Croatia occupies the largest area of the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea which, as a part of the Mediterranean Sea, penetrates deep into the European continent. The narrow Dinara Mountain Range separates the country’s Mediterranean region from its central European continental section, which spans from the easterly edges of the Alps in the north west to the shores of the Danube in the East, encompassing the southern part of the fertile Pannonian lowlands.
With its unique political and cultural history and world-renowned buildings, it’s no wonder Dubrovnik is a UNESCO heritage site. As one of the most attractive and best-known cities in the Mediterranean, its exquisite natural beauty and well-preserved heritage are also enhanced by an exceptional range of tourist facilities and services.
As the historical heart of the island of the same name, the city of Korčula is one of the best preserved medieval towns on the Mediterranean. The birthplace of Marco Polo, it boasts a heritage rich in history, architecture and culture.
Dubrovnik Summer Festival
Dubrovnik Summer Festival was first held in 1956. Being the oldest cultural festival in Croatia, its history mandates a rich and vibrant program in the fields of theater, ballet, classic music and opera. Naturally, the festival is loved equally across Europe and further, with regular attendees traveling across the world to enjoy Dubrovnik's sea, landscapes and food during the summer in addition to attending the festival.
The beautiful city of Dubrovnik plays an important role for the festival: its ancient walls and surroundings are the stage to the events, and not one bit less important than the theater performances themselves. Classic theater and ballet productions are held on the town streets and squares, making the Dubrovnik deeply immersed in the festival.
Dubrovnik Summer Festival always hosts the world's most famous composers, soloists and orchestras.
