Dubrovnik - Pearl of Adriatic

 

Dubrovnik, 'the Pearl of the Adriatic' - is  a living fairy tale that shouldn't be missed which is only an hour from Klek.

 

With an epic history and Mediterranean culture, Dubrovnik is one of Europe's best old towns. The highlight of any day in Dubrovnik is strolling the scenic mile around the Old Town's city walls. As you wander between a sea of orange roofs on one side and the actual sea on the other,  ponder how Dubrovnik's charm is the sleepy result of its extraordinary past. Busy merchants, the salt trade and shipbuilding made Dubrovnik rich. But the city's most valued commodity was always its freedom.

Mostar & Medjugorje

 

Mostar was named after the bridge keepers, who in the medieval times guarded the Stari Most (Old Bridge) over the Neretva. The Old Bridge, built by the Ottomans in the 16th century, is one of Bosnia and Herzegovina's most recognizable landmarks, and is considered one of the most exemplary pieces of Islamic architecture in the Balkans.

Mostar is an hour and a half drive from Klek and on a way you could visit Medjugorje.

Medjugorje has become one of the most popular pilgrimage sites for Catholics in the world and has turned into Europe's third most important apparition site, where each year more than 1 million people visit.

Ston & Mali Ston

Dalmatian culinary experiences you don't want to miss 

 

The Medieval complex of Ston and Mali Ston is half an hour away from Klek. In the early 13th century the Ston walls were built as a first line of defence to the Dubrovnik Republic, protecting the Peljesac peninsula. Ston is also famous for its salt-pens which are the oldest and the largest preserved ones in Mediterranean history. An excellent quality of salt is still produced with the same method that has not changed throughout the centuries. 

There is a beautiful town square with cafes, art galleries and shops. Mali Ston is the smaller village of the two, and it's famous for its oysters. People come far to eat at the restaurants there to enjoy the freshest seafood possible, as the view is that of the mussel and oyster farms of Peljesac.

Cafes are situated in gorgeous sqaures and little bars are nestled in narrow path ways. This place feels alive in all seasons as its popular with both locals and tourists. There is a theatre with opera and plays all year round.

 

The labyrinth of stone streets hold gorgeous shops selling jewellery, shoes , and chocolate . To the edges of the old town you can even find an H&M . There is a wonderful ethnographic museum where you can see what was being worn hundreds of years ago.
