A Short Break to Cavtat, near Dubrovnik
Saturday 23 April 2022 (5 Days)
Today, Cavtat is a popular tourist destination and makes an ideal short break near Dubrovnik. The seafront is filled with shops and restaurants. A ferry boat connects the town to neighbouring Mlini and Dubrovnik. This is definitely a more relaxing place to stay than to Dubrovnik city break
Beyond doubt, Croatia's "pearl of the Adriatic" Dubrovnik is breathtakingly beautiful - a jewel encased by city walls and, beyond them, by the unbroken blue of the sea. But its opulence can be overwhelming. So we have chosen the small harbour town of Cavtat to base our stay, less than 45 minutes by boat or bus from central Dubrovnik. Here you will have the best of both worlds. You can enjoy the relaxed rhythm of life in a colourful waterfront community, while knowing that you can sample the attractions of Dubrovnik whenever you like (connecting services run every half hour or so).
Cavtat is a fascinating and cultured destination in itself and makes a holiday in Cavtat a fantastic choice. Throughout the last century it was an exclusive retreat for wealthy Croatians (many of whom built mansions there), as well as a thriving hub for working artists. But it is only relatively recently - following the end of the disastrous siege of Dubrovnik in the early 1990s - that the town has begun to develop as a resort for foreign tourists.
Cavtat perches on the saddle of a wooded peninsula set between two bays, so you're never more than moments from the water.. A wide promenade, fringed with palm trees, runs along the harbour front.
Cobbled streets with traditional red-roofed brownstone houses climb back from the blue of the waterfront. The narrow stairways between the opposite sides of each street are smothered in clouds of white, mauve and pink blossoms. But most of all, Cavtat is about light. In the daytime, the town shimmers. In the evening, clouds in the night sky are outlined in a glow of copper and silver, looking for all the world like strange new countries on a mysterious old map. It's no wonder that the place has attracted so many artists.
So if you have never been to Croatia then a short break in Cavtat is an ideal place to start
