Lapad is a perfect location for your Dubrovnik vacation.
Originally called Ragusa, the city was founded in the 7th century as a refuge for coastal residents fleeing the advancing barbarians. From the outset, the city was protected by defensive walls. The borderland status of the town was to be a determining factor in its history. Part of the Mediterranean cultural constellation, yet intimately connected to the Balkans. Catholic yet surrounded by Islamic and Orthodox neighbours.
The new city state used its status as a crossroads between cultures and civilisations. The city thrived through extensive trade with other maritime ports such as Genoa, Pisa and Venice. Its continental trade networks also extended its reach into the Balkans with the Ottoman Empire. At the beginning of the 13th century, Dubrovnik fell under control of the most Serene republic, staying under its control until 1358.
Towards the end of the Middle Ages, Dubrovnikâ€™s maritime influence meant that it was the chief competitor of the Venetian empire for the Adriatic waterways. Its European educated diplomats and its widespread commerce allowed it to expand its influence beyond the Adriatic. Machiavelli was a notable luminary so impressed by the city that he applied to work there. City authorities were not impressed and turned him down.
Dubrovnikâ€™s ascent received a major blow in 1667 as a catastrophic earthquake destroyed a large amount of the Renaissance art and architecture in the city. The Sponza and the Rectorâ€™s palace were the only buildings that survived the natural disaster. The city was reconstructed in the baroque style that has survived intact until today. Despite the reconstruction, the decline of the Mediterranean as a hub for trade meant that Dubrovnik, like other Mediterranean ports, began a steady decline. By the time Napoleon arrived at the gates in 1806, the Republic of St Blaise was a shadow of itself.
The Congress system and Napoleonâ€™s campaign had extinguished the last vestiges of the Republic. In 1815, like much of the eastern Adriatic coast, Dubrovnik became part of the Habsburg Empire, where it would remain until 1918.
The beginnings of tourism
The period of Austrian dominance saw the early beginnings of tourism. Lord Byron on his Grand Tour was said to have called Dubrovnik â€˜the Pearl of the Adriaticâ€™. Later, prominent authors like Bernard Shaw and Agatha Christie were dazzled by the perfectly preserved baroque oasis.
During the second Yugoslav period after 1945, the popularity of the city grew worldwide and millions marvelled at the medieval splendour. The importance of tourism meant that Dubrovnik was put on UNESCOâ€™s world heritage list in 1979. This also meant that it was one of the few places in the former Yugoslavia that was demilitarised as the authorities felt that a military presence was incompatible with the development of tourism. The income from tourism allowed significant developments for the city infrastructure such as the airport.
Due to its historic borderland status, Dubrovnik was significantly affected by the break-up of Yugoslavia. In the early 90s, Greater Serb aggression resulted in Dubrovnik suffering its most serious existential threat. Over two thirds of the historic townâ€™s buildings were hit by artillery. The townâ€™s cobbled streets were struck by hundreds of direct hits. For the first time in history, the medieval city walls themselves received over a hundred direct hits. Many historic palaces were badly damaged by the resulting fires. The renowned Sponza and Rectorâ€™s palace, St Blaiseâ€™s church, the Franciscan monastery and the Amerling and Onofrio fountain all suffered severely. The total reconstruction cost was said to be some $ 10 million.
The demilitarised status of Dubrovnik shows that the sole purpose of the siege that was to last until June 1992 was to damage the morale of the Croats during its war of independence. The shocking pictures of the siege on the world television screens and valiant resistance of the Croatian army resulted in the eventual withdrawal of the Serb Army. International organisation led by UNESCO helped organise a successful reconstruction effort meaning that today Dubrovnik is again back to its former splendour.
Lord Byron named it “the Pearl in the Adriatic” and Bernard Shaw said, “Those that seek paradise on earth should seek it in Dubrovnik”.
I have chosen this flat for it has offered a quiet and undisturbed stay, and I can say that it has fully lived up to what it had promised. The flat is presented at high standards, modern fitted, corresponding to the description by the host. It is conveniently close to all amenities, while it offers privacy and a pleasant ambience with a Dalmatian decor, including a patio/garden. Bus line 6 runs frequently, is reliable and inexpensive for a trip to Old Town, taking a short ride, while Lapad peninsula itself, where the flat is located, offers splendid sights, a selection of restaurants, a promenade, and walking opportunities along a scenic coastline. Apart from this environment, my special thanks go to my hosts Antonio and his father-in-law for delightful conversations, a very welcoming attitude, and for going the extra mile making my stay very enjoyable and memorable.

This has been my best Airbnb experience so far. Antonios outgoing personality made us feel as if we staying at our own home.The apartment was very clean and cosy and exactly as shown in pictures. Tho we had our own car we were using public transportation a lot and everything was reachable within notime. I therefore can only highly recommend Antonio as perfect host, as well as the apartment and location. Thanks Antonio for all the help during the stay and above all for the unique hospitality from you and your family. Best regards and hope to see you soon.
Christian from Germany
Perfect location. I am so glad we did not stay within the city walls. It was way too crowded and noisy. Antonio’s apartment is well away from all of this and provides some relaxation after a while day of sightseeing. It is only a 1 minute walk to the #6 bus into the city. The bus ride is about 10 minutes. We rented a car and are very glad we did because it allows you to explore the surrounding areas at your own pace. Don’t miss Ston for the fresh oysters, the worlds oldest sea salt ponds and the Great Wall of Ston. On your drive back, pull over and swim in one of the beaches. It will be less crowded and you will get the feel of local life. Also take a day trip to Cavtat for beautiful seaside dining. Burgenvala has an amazing homemade Bloody Mary, breads and delicious food made with the freshest ingredients. The parking space at Antonio’s was a major plus. Communication with him was super easy and he responded to all questions promptly and proactively. He even left is some fruit from his garden and homemade wine. His parents were always there if you needed and gave you enough privacy. Pictures are very accurate. STAY HERE!

Antonio is an absolute delight to communicate with and goes over and beyond to make your stay as special and enjoyable as possible. I booked this apartment as a gift for my parents and for a small fee Antonio helped me to make the trip extra special by organising a beautiful bunch of flowers and some breakfast items in the flat as a welcome surprise. He also took the time to show my parents the local area and gave them tips on things to do and see. My parents absolutely loved the apartment and described Antonio as a very kind, friendly, helpful and positive person! The apartment was a short walk from the beach and local shops and a very short bus ride to the old town. This made it a perfect location for my parents who are in their late 60s. Everything about the apartment is exactly as described, I would wholeheartedly recommend Antonio and his apartment to anyone who wants beautiful accommodation very close to Dubrovnik old town. I hope I will get to stay at this apartment myself on future trips to Dubrovnik!
