DUBROVNIK TOURIST BOARD
7 reasons to choose Dubrovnik for the organization of meetings and incentives
1. A combination of history, natural beauty and modern amenities
The rich historical and cultural heritage of this thousand-year-old city has made Dubrovnik a European cultural centre recognized even by UNESCO, which included it in its list of World Heritage Sites in 1979. Historical heritage is intertwined with contemporary trends and culture in everyday life. Every summer, Dubrovnik is visited by the most popular statesmen, athletes and stars, and it is also a backdrop for the popular film industry and hosts countless sporting and cultural events. Located on the beautiful southern coast of the eastern Adriatic Dubrovnik is adorned with a mild Mediterranean climate that brings an average of 2,600 sunny hours a year to this destination.
2. Only 2 hours away by plane from the most important European cities
Dubrovnik Airport is only 22 km from the city, and Dubrovnik has connections with the most important European metropolises directly, but also via Zagreb. The average flight time from prominent European cities to Dubrovnik is one to two hours.
The year 2022 was marked by the opening of the Pelješac Bridge which made Dubrovnik more accessible by road and better connected with the rest of Croatia, and thus with Europe.
3. The largest hotel and conference facilities in Croatia and unique event spaces
Large hotel chains and world-renowned brands such as Rixos, Hilton, Valamar, Adriatic Luxury Hotels, Sheraton and Dubrovnik Sun Gardens can host up to 1,200 participants in their meetings halls and rooms with top-quality service with 4 or 5 stars, adapted to the needs of each client and each guest. Dubrovnik also has the most unique and perhaps the most beautiful historical spaces for the organization of conferences and events like the Revelin and Lovrjenac fortresses, the monastery of St. Clare, Sponza Palace, Rector’s Palace, Marin Držić Theatre, International Centre of Croatian Universities and the unique Lazareti.
4. Expert and professional support in the organization of events

5. Original flavours of Mediterranean cuisine and top local wines
The wealth of the sea, the Mediterranean mild climate, and vegetation, as well as the historical activity of the people of Dubrovnik as world navigators who brought new plants from distant lands, led to the fact that Dubrovnik today has an extremely rich wine and gastronomic offer based on healthy and fresh groceries.
6. A diverse selection of incentive activities
