Your flight to Dubrovnik – Adriatic at its best
Fly with Lufthansa to Dubrovnik for a holiday straight out of your dreams. The city on the Adriatic coast is known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic” and combines everything you can wish for: beautiful beaches, constant sunshine, a glistening blue sea and a city that is part of the UNESCO world heritage. "Those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik” George Bernhard Shaw wrote in 1929.
You are standing in King’s LandingThe famous fantasy epic “Game of Thrones” used the sights of Dubrovnik for the city of Kings Landing, this made the city a favourite destination for the millions of fans of the show. You can have a special tour to see all the places and sights used for game of Thrones. The real history of Dubrovnik is at least as interesting as the fantasy story. For centuries it was called Ragusa, a free republic, city state and ruler of the Mediterranean trade routes. The impressive city walls with its 16 watchtowers is still complete and shows a city that is well fortified against attackers. The most famous street in Dubrovnik is the Stradun, the wide lane in white limestone that cuts the old town in two halves since 1468. Stroll down the street to see the Big Fountain of Onofrio and St. Saviour Church, the Rector's Palace, the Sponza Palace and the Franciscan Monastery from the 14th century.
Beaches, mountains, islands and the seaLong and sun-soaked days on the beach are no problem around here, you can choose between numerous sand and gravel beaches. The island of Lokrum in front of the city features many beaches including a nudist area, a salt lake and a botanical garden featuring plants from Australia and America. For a breath-taking view over the sea, the city and the islands you can take a funicular to get on the 400 m high mountain Srd. Treat yourself to the Dalmatian kitchen and try the local specialties like Almatinski Pršut, a lightly smoked ham, or Brodet od riba, a fish stew. The sunny climate allows excellent wine to grow in the area, make a tour through the local wineries and bring some home as a souvenir for the taste buds. Enjoy your Lufthansa flight and your holidays in Dubrovnik!
