5 Things you Didn’t Know About Dubrovnik, Croatia

By Deborah Elias, March 27, 2017

Perfectly positioned in the Adriatic Sea and protected by UNESCO World Heritage, Dubrovnik, Croatia, is a treasure and a must-visit destination for incentive groups. Almost completely destroyed during the Cold War, the mostly rebuilt town blends its rich history with a modern presence, attracting tourists and meetings alike. Here are five reasons planners are choosing Dubrovnik for their events.

1. It’s accessible.

Traveling to Dubrovnik is getting easier with increasing direct flights from many European cities and ferryboats from neighboring Italy. A scenic bus ride from Italy or Greece is also an option (and probably the best one).

2. Lodging is plentiful.

As a conference and incentive city, Dubrovnik has numerous lodging options from four- and five-star hotels, many of which overlook the sea. Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Dubrovnik Sun Gardens is a standout five-star resort with 201 rooms and suites and meeting venues for up to 1,000 guests. With their unique ambiance, venues like Revelin Fortress, Marin Drzic Theatre, Sponza Palace and Rector’s Palace also serve as great locations for special events.

3. It provides a learning experience.

Aside from tourism, olive oil production is a key industry for the city of Dubrovnik. The oil is mostly produced at large-scale farms with industrial presses, but small family farms are available to groups. These homesteads teach how oil was pressed in ancient times—when horses had to turn the machines—and dish up oil samples on salads and breads.
