Hire A Private Jet To Dubrovnik
Book a private jet to Dubrovnik, Croatia’s most popular tourist destination, located in the southern part of Croatia, right in front of the Adriatic Sea. The medieval town has been reconstructed after the earthquake of 1667, consisting of massive stone walls that encircle the Old Town. The town still preserves its medieval heritage with churches and public buildings perfectly blending with the stone houses. What is more, Dubrovnik consists of many well-preserved buildings ranging from baroque to renaissance and gothic.
Many tourists embark on a journey on the pedestrianized Stradun which is paved with limestone and consists of many restaurants and shops. The port in Dubrovnik gives a great opportunity to escape. You can always visit the islands of the Croatian Adriatic such as Koločep, Lopud and Šipan. Slightly further into the sea, you can visit the island of Mljet which will definitely take your breath away. Also, Dubrovnik can be visited at any time of the year. However, the busiest periods for this destination are spring and summer. That is when the city becomes alive, with cafes and restaurants remaining well packed into the night.
Things To Do In Dubrovnik
Sea kayaking is one of the most popular activities to do whilst in Dubrovnik. You can always see the paddlers pulling into the beach of Banje during the busy periods as it’s the city’s most characteristic sight. If you’re looking to arrange a group excursion, there will be one-person kayaks available to rent. You can always embark on a journey that is led by an instructor whilst sightseeing the walled city and the surrounding islands. If you’re worried about the experience of kayaking, it will not be a problem. The excursion is carried out at a gentle pace, enough to suit most people. Dubrovnik offers half-day excursions around the walls of the city and the island of Lokrum. Also, full-day excursions are available to the islands of Lopud, Šipan and Koločep which are more distant.
Food And Drink
Seafood lovers will absolutely love the food in Dubrovnik as it offers a variety of different dishes, freshly caught in the Adriatic sea. Firstly, the islands of Mljet and Elaphite are rich in shellfish, squid and lobster. Secondly, you will see oysters on almost every local restaurant menu. You can always enquire about some of the signature dishes of Croatia such as Šporki makaruli (dirty macaroni) or rozata, a vanilla-flavoured custard dessert. Finally, wine is also popular in Dubrovnik as the vineyards located in Konavle produce red wines of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Plavac varieties.
The City Walls
Walking around the battlements of the medieval city walls is an experience you definitely do not want to miss. The 2 km city walls encircle the old town whilst revealing the picturesque views of the old town’s terracotta rooftops and the sea. Interestingly, the city walls have been built in the 13th century to protect the city from the outside world. Furthermore, you will be able to access the city walls through a flight of stone steps as you enter the town through Pile Gate. In order to prevent overcrowding in the summer, the number of daily visitors is limited so having a booking in advance is highly recommended. However, during less busy seasons such as winter, it should not be a problem. Why not charter a private jet to Dubrovnik and explore the city walls with your family and friends?
Dubrovnik used to be a self-governing republic called Ragusa until 1808. The republic was governed by choosing a different citizen each month by the local councillors, to be a Rector. The reason for this was to prevent one person from becoming too powerful. The Rector would live on the upper floor of the Gothic-Renaissance Rector’s Palace, whilst in the office. Nowadays, tourists from all over the world are given an opportunity to see how local aristocrats once lived as it has been converted into the Cultural History Museum. Of course, the tourists will be able to admire lavish costumes, weapons, Baroque furniture and gilt-framed oil paintings.
