Celebs love Dubrovnik. Just ask Ashley Judd, Beyonce and Jay Z, Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise, Owen Wilson, Jeremy Irons to name a few. And why wouldn’t they love Dubrovnik. It is the place on the map for A-list celebrities. It’s not just in recent years. In the ’70s, Richard Burton and Elisabeth Taylor loved the Excelsior Hotel and have spent their time here. It’s understandable. Apart from rich scenery, and historical landmarks there’s the emerald-colour Adriatic sea that just calls you to dip your toes in it. Or dock a yacht.
Emerald Adriatic sea. Complemented by its fine beaches, lovely weather and so much more just makes you fantasise about visiting this place. Here’s a photo.
Wild and pretty
The temperature of the Adriatic sea is lovely 24 °C (75 °F), and the wonderful, tingling sensation of the cooling water that touches your skin after you’ve been tanning, makes you not want to go out. Its salinity is just right, your skin doesn’t itch afterwards, it’s soft and smells of sea. No jellyfish, big waves (sorry surfers, not in Dubrovnik), or garbage, just clean, fresh, cooling and soothing water of the Adriatic sea.

Old Town Dubrovnik
The refugees from Epidaurus in Greece have settled in today’s Croatia and founded Dubrovnik in the 7th Century. Today, this beautiful city is a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its historical significance.
As soon as you cross over the drawbridge and walk through the Pile Gate you will find yourself entering an ancient city that is brimming with astonishing architecture; surrounded by the Mediterranean on one side, and stunning walls on the other.
Take a walk along the city walls which surround the Old City. It’s just a couple of hours and it offers a stunning view of the Dalmatian Coast and a dazzling view of the city. Fort Lovrijenac is one of the sights that can be seen from the wall, it is an amazing structure built on an rocky outcropping. It is located just outside the Western wall of the Old Town.
