Finally, the castle is the main attraction for tourists and locals alike; Loaded with history, it currently hosts concerts, theater plays, exhibitions and even an outdoor cinema.

 

Dubrovnik, Croatia Dubrovnik does not look like any other city you’ve seen so far and is not called the Pearl of the Adriatic in vain. This city loaded with 11th-century walls has gone through historical shortcomings produced by the Ottoman Empire, having to face the greed and greed of the Venetians, being finally defeated by Napoleon. More recently known due to the scenes from the Game of Thrones filmed here, the Old City Center is on the UNESCO Heritage List. Take advantage of the Adriatic Sea and the Elafiti Islands and rent a boat trip from Dubrovnik Daily Sailing (which includes a meal at one of the local restaurants).

Florence, Italy In Florence, the capital of the Tuscany region, menù di pizza e gelato sounds like a ballad. Il Mercato Centrale is the perfect place for a quick, delicious and inexpensive snack. However, the most important aspect of the city is art. In the fifteenth century, the family of Medici bankers unofficially took over the leadership of the city, contributing significantly to its artistic development, by supporting those of Michelangelo, Botticelli or Leonardo da Vinci. Michelangelo Square, della Signoria Square, Boboli Gardens, Ponte Vecchio, or Florence Dome should not escape you.

Edinburgh, Scotland Edinburgh looks like the city of absolute inspiration, where the first Harry Potter manuscripts, Adam Smith’s “Adventures of Nations” were written, the place where Charles Darwin was taught before writing about the Origin of Species at the same university where the first animal – the Dolly sheep was cloned. Despite the steep terrain, Edinburgh belongs to pedestrians and cyclists and that’s very good because only legs can lead you to city hideouts, tunnels, stairs, secret gardens. Although Scottish bars and whiskey are a tradition, do not rush to rush over them before sunset, not to miss the spectacle offered by nature and the architecture of the place.

Marrakech, Morocco Marrakech is a city in the heart of Morocco, exotic, the kind of destination that is said to open your mind. Walking through Medina or the Old City Center is an absolute experience. Forget the map as you walk through the streets, go through ancient buildings, shops and houses, through the story of hundreds of years of urban civilization that drives this border of Islamic culture. In addition, you will find delightful Moroccan cuisine. Stopping at one of the restaurants on different roofs will be a break from the typical Medina with the Atlas Mountains, the Koutoubia Mosque or the remote city architecture.
Porto, Portugal In the weekends, in Porto, you will find the streets full of people enjoying an outdoor drink. For example, Café au Lait on Rua Galerias de Paris listens to electronic music and DJs are invited. If the electronic music is not yours, take a look at the door of the Tendinha Dos Clérigos bar, where you can dance from Wednesday to Saturday from 00:00 to 06:00. Day by day, head to Bolhão Square and choose one of the traditional loaves (Broa de Avintes or Pão de Montalegre), a bacalhau, Ameixas de Elvas dessert (a variety of plums cooked for a few days and delicious) or cheeses Vendor

Tenerife, Spain Tenerife is not just about lying on a beach with a drink in your hand. You can see the active Teide volcano, the highest peak in Spain and all of the Atlantic islands and the third largest volcano on the planet. He continues with a visit to Garachico, a settlement that in the 18th century was the most important port of the island, but history turned it into a small, charming village where the volcanic lava created natural pools. Neither Masca village ought to escape you. It is said to be the most beautiful village on the island, where 100 souls along with thousands of cacti, palm trees and lemons call it “house”. And when you look up, look at the ocean. And if you keep on going, you get to him.

Dukley Gardens & Marina

Dukley Gardens & Marina

Montenegro is a Mediterranean country located in southeastern Europe. It has a coast on the Adriatic Sea. If we had only two words to describe Montenegro, it would certainly be these words: Mountains and Sea. The country is small but has fascinating landscapes, beautiful coastline, the famous history and rich cultural heritage.

The turbulent history of this small country has left behind an invaluable treasure in numerous historic monuments throughout this proud country. The blue sea, endless beaches, restless waters of the clear rivers and beautiful mountain massifs, mixed with the spirit of the times, give Montenegro everything that you might wish for on an unforgettable vacation. The only thing that was missing is a place within this natural paradise that you can return every year and call it home.

This is why Neil Emilfarb, an investor from the United States, founded the Dukley Gardens, a new residential project in the Mediterranean. It consists of 202 flats designed to the highest standards, with a special focus, according to Neil, placed on the quality. Materials used are of high quality well-known international brands – from the built-in kitchens and luxury sanitary ware to the latest devices.

Located near the old town of Budva, it offers its residents the beautiful view of the coastal line and the open sea. Inspiration for the project was found in the local environment – elements of the old town, the sea and the mountains. The results are thematically designed floors so that tenants could choose an apartment for their taste and needs. The smallest apartment has 58 m2, and the owners have a choice of lofts – one, two and two-bedroom penthouse on the top floor.

Sizes of apartments reach to 212 square meters, while a limited number of penthouses with roof terraces reach 535 square meters. The first two floors of the building are reserved for commercial premises, and tenants have at their disposal an underground garage with 70 parking spaces.

In the construction, Neil Emilfarb and his team of investors, the Stratex Group, set their minds on making a foundation that is as solid as possible. Most important to them was the quality of materials, components and equipment. Now, owners can proudly say to their tenants, that “Dukley” ensures the highest quality in the region. By purchasing an apartment in the Dukley projects, residents receive much more than real estate. They become part of the Dukley brand and get access to all the benefits and services offered by our administrative companies. In addition they also have something priceless – Budva, “Dukley Marina” and the Adriatic Sea on the thresholds of their homes.Dukley Gardens & Marina

Dukley Marina currently has 300 moorings and can accommodate yachts up to 70m. It offers a complete service, and is also the border crossing. It has recently become a member of the “Camper & Nicholsons” network – “The 1782 Club”.

In addition to their activities in the field of real estate, the coming period will be dealt with by improving and expanding the Dukley Marine. Neil Emilfarb’s investment group Stratex became the owner of a significant stake in the hotel group “Budva Riviera“, which indicates the new direction of our future business worldwide hotel tourism.

Dukley Gardens may as well be a place where you can spend every holiday for the rest of your life.
