API students participate in excursions designed to help familiarize them with the culture and surrounding areas of their host city and country. The following is a listing of potential excursions for API Dubrovnik programs. API may need to modify the excursions offered in a given term due to travel restrictions or health and safety concerns.

  • Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina

    A rich history has left numerous historic and cultural traces in these parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina, none more so than the town of Mostar. The vivid city has many cultural and religious features, including some impressive relics left by the Turkish, during the rule of the Ottoman Empire. Mostar’s most recognizable landmark is the bridge and the Old City. In this Bosnian town you can also visit Old Bazaar and a typical Turkish house.

  • Plitvice Lakes National Park

    Plitvice Lakes National Park is the oldest national park in Southeastern Europe, and the largest in Croatia. It contains breathtaking waterfalls, streams, and lakes, that remind you of a mashup of landscapes from Yosemite, Costa Rica, and Hawaii. The unique water features were formed by above and below ground rivers which are interconnected. The lakes are known for their unique colors (blues, greens and grays), which are affected by the various minerals, flora and fauna, and the angle of the sunlight.

  • Split

    Split is the second largest city in Croatia and one of the country’s oldest. Students will have the chance to see Roman emperor Diocletian’s Palace, visit one of the nearby Dalmatian islands of Hvar or Brac, and hike up Marjan Hill for a spectacular view of the city.

  • Zagreb

    The capital and largest city in the Republic of Croatia, Zagreb has a population of nearly 800,000. Parts of its old city bring to mind images of other Central European capitals such as Budapest, Prague, and Vienna. The Gornji grad (upper town) and Donji grad (lower town) are considered the cultural heart(s) of the city. Students will have the chance to see many of Zagrebs attractions – both old and new – including the Old Town Gate, the new Museum of Contemporary Art, the traditional Dolac Market, and the Strossmayer šetalište (a popular promenade offering stunning views over the city rooftops).

  • Elafiti Islands

    The Elafiti Islands are a small archipelago of islands northwest of Dubrovnik. API students may visit the neighboring inhabited islands of Lopud, Kalamota, and Šipan. Full of peaceful woodlands, vineyards, orchards, and summer homes, these small islands are easily explored by foot and are a great spot for a relaxing day trip.
