Images Of Dubrovnik

Known as the 'Pearl of the Adriatic', Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. As you walk down the old town's main, marbled thoroughfare 'Placa', there's something wrong with you if you don't look around, take a deep breath and think to yourself 'life is good'. This street is also one of the world's best people-watching strips. When not doing that, you can swim in some of Europe's clearest waters, walk the city's famed walls or dine in restaurants that won't break the bank. Then once the Old Town is covered you can see what's beyond the city walls to find the beachside neighbourhood of Lapad and more.

    Too touristic, but what a destination!

    The Old Town is fascinating, since it is still in such a good state. In July and August there will be too many tourists there. You can buy a Dubrovnik Pass, which saves you some money if you want to do the cultural stuff as well. Transport by bus is included.

    Insider Tip:When you want to go to the beach, I recommend Lapad Beaches. We also visited Lokrum Island by boat (from the old town). Takes only circa 20 minutes. You can spend the afternoon there. Costs are 10 euro’s.

    Dubrovnik - A few days is enough

    Dubrovnik is a beautiful place, and the old town is amazing. Walking the wall is a must. My opinion is that you can see emough of it in 2 days and dont recommend staying much longer than that. Most backpackers coming through are doing a Islands yachting tour so only stay a few days. If you are on a tight budget, the old town might not be for you, its not cheap relative to the rest of the country.

    Insider Tip:If you are sailing out of ACI marina, its about 20km away and an 18 Euro cab, its not at the old town.

    A lovely city although you only need one day to see all of the sights. Great to connect to Montenegro with loads of tour companies offering packages. It is a shame that there are no beaches to lie on considering how beautiful the water is.

    Beauty Beyond Compare

    This city is absolutely one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever been to. The sites from the mountain top and the city walls are incomparable to anything else you may have seen. The Old town is always packed with those that want to see the town, and at night becomes even more beautiful one the majority of tourists leave. Do not miss this cities night splendor as everything is lit up and displayed perfectly

    Insider Tip:The Ice cream prices range from the front of old town to the back, so don't pay more than you need to

    King's Landing in Reality!

    If you are a fan of Game of Thrones, you have to come to this city! This is where they have all the shots of King's Landing. The city itself suffered a lot during the war just 20 years ago, but now everything is well reconstructed. Many stairs in the old town, not exactly the best place for people with big suitcases. There is a little beach 10 mins from the old town, you can both enjoying sun and the history together. However, you cannot deny that everything here is more expensive than the north
