Dubrovnik, das Zentrum der südlichsten dalmatinischen Region und deren bekanntester Vertreter, ist der Star der prestigeträchtigen weltbekannten Magazine und führt die Liste der schönsten Städte der Welt an. Zu Besuch und auf der Suche nach Inspiration kommen Jahr für Jahr Künstler, Mitglieder von Königsfamilien und globale Jetsetter. Dubrovnik gehört ihnen, zugleich aber auch all denen, die nur einmal einen Besuch abgestattet haben. Es ist ganz einfach, Dubrovnik und Sie verbinden nach dem ersten Besuch dieselben Fäden…
“Wer das Paradies auf Erden sucht, sollte nach Dubrovnik kommen“. Bezaubert von der Stadt, schrieb dies George Bernard Shaw anlässlich seines Besuchs. Die gut erhaltenen Mauern umgeben die Stadt in einer ununterbrochenen Länge von 1940 Metern. Der Ort findet im In- und Ausland nicht seinesgleichen, was ihm den Titel „Perle der Adria“ einbrachte, und er wurde unter den Schutz der UNESCO gestellt. Dubrovnik, in Jahrhunderten von den besten Baumeistern und Künstlern erbaut, liegt im äußersten Süden Kroatiens, in einem warmen mediterranen Klima. Hier gedeiht nicht nur mediterrane, sondern auch subtropische Vegetation: duftende Zitronen, Orangen und Mandarinen, üppige Palmen und Agaven in den Renaissance-Parks und blühenden Gärten der mittelalterlichen Steinpaläste und in den abgeschiedenen Klöstern
