The stunning city of Dubrovnik sits beautifully on Croatia’s Adriatic coast. With an incredible air of majesty, a fabulous coastal setting and great weather, you’ll quickly understand why Dubrovnik is known as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’.
Lovely Old Town
It all starts with the Old Town in Dubrovnik. Packed with history and interesting landmarks, you can dive from the cobbled streets into centuries-old buildings like the Franciscan Monastery, before stopping at one of the many cafés for a drink and a spot of people watching. If you’re a fan of the Game of Thrones TV series then you’ll probably have a familiar feeling as you gaze around at the sights and scenery. Some of the show is filmed in Dubrovnik, and you can even go on a walking tour that’ll take you to some of the sets.
One of Dubrovnik’s most spectacular features are the ancient walls that surround the city. As well as giving you great photo opportunities and hiding a range of inviting bars and cafés, you can walk along the walls between historic towers and buildings. If you get tired of sightseeing, head to pretty Banje Beach near the Old Town and relax in the sunshine before sipping on a refreshing drink at the beach bar.
Wait for the night to set in at Banje Beach when things liven up as the party gets started. Or sit down for an atmospheric seafood dinner in the Old Town before heading to the main street- the Strada- for a few drinks. You might not think of Croatia as being famous for its wine, but the country produces some excellent ones that you can sip in a locally-run bar as you toast a lovely day in Dubrovnik.
