Southeast of Dubrovnik, just breath away, like a guardian angel stands Lokrum island. Its beauty unshaded by the magnificent city. The rivalry of The City and Lokrum lasts for centuries as they compete in their undying dance of harmony only to break even as they are a perfect match.
Also known as the island of kings, Lokrum has its first writing mention in 1023 as the Benedictine abbey and monastery are founded.
According to legend, Richard the Lion-heart shipwrecked in 1192 after returning home from the crusades and found himself cast ashore, safe on Lokrum, and he pledged to build a church on the island indebted for the salvation but at the plea of Dubrovnik citizens, the church was not built on Lokrum but in The City instead. That church is still there waiting for your visit.
