DUBROVNIK AREA INFORMATION

City of Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is a small and picturesque coastal city on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. It is famous for its beautiful Old Town, which is over 1000 years old, well preserved and really worth exploring. We hope that you will discover all the interesting history and habits, beautiful nature of the area, charming islands, beaches and unique culture Dubrovnik has to offer.

Infrastructure and architecture are quite special and different: everything is smaller, streets are narrower and houses are often made of stone to adjust to the conditions and geography of the area. Plus, everything is accessible by walking! Dubrovnik is a place where history and tradition collide with modern 21st century living. We hope you’ll enjoy the slow lifestyle of this part of the world.

The surrounding area is rich with charming little towns and villages full of history and compelling details. There are numerous beautiful little islands and the crystal clean sea is excellent for swimming. 

People are very laid back due to the slow lifestyle: they definitely know how to take a minute to enjoy life! The first time you experience ‘’fjaka’’ (a slang word for a sleepy and relaxed state of body and mind with no aspiration to do anything; not to be confused with laziness) you will begin to understand the local lifestyle and the mindset.

 

Included in the conference program is a walking guided tour of the Old Town of Dubrovnik so you will get to see the beautiful monuments and museum of the City along with information about each of the places. One piece of advice: make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes for this tour!

 

 

Another tour included in our conference program: A half-day tour to visit the Peljesac peninsula and its world famous Town of Ston.

By its economic and strategic significance, Ston was one of the most important towns in the Dubrovnik Republic. This is confirmed by the monumental walls, constructed between the 14th and 15th centuries, and extending over 5 kilometres in length and measuring 5-10 metres in height. The walls were fortified by forty towers and bastions. In the 14th century, the construction of Mali (Little) and Veliki (Ston) began, one on each side of the isthmus, which was of great importance for the defence of Pelješac and the entire western section of the Republic.

A large natural salt works is located at the base of the Ston Channel, where sea salt has been produced for centuries – a precious monopoly product of the Dubrovnik Republic. The Mali Ston Channel, at Bistrina, is the location of a shellfish farm. There is also a lovely islet called the ‘Island of Life’.
