Venue and Accommodation

The colloquium will be held in Hotel Croatia Cavtat. Rising above a pine-forested peninsula overlooking unspoilt Cavtat Bay, Hotel Croatia Cavtat is the leading five-star resort and conference centre in the South Adriatic. Situated on a peninsula jutting into the sea at Croatia’s southernmost point, Cavtat Hotel enjoys countless sunny days and spectacular views of the open sea.

Just 8km from Dubrovnik airport, Hotel Croatia Cavtat combines a stunning waterfront location with easy access to the paradise-like treasures of the Adriatic coast. Must-visit medieval Dubrovnik across the bay is less than half an hour by car, or a relaxed 45-minute boat ride away.

Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful cities in Croatia and it originates from 7th century. Situated in the far south of Croatia, it is an ancient city of about 30000 inhabitants. Dubrovnik is listed by UNESCO as world cultural heritage.

It is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean Sea, a seaport and the centre of Dubrovnik-Neretva County. Its total population is 42,615 (census 2011). In 1979, the city of Dubrovnik joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites.

The prosperity of the city was historically based on maritime trade; as the capital of the maritime Republic of Ragusa, it achieved a high level of development, particularly during the 15th and 16th centuries, as it became notable for its wealth and skilled diplomacy.

Cavtat is a small town 10 kilometers south of Dubrovnik whose history reaches all the way back to 6th century BC as a Greek colony. Although small, it is teeming with natural beauties, culture and history as well as accommodating all modern tourist demands.
