Upstream, around its source, several villages which make up Rijeka Dubrovačka are arrayed in a semicircle. This fjord-like valley is famous for several 15th and 16th century renaissance summer residences. One of the most prominent is the Sorkočević family summer residence housing the present day Dubrovnik ACI Marina, which offers shelter to numerous Croatian and foreign boats in summer and in winter. Among the summer residences which the Dubrovnik aristocrats built in Rijeka Dubrovačka
the Sorkočević summer residence with its beautiful garden and steps is the best preserved.
Rijeka Dubrovačka abounds with bird species which live there, or which have only chosen the spring of the River Ombla for a resting post on their long journey.
While enjoying your coffee by the Dubrovnik ACI Marina swimming pool, you will probably see ducks or gorgeous swans gliding on the green surface of the river.
The entire area of Rijeka Dubrovačka has excellent regular bus connections with the Dubrovnik centre.
