These 6 Cities Make The Perfect Alternative Getaways

Dubrovnik, Croatia

The capital of Croatia, Zagreb, attracts visitors with its romantic city charm, but the UNESCO world heritage site Dubrovnik makes for a truly incredible trip, thanks to its picture-perfect location by the sea. This magnificent walled city is full of Baroque style churches, delicious restaurants, stunning beaches and of course, the unique medieval old town. Booking.com travelers endorsed this city for its old town, the history and sightseeing, with apartments, hotels and guesthouses being the most booked types of accommodation.  In 2016, the three nations that sent the most visitors to Dubrovnik were the U.K., Spain and France.

Where to stay: Prijeko Palace guest house is just five minutes from the beach and located in the heart of the beautiful UNESCO-protected Dubrovnik Old Town. Set in a palace, recreating the 16th century architecture, the rooms at Prijeko Palace are all individually designed, brightly lit and alternate between modern and Baroque styles. The guesthouse has a restaurant and a bar or guests can wander out to explore the nearby shops, restaurants and cafes serving Dalmatian delights.
