Dubrovnik city center and its Old Town are just 11 kilometers from the resort. The remarkably well-preserved medieval architecture of old town is a must-see attraction that has been enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the gothic, renaissance and baroque palaces and churches surrounded by a fascinating wall that can be explored by foot.
If you prefer to relax at one of the many beautiful beaches, visit the Copacabana beach in the city center or take the ferry over to the scenic Elaphite Islands for a tranquil, non-urbanized beach scene where not even cars are allowed.
The Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Dubrovnik Sun Gardens places guests on the pristine shores of the Adriatic Sea, just 3 kilometers from the 500-year-old paths of the gothic-renaissance park Trsteno Arboretum. Besides ancient tree specimens, you will find a 15th-century summer villa and a Baroque fountain fed from a 70-meter aqueduct. This is also one of the main film locations when shooting the popular HBO Game of Thrones TV-series.
