    Get ready to gasp at Dubrovnik

    Breathtaking might sound like a cliche but Dubrovnik really will leave you breathless. It smacks of fantasy novels, the way it perches on its row of ribbed-rock cliffs above the rolling Adriatic Sea. Red-tiled towers and mighty medieval fortresses rise above the concentric walls, casting their crenulated shadows over bustling Stradun, the main pedestrian street, and its Balkan tavernas. With such history at your fingertips, a Dubrovnik holiday rental in the midst of the UNESCO Old Town could be a good idea. Alternatively, a perfect beach-side pad or pool-ready villa might be waiting in the hills.

    Swims in castle shadows in Dubrovnik

    Dubrovnik holiday rentals by the beach are plentiful. As the Lapad Peninsula juts out from the marble-clad Old Town, it gives way to pebble coves where you can swim in the shadow of the city's centuries-old citadel. In the other direction is sandy Banje, home to the transparent Adriatic sea and locals playing traditional beach football, Picigin. Kayaking and yachting are all on the menu for those who want to get a glimpse of the town from the water, while views from above can be had by hopping on the Dubrovnik Cable Car up to Mount Srd.

    Delving into Dubrovnik's past

    A journey through Dubrovnik's rich past and awesome historical sights usually starts with a walk around the 1.2-mile length of the medieval walls. As you climb from keep to tower to keep, you'll spy out the people-filled souvenir shops of Stradun – the Old Town's main street – below. And talking of below, that area of weathered piazzas and churches is laden with excellent museums. There's the Rector's Palace Cultural History Museum and its vaulted rooms with relics from the Ragusan Republic. Or, admire the Gothic and Renaissance facade of the Sponza Palace, now home to the Dubrovnik city archives.

    Lightning storms and scorching sun in Dubrovnik

    Because Dubrovnik fuses the subtropical and the Mediterranean, its climate is a little more unsettled than other Croatian cities up north. Summers can get humid and muggy with the mercury sometimes even crashing over 35 degrees in the day. There can also be occasional thunderstorms rocking the Dinaric mountains and the Adriatic in the warm months between June and August. Still, that remains the most popular time to holiday, while spring – in April and May – and autumn – in September – are good times to seek Dubrovnik holiday rentals if you're eager to dodge the crowds.

    Dubrovnik's outstanding beauty

    With the low peak of Mount Srd claiming the horizon to the east, Dubrovnik is hemmed into a small area between the hills and the cliffs and coves along the southern Adriatic Sea. It's a truly handsome place, what with the Lapad Peninsula jutting out into the waters with its pebbly coves and pine-clad hills just a stone's throw from the Old Town. Go north and you'll come to the Rijeka Dubrovacka – a wide fjord that intersects the gentle slopes of Croatian hills. Hop on a ferry and you can get to Lokrum Island, to stroll wooded paths and encounter wild birds in the forests.
