One of the best places in the world to bring in the New Year is Dubrovnik, in Croatia. Join the locals in Stradun, the city’s main street, for one massive outdoor party. Tower bells, churches and palaces are decorated for the festive season, with dazzling displays lighting up underneath the awe inspiring firework shows above the Old City’s walls. As well as the array of bars and restaurants, you shouldn’t miss the exquisite tastes of the fritters, dried figs, carob almonds and of course champagne from the street stalls.
You can dance the night away with music from some of Croatia’s popular artists, celebrities, musicians and entertainers. Make sure to take in the rich culture as you take part in the most celebrated night of the year. Make your trip even more special by staying at one of the best hotels Dubrovnik has to offer. Just a short boat trip off the coast, on the island of Lopud, experience the luxury of Lafodia Sea Resort. Overlooking the beach, the beautiful hotel is surrounded by sea and palm trees. The natural setting is really brought alive by the crystal clear waters and the bright colours of the mediterranean vegetation. While you won’t be on the beach getting a tan at this time of year, the atmosphere of the resort makes for the perfect end of year break.
After seeing the sights on the island and the mainland, let yourself be pampered back at Lafodia Sea Resort. For the ultimate relaxation, make sure to visit the extraordinary spa and sauna. Relax in the humid zone overlooking the beautiful Lopud bay, visit the traditional Turkish bath, or get a luxurious massage. Dubrovnik and the island of Lopud really are the perfect destination for a peaceful break to help you rejuvenate and be ready for 2016.
