SHORT STAY UP TO 3-4 NIGHTS -IN THE MIDDLE OF NIGHTLIFE, EVENTS AND CROWDS
You should choose accommodation in the OLD TOWN- Dubrovnik city center. All most important happenings in the city are happening in the Old Town, inside the City Walls. During the day, Old Town is full of people and, during the nights, you can hear music from many cafe bars and restaurants. That liveliness, many street musicians and many people, give to this city the soul and one special charm.

If you would like to be close to the main Dubrovnik harbour in which arrives all the ships which come to Dubrovnik or close to Dubrovnik Main Bus Terminal, you should choose accommodation in GRUZ. From Gruz every day many tourists go by boat to the island of Mljet (large part of the island is National park and Croatia's greenest island) and also to the islands of Sipan, Lopud and Kolocep. The only fault of this part of the town is lack of beaches, so you should go to the closest parts of the town …
