Dubrovnik’s Old Town
Dubrovnik’s historic core is the reason why English poet Lord Byron nicknamed the city the “pearl of the Adriatic.” Protected as a UNESCO site in 1979, its marble streets are lined with stunning medieval architecture enclosed by ancient walls which once helped defend it from invaders. The best Croatia cruises include a guided sightseeing tour that will bring you along its main street known as Stradun where you’ll be able to discover iconic places like Dubrovnik Cathedral, one of the oldest pharmacies in Europe founded in 1317, and Rector’s Palace which was spotlighted in the hit TV series “Game of Thrones.” You may have time on your own to take a stroll atop the city walls or ride the cable car to the top of Mount Srd for a bird’s-eye view over the red-tiled roofs of the city and the turquoise waters of the Adriatic.

Cathedral of St. James, Sibenik
Cruises in Croatia often include a tour through medieval Sibenik, established more than a thousand years ago. This is the gateway to waterfall-filled Krka National Park and the home of one of the most important and largest Gothic-Renaissance cathedrals, the 15th-century Cathedral of St. James, listed as a UNESCO site in 2000. It reflects influences from Dalmatia, Tuscany and Northern Italy, with its most notable exterior feature the 71 life-sized heads sculpted of ordinary citizens, soldiers, fishermen and peasants that are remarkably realistic.
