is a gourmet paradise, a combination of traditional recipes and a passion for the freshest local produce. The basic concept is very simple: the freshest, seasonal local ingredients, which ensure that different specialities occur at different types of the year; simple recipes; and traditional home cooking, with recipes passed down from generation to generation. Given its proximity to the sea, it is perhaps no surprise that seafood dominates many menus in Dubrovnik, however meat lovers will also be in heaven. Great news for all food lovers – joins us for Good Food Festival, a gastronomic treat that will take place from 24th to the 27th of September 2020.
OFF THE GRID (TRSTENO)
Dubrovnik and its surroundings are blessed with seemingly unlimited natural treasures. Did you know that over 10% of Croatia is allocated to nature and national parks? One of the more popular excursions, just a short distance from the hotel is the oldest arboretum in all Europe, the only one of the Croatian coast, and a wonderful way to escape the crowds, stroll in a stunning haven of natural beauty, while enjoying the heritage and nature of the fabulous Trsteno Arboretum.
BEYOND THE FAMED WALLS (ELAPHITE ISLANDS)
A true hidden Dalmatian voyage of discovery! The region is blessed with some truly spectacular islands within easy reach. The Elaphite islands are a popular escape from the tourist crowds best known for the wide array of palm tree species which grow on the island, but is also an island where a variety of fruits thrive, including figs, vines, carob, olives, almonds, oranges and other citrus fruit. The Adriatic is ideal for swimming, but there is so much more on offer in one of the cleanest seas in the world. It is one of the great sailing paradises of Europe, and other sports, such as windsurfing and kayaking are growing in popularity.
The very first time you lay your eyes on the remarkable Old City of Dubrovnik you may have the impression that you are gazing onto a film set.

As you explore the ancient old town, enjoy views of the red-roofed skyline that is recognized as the Capital of the Seven Kingdoms. Why not walk around the historic streets and enjoy a themed film tour – it a perfect wrap of your autumn adventure in Dubrovnik!
