Orasac, Croatia - holiday information

Orasac Croatia - visitor information

Orasac is a small settlement, located 15 kilometers northwest of Dubrovnik, between Zaton and Trsteno settlements. There are 35 kilometers to the airport. Larger part of the settlement stretches out over the hill, just above the Adriatic highway, and a smaller part of the settlement under. Taking a path through olive groves, pines and cypress you will reach the beautiful beaches and coves.  If you decide to spend your vacation in Orasac and  want to explore the surroundings or visit Dubrovnik, we recommend coming by car.  The coach route from Orasac to Dubrovnik runs only few times a day and the bus stop is on the highway. Therefore we recommend this vacation spot to those who wish to spend a peaceful and relaxing holiday.  You can choose private accommodation in apartments, or if you prefer high quality service, we recommend staying in one of the five stars hotel complex, which was completely renovated few years ago. Hotel complex called “Dubrovnik Sun Gardens” stood here in the late eighties and it was considered to be one of the most famous and attractive hotel accommodations. Unfortunately, it was devastated and destroyed during the war in the early nineties of the last century. There is a legend saying that Orasac was named after nuts, that grew here abundantly until the fall of the Ragusa Republic, when all the nut trees were cut down in order to make 15 ships. On the second of July there is a festivity celebrating the patron of the settlement, Our Lady of Orasac. In the church bearing the same name are paintings of Our Lady of Sorrows and St. John the Baptist. These paintings are included in the Register of Cultural Goods of Croatia.
