Island of Lokrum, Dubrovnik

4.5
#1 of 206 in Parks in Dalmatia
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.

  • The island is very well served by fairies that start from the port of the old town. The monastery is to visit and the old Fort offers a magical view that makes forget the rough climb that must be undertaken to get there

  • We spent an afternoon at Lokrum, where the short shipping was already very nice. The island with its many peacocks and rabbits is an experience and is well worth a trip. Unfortunately, it was still too cold for bathing (which is certainly nice in the summer). Definitely a recommendation to visit the island of Lokrum.

  • Lokrum island is a small getaway from the old dubrovnik town through a boat. The USP of this island for Game of thrones fans is that it has the Iron throne in it. Otherwise for nature lovers, this place has peacocks, and a long trail to walk around. The entire island can be completed in less than 4 hours through the walking trail. There is a lake inside the island where people can relax and bath. But that can be done only in the summers though.
  • We used to build small houses or cottages when we were child. And then we used to keep our belongings, whatever important for us, like crown caps or marbles there. . Dubrovnik's beauty can't be explained with words of course. Not only the oldtown's beauty, but also the beauty of the places around. One of the most famous one, Lokrum Island for example. Similar to the small cottages that we used to build in our childhood, Lokrum is like a cottage that Dubrovnik has built. It is a place where the city is hiding it's beauties and it is like a secret place. There are so many beauties fitted into the island. I was planning to stay for few hours but on the way back, I started thinking that you can even stay there for a night
