The city is located in the southern part of Croatia on the Dalmatian coast on the Adriatic Sea.
Dubrovnik is known for its public beaches, the Arboretum Trsteno, the Sponza and Rector’s palaces, the Franciscan Church and Monastery and other cultural heritage. It has also served as a filming site for the popular HBO series Game of Thrones, which has helped to massively increase tourism to the city, resulting in a busier airport.
