Dubrovnik is known as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’, or maybe it’s King’s Landing if you’re a Game of Thrones fan. Either way, over the last ten years it’s gone from being a relatively unknown Croatian city to one of the Mediterranean’s hottest destinations. With more visitors comes a growing nightlife scene, at least for part of the year. In winter the city goes back to its sleepy roots, but come summer you’ll find terrace bars, cocktail lounges and open air dance floors. And best of all they come with a stunning backdrop of the old town’s terracotta rooftops and the blue Adriatic Sea.
