Dubrovnik Airport (DBV)
Orientation and Maps
Often referred to as the 'Pearl of the Adriatic', the coastal city of Dubrovnik lies on Croatia's far southern shoreline. Home to a thriving seaport, the city of Dubrovnik has become a major tourist resort and the historic Old City area is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Dubrovnik was actually originally two separate towns and as a direct result of the unification many years ago, the city contains a number of distinctive neighbourhoods and local communities.
On the southern side of the city and close to Cilipi, Dubrovnik Airport (DBV) regularly serves in excess of one million passengers per annum. The airport is especially busy during the summer months and is a major gateway to this part of Croatia.
