Dubrovnik paired with ??

Hubby and I are looking to visit the Dubrovnik area in summer '12. We'd like to stretch our holiday to two weeks. What other country would pair well with this destination?

In terms of practicality, i guess Slovenia, Italy or Montenegro would be best? Could you get a boat over from Italy and do a week on each? Slovenia is meant to be lovely, especially Lake Bled, and that's inland, so you could then do a week on the lake/mountains and a week on the beach/town in Dubrovnik? but to drive it to Dubrovnik would take ages, but could you get a connecting flight?

Or, you could do a week in Dubrovnik, then a week on one of the islands off the coast (Bol, Brac, Korcula)?

I hope you know that Dubrovnik is not a country. Country is Croatia.

My wife is an American and we spent about 1 hour in Dubrovnik last year. WHY?

Because, she said: "We already have Disneyland. Dubrovnik is like Disneyland on steroids".

But, if you still want to go, consider the coast of Croatia to be one of the most exciting and fancy destinations of today in travel world.

If that still is not enough for you, consider going to Bosnia (that is just few miles away) and see completely different world. (It's distance like going from Marietta to Woodstock or Canton)...

Why not stay the entire time in Croatia? Two weeks is a decent amount of time to not only visit Dubrovnik, but also places like Korcula, Split, Hvar, Trogir, etc.

You could certainly spend all 2 weeks in Croatia. There is lots to see. But another good option is to combine it with other central European countries like Hungary, Slovakia, and Austria. You could spend a week along the beautiful Adriatic coast and then head inland to see the cities of Budapest, Bratislava, and Vienna.

I agree with Barry: two weeks in Croatia.

Start in Zagreb and then continue to Istria before hitting south shores. Croatia is wonderfully diverse and each day will be a discovery.

Of course, two nights in Slovenia and one day trip to Montenegro would be recommended detours!
