Dubrovnik is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful UNESCO World Heritage site listed cities in the world. Not even severe shelling during the 1991 civil war managed to damage its charm and beauty. The city is encircled by imposing ancient stone walls that are famous in their own right. Located within the protective city walls are elegant marbled streets, magnificent medieval architecture, and a wealth of historic churches and palaces. Take a walk and admire the well-preserved buildings that showcase Baroque, Renaissance and Gothic classic styles.
From the top of the city walls you can enjoy spectacular ocean views and also look out over the cityscape. Although the sight is breathtaking, the best panoramic vistas of Dubrovnik’s beautiful Old Town can be viewed from the summit of Mount Srđ. Hop aboard the cable car for the 4-minute ride to the top. Awaiting you is an exceptional photo opportunity. The heart of the Old Town, and the dramatic seascape of the neighbouring Elaphiti Islands that are scattered along the coastline, can be viewed from the idyllic mountain vantage point.
Beyond the historic city walls of the Old Town there is an abundance of interesting and fun things to do in Dubrovnik. For the ultimate southern Croatia city experience, combine sightseeing expeditions with day trips and explorations of the vibrant local cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. Visit the famous Gothic Rector’s Palace, which is now a museum, and hang out in the fashionable pedestrianised Stradun (or Placa). Wherever you go in Dubrovnik, you will be able to soak up the history, culture and heritage of the stunning regal city. If you’re an avid Game of Thrones fan, don’t forget to visit the filming location where King’s Landing was brought to life. You can also take a ‘Walk of Shame’ from the top of the Jesuit Staircase, in Dubrovnic’s Gundulic Square, to Uz Jezuite Street.
