Dubrovnik is proving a magnet for sportspeople this summer. Famous footballers, swimmers, handball players and other athletes have chosen the Dubrovnik Riviera for their summer holidays.
After the stresses and strains of competing in the Euros 2016 in France two members of the Croatian national football team decided to relax in Dubrovnik, the flying winger Ivan Perisic and the striker Nikola Kalinic, both stayed in the Valamar Hotels.
And from the world of handball the popular Croatian star Domagoj Duvnjak with girlfriend Lucija Žulj are currently on holiday in Dubrovnik. Duvnjak was named World Player of the Year in 2013 and plays for the club THW Kiel in Germany. Another handball ace is also staying in Dubrovnik at the moment, the legendary Kiril Lazarov who plays for Barcelona. In fact Dubrovnik could put together quite a good handball team as the German players Steffen Weinhold and Jacob Heinl as also in town.
