Dubrovnik: The Pearl of the Adriatic

Dubrovnik, a city on the Adriatic Sea in southern Croatia, is one of the best places to visit in August. The weather is warm and dry, with an average of only 5.1 rainy days. The temperature usually stays in the low 80s in the afternoon.

Dubrovnik offers plenty of historical experience to provide visitors, such as a trip down the Danube to an afternoon sipping coffee at a beachside cafe. However, leave Dubrovnik, and you will find several other reasons to go to Croatia in August.

During the summer, you can enjoy the benefits of hot air ballooning and stroll along the beautiful beaches. Engaging in these activities is a great way to escape crowded tourist attractions to visit natural beauty in its purest form.

Summer months also afford tourists a chance to experience a bit of culture, too. In summer, you can attend concerts and dance concerts organized by local musicians or take a walk through the market to taste a variety of local produce.

Some hotels offer discounts for summer months: you can save on airfare, accommodations, and spa treatments. If you are staying near Dubrovnik, you can visit the Hotel Bellevue Dubrovnik. This five-star luxury resort sits on a cliff overlooking the Adriatic Sea. It has a relaxing pool, sauna, and steam baths.

Most Popular Place in Croatia

Dubrovnik is a beautifully maintained walled city population with just under a population of 40,000. Since 1979, it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

During the Middle Ages, it was the only city in all of Adriatic. Because of its skilled diplomacy and wealth, the city continued to develop into what it is today.

Dubrovnik is one of Croatia’s most popular tourist attractions, making it the go-to vacation spot for many travelers. Go for a stroll around the ancient village to see all the sights the city has to offer. Beat the August heat by visiting the walls in the late afternoon or early morning.


If you’ve watched the “Game of Thrones”, you will recognize many places, such as Qarth and Kings Landing. Many of the scenes were filmed on the City Walls, and Fort Lovrijenac’s beach and pier. Also, travel Dubrovnik’s main thoroughfare or Rector’s Palace staircase from Stradun, where you can have a drink and absorb your surroundings as if you took a trip back in time. Finish with dinner at one of the old town’s cafes.

For a splendid view of the town, check out Mount Srđ, which is a fortress and small historical museum. You can walk up the winding footpath to the fort or take a cable car. It is a problematic rocky path, so be sure to dress appropriately and wear hiking shoes. Once at the top, you can view the old town and the sea. Relax and have a drink at the café and take the cable car down.

Enjoy this medieval town for all his beauty, history, culture, and good food. Relax on the beach and appreciate the ability to see such a great environment.
