Which Local Dishes Would You Recommend Trying?
Foodies will find themselves on a culinary journey with delicacies such as eel and frog stew on the menu. With a wealth of taverns and restaurants decorating the county, you’ll soon discover our finest dishes. From hearty game recipes to the special wild duck, known as ‘liska’ and if you head towards Ston, there’s the freshest oysters, mussels and gourmet fish waiting.
However during your stay, you must try prosciutto, cheese in oil, meat and cabbage stew from restaurants in Zupa Dubrovnik and Konavle.
Which Areas Would You Recommend Staying In?
For those who don’t mind late night noise or who want to be amidst all the action, getaways inside the city walls are a must. Everything you need is at your fingertips from major attractions to quirky bars and so much more. However, it’s a pedestrian zone so please be cautious that there’s a lot of stairs. There’s also the option to stay in the city of Dubrovnik but outside the walls, if you’d prefer a quieter atmosphere.
Seeking pure tranquility? We would suggest staying at one of the islands Mljet, Korcula Lastovo and the Elafiti archipelagos. Or, in the countryside a few kilometres out of Dubrovnik at Slano, Peninsula Peljesac, Zupa dubrovacka, Konavle region.
