 Dubrovnik is a city on the Adriatic Sea in southern Croatia's Dalmatian Coast with mesmerising medieval architecture and is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean Sea.  Since Game of Thrones showcased the city’s fabulous architecture, visitors have flocked to Dubrovnik to see “King’s Landing”, “Qarth” and the gardens of the “Red Keep” in real life. The Stradun is the main thoroughfare through the Old Townand is also a filming location for Star Wars. The city walls of Dubrovnik's old town are its most stunning and famed attraction.

You can walk along the top of the city’s walls and climb the perimeter towers, or duck down the evocative streets of the old town to check out the churches, monasteries and curious monuments of the old town, each with a compelling story to tell. Highlights include climbing the Minceta Tower and views over the Old Town. The main old town of Dubrovnik is filled with small shops, bars and restaurants. Lokrum island is short ferry ride from the city and its one of the most popular excursions to take while visiting Dubrovnik.

MORE ABOUT DUBROVNIK

City Walls
City Walls

Dubrovnik’s imperious walls are one of the things that qualified the city for UNESCO listing and if you watch Game of Thrones you’ll recognise several locations.

These white limestone defences go back to the 600s, but their current form dates to the 15th century when the fall of Constantinople was all the warning Dubrovnik’s officials needed that the Ottomans were on their way!

It will take an hour or so to make the full circuit along the battlements, stopping for supreme panoramas of the city backed by the Adriatic. Guided tours will give you extra snippets of info, but it’s also a good idea to set off early to beat the crowds.

Visit Old Town
Visit Old Town

At times the twisting streets of Dubrovnik’s old town will feel like a movie set, and you’ll find you can work up a big appetite if you let your curiosity guide you down all the little alleyways here.

You can get your bearings on Placa, which is old Dubrovnik’s main street; a straight and broad limestone channel beneath grand old houses.

As you walk you’ll notice that nearly all of these buildings share the same floor plan, and that’s because of a citywide decree on building designs following an earthquake and fire in the 17th century.On St. Blaise’s Day, the 3rd of February, there’s a procession along Placa in honour of Dubrovnik’s patron saint.

Undoubtedly the best view of Dubrovnik can be had from the crest of Mount Srd, which looms 412 metres above the city a short way inland.

In 1969 they built a cable car serving the summit, operating until midnight during the peak summer months.

By day you’ll never forget the vistas of Dubrovnik’s towers and walls, the baked clay tiles of the city’s houses and the evergreen offshore island against the cobalt Adriatic. At night you can gaze out to the west to see the sun setting behind the city.

Beaches

Few of the beaches on this sweep of the Adriatic are sandy; their attraction lies in the aquamarine waters that lap the shore and the pine forest or historic architecture that form the backdrop.

Lapad beach is one of more tourist-friendly places to unwind by the Adriatic sea.

There’s a pedestrian zone just behind the beach with bars and restaurants, while this gently arcing bay has a moderately wide beach with white pebbles.Further around the bay you can also enter the sea for a swim from the rocks.
