Dubrovnik-Neretva County travel guide

Historic Walking Areas · Islands · Landmarks
As the "Pearl of the Adriatic," Dubrovnik-Neretva County boasts a slender, diverse coastline separated from inland areas by a mountain range and split at Neum by the state border with Bosnia and Herzegovina. Many powerful empires and sea fleets have battled in this region during its boisterous history--the Byzantines, Saracens, Croats, Venetians, as well as Osman, Roman-Germanic, Hapsburg, and Napoleonic empires all left their mark on the land. The preserved white-stone defensive walls of Dubrovnik, the county seat, inspired writer George Bernard Shaw to call it "paradise on Earth" and have helped the city to retain its independence for centuries. Today the city's old town is a World Heritage Site, with narrow, steep medieval alleys, churches, Baroque palaces, and fountains. Along the county's seashore, drink in the series of islands, some of which feature national parks.
