The Dubrovnik-Neretva County is the southernmost region of Croatia, located in southern Dalmatia. It is quite a peculiar region, because the city of Neum, which belongs to the neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina, divides it into two parts. The only link between the Pelješac peninsula and Dubrovnik with the rest of the mainland is the Pelješki Bridge.

The beautiful old town of Dubrovnik, known as the pearl of the Adriatic, and the clean sea attract millions of people every year. This makes the city and its surroundings one of the most popular destinations for tourists from all over the world.
