The enchanting city of Dubrovnik is located close to the teeny-tiny island and nature reserve of Lokrum.
Most visitors to Lokrum take in a couple of the island's attractions before enjoying a relaxing day reclining on the rocks near the lake and swimming. This is a wonderful way to spend a day or an afternoon away from the hustle and bustle of Dubrovnik.
If you think that is beautiful, wait until you start touring the island because it will only become more verdant as you go.
Even though the garden wasn't established until 1959, many of the already existing plants date back to the time when Maximilian I possessed Lokrum in the 19th century. The Garden houses a diverse range of plant life, including, but not limited to, palm trees, cacti, and eucalyptus trees, for example.
This lagoon has the most stunning blue-green coloration throughout it.
Its name comes from the water being highly salty, making it the perfect place to float around.
Peacocks are known for their ostentatious behavior, which includes constantly fanning out their tail feathers to give the impression that they are putting on a show for their visitors.
You won't need to go to peacock farms that keep their animals in confinement because peacocks are naturally free to roam and are not confined by people.
You are welcome to take a seat on the throne of Game of Thrones!
If you're a fan of ''Game of Thrones'' series, you'll feel at home here. The historic Benedictine monastery served as the location for filming one of the scenes for the show, while Lokrum's Botanical Garden played host to the production of another.
You are welcome to stop by the exhibit and even take a seat on the throne that has been recreated.
During the 12th century, King Richard the Lionheart was making his way back to England after the Crusades when he became shipwrecked on this island. You may learn more about the island's past as you explore it.
Some visitors like to bring their food and have a delightful picnic; this is a fantastic option if you don't want to be caught out shelling out a lot of money.
You'll also find a handful of cafes and restaurants where you can get a bite to eat (or a refreshing drink ) on the go or take your time enjoying a meal. Take into consideration the following locales:
