Swim, marvel at exotic plants, and walk with peacocks at Island of Lokrum. Visit the site where, according to legend, King Richard the Lionheart was cast safely ashore after a shipwreck during his return from the crusades. The area was also once a favorite summer retreat of Austrian archduke Maximilian. To get to the island, ride a ferry from the city. Enjoy a dip in the small salt lake, which is 10 m (33ft) deep and known as the Dead Sea. Visit the botanical garden to admire Mediterranean plants, including laurels, oaks, pines, cypresses, olives, agaves, cacti, magnolia, and palms. If you'd like to take a journey back in time, explore the deserted 11th-century Benedictine monastery. To visit Island of Lokrum on your trip to Dubrovnik, use our Dubrovnik itinerary maker.

  • The only inhabitants of this island are some peacocks and rabbits. These are pretty tame and even come out of your hands. The "dead sea" on this island is very pleasant to get to Lake în. The rocks are also the trouble. Really a must. For 100 kuna pp you can go there by boat, this is also fun.

  • The island of Lokrum undoubtedly is very worthwhile ... you just pay the ferry crossing is very into account compared to the prices of the other attractions of the city. And a magnificent. Has several places for walking, bathing in pools formed in the middle of the stones. Very cool. Got some hot restaurants for lunch or even just SIP ... then you visit the Abbey where are presented interesting passages of filming the game of thrones. From there you climb up to the Fort at the top of the island. Completissimo program. Super recommend.
