Croatia & Montenegro City Break Holiday

Croatia & Montenegro City Break Holiday

Croatia is emerging as a popular destination offering an alternative to the usual European city break options. We have developed a city break package that enables you to visit Dubrovnik & Montenegro and experience the culture, history and breath-taking beauty of these countries.


“If you are interested in exploring a little more of Croatia and Montenegro then our Fly-Drive holiday could be just the thing: Croatia & Montenegro Fly-Drive Holiday

We have provided a general itinerary where you will be based in Dubrovnik (we recommend a minimum of 4 nights) and enjoy a full day excursion to Montenego. The Montenegro trip takes place on a Thursday. If your dates of travel do not include a thursday we are pleased to offer a Cruise of the Dubrovnik Islands at no additional charge. It is possible to extend your holiday to include extra nights and if you have any particular requirements for your holiday just let us know in the comments section of the enquiry form.


Croatia

The popularity of Croatia as a destination continues to grow from strength to strength and there are many good reasons for this.

From the 1950’s the former Yugoslavia was the holiday destination that allowed millions of British to have their first taste of going abroad.

By the end of the 1980’s, before the break-up of Yugoslavia, the country was the UK’s most popular overseas holiday destination. Beach holidays will always be popular but these days we are always looking for bargain holidays and we are more open to experiencing the culture of a foreign destination.

Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik – an elite destination and one of the most beautiful towns in the Mediterranean. George Bernard Shaw famously said “those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik and find it”. Dubrovnik has a wealth of architecture with stunning sculptural detail and has spectacular churches, monasteries, museums and fountains for you to while away the hours in this splendid city.

The Old Town and its many sights (including the well-preserved city walls along which you can walk) is one of the top attractions here. If you are visiting in the summer, do not miss the world-renowned Dubrovnik Summer Festival, with music, theatre and dance performances.

Why not enjoy amazing breathtaking views of the Old Town and Elaphiti Islands by taking a ride on Dubrovnik's Cable Car. The best views of Dubrovnik can be obtained on a ride to the top of Mount Srdj.



During your stay in Dubrovnik, we have included a day trip to Montenegro (Thursdays) OR a Dubrovnik Island Cruise (Tuesday or Friday)

Montenegro

From Dubrovnik cross the border into Montenegro. (You will need your passport)

Nowhere else can you find so much natural beauty interlaced with such a rich historical and cultural heritage like in Montenegro.

Mild beaches, clear waters and gorgeous mountains that plunge into the sea will greet you upon your arrival to the Gulf of Kotor. Ringed in the mountains, the innermost bays of the Gulf, Risan and Kotor, are the earliest inhabited areas with evidences of civilization dating from Illyrian, Roman and early Christian periods.

In our quest for traces and memories of past times, we will be visiting the town of Risan with a Roman villa and its exceptionally well preserved mosaics from the 2d and 3d century AD; a short boat ride from the baroque shore town of Perast will take us to one of the two islets in the Bay to visit the Church of Our Lady of the Rocks with one of the finest collections of wall paintings in this part of Europe.

In the UNESCO-protected town of Kotor enjoy a guided tour through one of the best preserved medieval old towns on the Adriatic and visit the 12th century Cathedral of St Tryphon with its wonderful collection of sacral art.

Finally, enjoy the opportunity to make your own memories during your free time in Kotor!


OR


Dubrovnik Island Cruise

Just like the streets of Dubrovnik were not built to be seen by carriage but by foot it is certain that the best views of the Dubrovnik region are from the sea. The historical Galleon is certainly the best stage for such a scenery. During this cruise you will see the three most beautiful islands of the Dubrovnik archipelago - Koloeep, Lopud and Šipan commonly known as the Elafiti islands. The old legend of the islands is hidden in it's name - about the old Greeks hunting for deer and subsequently naming the islands the Deer islands.

Green islands, with gardens full of oranges and lemons and lovely seashore landscapes, charming and picturesque villages with harmonious architecture of summer manors; old seaman's houses and little votive churches. Visit all the three Elaphite islands and enjoy your lunch of grilled fish and wine while being entertained by our local musicians.

About 4* Lapad Hotel in Dubrovnik

The four star Hotel Lapad is definitely one of the symbols of Dubrovnik, not just as a prestigious and valuable tourist destination, but also due to the fact that the hotel is one of the oldest hotels in the city. With its long and rich history the Hotel Lapad has managed to keep and preserve tradition memories of an ancient time, of another Dubrovnik.

Construction of the hotel began in 1912 and it was officially opened in 1914. The Victorian facade of the hotel has always been its distinctive symbol. Hotel Lapad is one of the few hotels that has preserved its original appearance and has been perfectly and extensively adapted with all of the advantages of contemporary times. In its two wings, superior and classic, there are 157 rooms and 6 suites. All our rooms are furnished and equipped to the highest standards required by a modern four star hotel. Today's superior wing is a century-old building that has, since the opening day until now, only been used as a hotel.

In 1986 the hotel increased its capacity and the classic wing was constructed with 6 floors in a cascading style. With then 193 rooms it was among the largest hotels in the city. During the Homeland War, the hotel housed refugees from Dubrovnik and the surrounding region. The first guest after the war arrived in 1993. In the next few years, after the war, Croatian tourism started to rise slowly from the ashes and Hotel Lapad, year after year, received more satisfied guests.

In 2007 the time had come for Hotel Lapad to rise to an even higher level and restoration started which when completed meant that the hotel had a new four star modern expression. From season to season, this hotel recorded excellent tourist results, which led to numerous awards in recent years based on the opinions and experiences of guests. Many of our visitors come back again and again, thus proving that commitment, passion for work, professionalism and teamwork in Hotel Lapad are a great combination for excellent service.
