Dubrovnik is an old city on the Adriatic Sea coast in the extreme south of Croatia. It is one of the most prominent tourist resorts of the Mediterranean, a seaport and the center of the Dubrovnik-Neretva county. Its population was 43,770 in 2001.
Get around: The old town is completely pedestrianised and easily small enough to get around on foot - some of the streets are a little steep, though! If you are not staying in the Old Town its relatively simple to catch just about any bus as just about every one leads to the Old Town.
