Dubrovnik Sports & Outdoors: 8 reviews and 9 photos
Some people come to Croatia just to sail in the Adriatic Sea. One look at the glistening blue water and the beautiful coastline will tell you why. Island hopping in this area of the world is one of the most pleasurable sports I can think of. Check out this site for some information on a yacht charter in Dubrovnik.
Like pretty much everywhere else on earth, soccer is a passion in Dubrovnik although not to the degree that the locals in Split and Zagreb are nutty about their respective teams. These kids, however, were having a great time kicking the ball around in the Old Town.
Basketball is a popular sport in Croatia and the country's national team has had a lot of success on the international level. Most notably, at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 they won the silver medal losing only to the greatest team of all-time, the USA's Dream Team featuring Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. Some of the best Croatian-born players include Toni Kukoc, Dino Radja and the late, great Drazen Petrovic. Drazen died in a car accident in 1993, but I remember him as a great player for the New Jersey Nets and one of the best pure shooters I've ever seen.
I took this picture at the port in front of the Old Town. Maybe the reason Croatian players are such good shooters is the placement of the hoops. If you missed a shot long on this hoop, the ball would end up floating in the Adriatic!
