    One highlight of Southern Dalmatia would be the majestic walled city of Dubrovnik, from 1358 to 1808 a rich and powerful independent republic, which exerted its economic and cultural influence over almost the entire region. Jutting out to sea and backed by rugged mountains, it's an unforgettable sight and now Croatia's most upmarket tourist destination.

    I love the city of Dubrovnik and their are islands all up and down its coast. I didn't get to do nearly enough exploring but I did take a day trip to 3 islands and between the views from the water and various islands I got to wander around it was great. I still remember how incredible the cloud formations in the sky were...I kept expecting a Roman God to descend from one...

    Not much is better than the Croatian coast, you can't go wrong! The views are spectacular and Dubrovnik is a real gem on the sea! I traveled here on my own and had a blast exploring!

    Dubrovnik was one of the best trips that I ever took. It was summer '12, and I had my friend's car, some spending money, and a lot of lust for adventure! I had a blast simply meandering the streets. The city of Dubrovnik has a phenomenal old feel to it -- made of stone, with narrow streets, lots of markets, and lots of stairs...! (It helps to be in shape -- you'll be doing a lot of climbing if you're explore the old city. There's a great zip line tour available; it enables you to get a bird's eye view of the city. I'd highly suggest checking into the visitor's center -- the people there are very helpful and give you pointers as to what's currently showing in theatres (Dubrovnik is renowned for its theatrical history), as well as where to go if you want to go snorkeling, bar hopping, etc.

    Some of the key reasons I travel are: a) meeting people from around the world, b) history, c) food, d) natural beauty, e) large bodies of water and f) great urban planning. I pretty much just described the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia. The ferry ride from the Istrian peninsula through the Adriatic islands (Hvar, Vis) and on down to Split and Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful spots in Europe. Some of these towns were Venetian outposts, so think stone walls, ancient homes, cobblestone streets, etc. When you disembark, families with rooms to let meet you at the ferry, and the price (and experience) is unbeatable.

    One of the undiscovered jewels of Europe, Croatia is simply beautiful. Filled with historical relics, beautiful nature, an amazing coastline --- and it is inexpensive!
