History

Dubrovnik is a UNESCO World Heritage Site bursting with historical spots. Take a stroll around the old town which dates back to the 7th Century. Why not visit some of the cities ancient churches with stunning interiors that will take your breath away. We recommend the Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola or the Rector’s Palace.

Adventure

If you and your partner want to indulge in some activity on your honeymoon then Dubrovnik doesn’t disappoint! A popular choice is watersports on the sparkling Aegean Sea surrounding the city. This also means snorkelling and diving are a must, but if you want something slower paced why not try kayaking across the ocean. If relaxing is your primary goal for your trip, take a bottle of wine on a motorboat tour around the island for a hint of luxury.
