Those who have been to Dubrovnik (or are fortunate enough to call it home) know it’s one of the best places to experience ancient architecture, panoramic sea views, mouthwatering cuisine and rich Eastern European culture in a single destination. However, until recently, it seems that our piece of paradise has been overshadowed by more famous travel destinations throughout Europe.

That’s why we’re proud to announce that Dubrovnik has gained some much-deserved recognition as one of the top luxury honeymoon destinations in the world. The travel experts at Canada’s leading online global travel agency, Flight Network, recently released their blog post, 22 of the World’s Best Honeymoon Destinations, and Dubrovnik stands tall at No. 10.

Flight Network’s team of intrepid travelers and industry experts scoured the globe for luxury travel destinations that provide all of the makings of a lavish honeymoon -- picture-perfect scenery, sumptuous accommodation options and an authentically romantic culture. The Flight Network team loved that honeymooners can wander the stone streets admiring baroque buildings and ancient forts of Old Town one day and lounge on the beach overlooking the Adriatic Sea the next.

“Whether you’re visiting the old forts, basking in the sun on the beach or riding the cable cars for a panoramic view — this city will never stop leaving you breathless,” the article stated.

Flight Network is urging travelers to put cliche European honeymoon destinations, like Paris and London, aside and experience the true history, culture and raw natural beauty of our seaside Croatian gem.

What are you waiting for? It’s time to start planning your romantic Eastern European escape and experience the awe-inspiring city rightfully known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic.”
