Dubrovnik needs no introduction, especially if you are familiar with the ancient cities and towns of Europe. For the uninitiated, it is a coastal resort in Croatia, which has stood the test of time and bloody wars. In fact, the city withstood heavy shelling during the recent Yugoslavian wars. Today, the city is a popular seaside resort and a must-visit destination for international travellers.
You could choose to stay at the historic Hilton Imperial, which used to be a palace. In fact, there were two palaces in 1895 at the location, and during the wars, it was used as a hospital. Although it was almost destroyed in 1991 during the shelling, it is now an example of Art Nouveau architecture. The interiors are warm and subtle, and reflect a Croatian heritage that is difficult to find.
You could choose the Presidential Suite if you can afford it, for it provides amazing views of the Adriatic coast and also of the Old town. Apart from great views and impeccable interiors, you could also try the breakfast buffet which reveals the smells and tastes of Dalmatian fare. For more information, you could visit www.hilton.co.uk/dubrovnik or call 00 385 20 320320. The Presidential Suite costs 1,145 Euros and the double room costs 165 Euros, if you can’t afford the former.
