If you ever drive along Dalmatian Coast, there’s no way you could miss the old city Dubrovnik.
The historical city Dubrovnik is protected by Unesco in the World Heritage List, which is not surprising. When you stroll through the streets of Old Town, you get a feeling as you’re getting back in time, in times where there were queens, kings and serfs. The architecture itself is a mixture of Renaissance, Baroque and Gothic arts and it is truly stunning. The inhabitants managed to defend their hometown despite many aggressors.
The Old City most likely emerged around 7th Century.
MUST-SEE IN DUBROVNIK
- If you want to get the best view of Dubrovnik, you should definitely see the ancient City Walls, a complex system of forts, bastions, casemates, towers and detached forts.  It costs around 10-20€/per person. However, the view on the Walls is majestic and impressive at the same time.
- If you’re a fan of popular television series Game of Thrones, choose Game of Thrones Tour. The ticket costs 55€ and its duration is 2:30 hours. More about it: on this page.
- I would personally recommend to visit Srđ, the hill which raises above Dubrovnik. You can get uphill by cable car, car or on foot.
GOOD TO KNOW WHEN YOU’RE IN DUBROVNIK
- Prices in Dubrovnik are one of the highest in Croatia.
- Good acommodation: Apartment Haj. Good prices, clean rooms and really kind owners.
- Best views for taking photography: Hill Srđ and Lovrijenac fortress.
- The Old City is full of tourists, so if you want to get the best of your Dubrovnik visit, go and sightsee in mornings, when the city is less crowded.
- Bus connections are well-organized. Also traveling with bus is cheaper and faster, because you avoid paying parking (which can be up to 10€ per hour).
I would recommend visiting Dubrovnik to everyone who is keen on history, architecture and art. This quaint city won’t live you indifferent.
