  • About Dubrovnik

    On the shores of the azure Adriatic, stands the proud and centuries-fortified city with white magnificent walls – Dubrovnik. Once a stronghold of pirates, it resides in Dalmatia, at the southernmost tip of Croatia.

    Centuries-old walls, towers, and bastions have significantly contributed to the identity and beauty of the city while preserving the ambient picture of times past.

    It’s one of those cities whose beauty you can never tire of, no matter how many times you visit. The spirit of the sea and life is felt in every part of the city, amid stone houses, colorful doors and windows, preserved walls, and sunlight. Such a wonderful old town is rarely seen, and precisely that made it the star of the famous HBO series “Game of Thrones.”

    Numerous restaurants and shops are arranged in a way that actively contributes to the beauty and energy of Dubrovnik, and the experience of viewing the city from the height of its walls is unique. If you want to treat your eyes to another exceptional sight, Mount Srđ, accessible by cable car, offers an even more fantastic view of the city, walls, and the Adriatic. The island of Lokrum, reached by a short boat ride, represents a special attraction. Its perfect nature will leave you breathless, wishing to stay there for days. Besides nature, there are small yet content-rich museums, including one dedicated to the famous book and series, Game of Thrones, which was filmed right here.

    If you’re up for a relaxed and luxurious Adriatic experience, where you listen to Oliver Dragojević, enjoy delicious Mediterranean food, and good wine, Dubrovnik is all you need.

    Du Motion Runners' Days

    The Du Motion race has firmly established itself as one of the most successful and well-organized running events in the region. It has become a symbol of quality, recognized by the overarching athletic organization, awarding it 5 stars for safety and quality. Additionally, numerous running and tourist media outlets (Lonely Planet, Runner’s World, Thrillist, etc.) consistently rank the Du Motion race among the events worth visiting.

    No matter how demanding or critical you might be, you’ll have to put in a lot of effort to find fault with this race. If you expect a lot from a race, Dubrovnik will offer you much more. Excellent organization, a rich starter package, breathtaking landscapes… These are just some of the reasons why you should join us at the starting line. And if you think this isn’t enough, the organizers have arranged a free trip to Lokrum Island, access to the city walls, entry to all city museums, free public transport throughout your stay, as well as discounts in numerous restaurants and establishments in the city.

    In addition to the half marathon, there’s also a 5 km charity pleasure run available.

    Half Marathon
    The start and finish of the half marathon are on Stradun, the most famous and longest street in Dubrovnik. You’ll run alongside the sea, on the main road, with a turning point at Prijevor, heading back towards the old town. Along the route, you’ll find 5 refreshment stations which you’ll pass twice, meaning you’ll have refreshments every 2 kilometers.
    The renowned starter package of this race is widely known to make your stay in the city much more favorable.
    After participating in this race multiple times, we confirm that the Dubrovnik half marathon is an event that never gets dull and has become a favorite among our travelers over time.

    5 km Race
    Similar to the half marathon, the start and finish are on Stradun, which in itself is a fantastic experience. The route leads to the Gruž port, then runs through Baninovo back to Stradun, making this route exceptionally beautiful and appealing.
    The starter package for this race is more modest than that of the half marathon, but it certainly includes what is essential for a quality race – a bib, a cotton shirt, and a medal.

    If you’re ready, we’re waiting for you at the starting line!

    Accommodations

    Hotel Vis***

    For our travelers, we have arranged accommodation at Hotel Palma, boasting four stars above its name. It’s located right on the seafront, in the heart of Tivat, offering stunning views of the Bay of Tivat. The hotel is modern, newly built, and a considerable number of rooms provide a view of the sea. Additionally, guests have access to a spa center, offering a special retreat after successfully completing the race.

    As every year, we’ve arranged accommodation for our travelers at Hotel Vis, accredited with three stars. While official institutions guarantee its quality, we believe that our recommendation holds greater significance. The accommodation includes bed and breakfast in double rooms, with the possibility of adding a third bed upon request or with an additional charge for a single room.

    What sets this hotel apart from others is its fantastic location. Situated right on the beach with views over the Adriatic. Moreover, just in front, on the other side of the entrance, there’s a bus station providing transportation to the old town and various parts of Dubrovnik. Nearby, there’s a pedestrian zone with numerous restaurants and shops, including a large supermarket. The square at the end of the street was renovated in 2017, making it even more beautiful and attractive for tourists. Prestigious restaurants offer special discounts for our travelers there.
