The geography of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County
So the southernmost part of Dalmatia belongs to the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. The city of Dubrovnik is without question the most visited in the entire county. Life is raging here and many young people surrender to the party scene every evening, especially in summer. But the Dubrovnik-Neretva County is also an ideal travel destination for those who do not want to be constantly partying and want to spend quiet days. Here you can stroll through the cozy markets, enjoy the regional cuisine with fresh fish and seafood and all of this at wonderful prices.
The area of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County also includes the region around the Neretva estuary and the Peljesac peninsula. The islands of Korcula, Mljet and Lastovo also belong to the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. The eastern part borders directly on the neighboring republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina. The south-east, on the other hand, connects to Montenegro and thus offers attractive excursion possibilities.
Basically, the county consists of two parts. Because the mainland is divided by a short but solid stretch of coast in the Neum region. Neum already belongs to Herzegovina, but the area behind it still belongs to the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. Because the part around Dubrovnik does not have its own land connection with the Croatian Republic.
The Dubrovnik-Neretva County is divided into 5 cities and 17 municipalities. With 93.29 percent of the total population of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County, Croatians are clearly in the majority compared to the remaining ethnic groups that live here.
It is also interesting that although one speaks of the place Konavle colloquially, it actually does not officially exist. Because the municipality of Konavle consists of several smaller, village-like settlements. These are located in a southerly direction from Dubrovnik.
Economy and infrastructure in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County
The longest bridge in Croatia has been under construction in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County since November 2005. The main aim here is to pass over the area of Bosnia-Herzegovina. This bridge means economic and transfer independence.
The bridge begins on the Polce coast and then crosses the inlet to the Peljseac peninsula and ends here. The bridge will not be completed until 2012 so that it can be actively used. Then the A1 motorway runs down here from Zagreb via Split to Dubrovnik.
This bridge is sure to be not only an architectural masterpiece, but also a landmark of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County and the entire Croatian Republic. Until then, as a visitor, you have to be content with the conventional sights. How about the town of Cavtat. It has impressive ancient buildings and Renaissance palaces in its city center. A real feast for the eyes. Guaranteed.
