Dubrovnik is the most attractive destination on the whole Adriatic coast and the meeting place for the world elite. Year on year it is proving itself as a source of inspiration for artists, a venue favoured by members of royal families and the jet setters of the world. It belongs to them, but no more than it belongs to all those who came but once. It is quite simple really, one encounter is enough for those fine threads between you and this glorious city to be spun to last…
Dubrovnik, the centre of the southernmost region of Dalmatia and its most famous representative, is also the star on the front pages of many prestigious world magazines, as well as being at the very top of the scale of the most beautiful cities of the world.
When sailing into Dubrovnik look for mooring in the port of Gruž or at the ACI marina in Komolac. Gruž, the main passenger port in Dubrovnik, and the base of the Orsan sailing club, is the choice of those who want to be as close as possible to the old city. To get to the marina in Komolac you need to sail under the new bridge, whose elegant construction spans the entrance to the two mile deep bay of Rijeka dubrovačka. Gruž and Rijeka dubrovačka were the venues for the country villas of the Dubrovnik nobility, rand quite a few of those summer residences still stand alongtheir shores.
The Sorkočević villa, perhaps the most beautiful, is right next to the marina, itself one of the most beautiful on the Adriatic, located where the Ombla River ﬂows into the sea. So if you take a walk to Komolac you can experience a true river atmosphere. However long you may stay at the marina, you will never get enough of Dubrovnik. In its unique quality, its harmony, as a whole which is itself a work of art, and in its Summer Festival, the city can be enjoyed without end. From the marina you can sail out to the Elaﬂti and along the northern and southern shores of the famous Republic of Dubrovnik. If you set course towards the northeast youwill have an opportunity to anchor or moor in two spacious and safe bays,Zaton and Slano.
