One of the top world's destinations in 2010 was Dubrovnik, the city situated in the south of the Republic of Croatia that lies just across the Adriatic coast of Italy. In springtime, the temperatures are warm but not too hot like in summer. And although it's a touristic target all year long, the accommodation is cheaper off-season and there'll be less creasing in the streets. However, if you want to see the best of it, wait until summer.
The city itself has a rich history, from the time of Romans, but what you'll see today is mostly medieval. Dubrovnik has that stone architecture, narrow streets, palaces and town squares typical for Adriatic coast towns. You might also find yourself tempted to try out local cuisine. Be watchful, the prices in summertime hit the roof!
