Dubrovnik-Neretva Region is placed in the most south part of Croatia. Because of the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina at Neum is divided into two parts: Dubrovnik with Korcula and Neretva. Region is comprised of two basic units: the relatively narrow coastal area with a number of coastal Islands (Korcula, Mljet, lastovo and the Elaphite Islands)and Peninsula Pelješac with Neretva and its coastline. The coastal area is very unique and varies from protected bays with sandy beaches, exotic beauty to the open sea exposed to the steep coast with cliffs as this Region makes one of the most beautiful areas in the Mediterranean. Dubrovnik Region is connected with Split and other parts of the Croatia by Adriatic tourist road and new modern highway road. There is an international airport in Čilipi, 25 km east of Dubrovnik, and an international sea port of Gruž in Dubrovnik.
