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.

Dubrovnik City Reviews

  • 100%



    Dubrovnik, along with Split, were my favorite cities in Croatia. Absolutely loved to walk around the city, especially in Old Town (King's Landing). I would definitely come back here, and most certainly will in the near future. I can't even imagine how beautiful it must be during the summer. I guess I'll have to find out!

    Insider Tip:Grab some great fast food at Presa fast food in Old Town, and make sure to leave some time to visit the national park next to Lapad beach. It was amazing, particularly during the sunset.

    Beware the Off Season

    Dubrovnik is lovely and beautiful, truly unique. However, if you're planning on going during the off season, be aware that a lot of things will be closed. It was chilly and rainy (which was fine with me), but some of the things I'd wanted to see (the photography gallery, the cable car) were closed.

    Insider Tip:Whatever you do, don't eat at Gusti.

    Dubrovnik is a sight for sore eyes

    It is a beautiful city, just big to do much exploring but not big enough to get lost. There is a small night life, and during the day much to see including day-trip to nearby islands!

    Insider Tip:If you can, stay in old town, within Dubrovnik walls. The area by the large port is a good 20 minute walk away along a narrow road kinda dangerous, unless you take the shuttle bus back and forth.

    The best stay in Croatia

    There is no private car park although it's said parking lot is there. However you can park cars along side the road close to the accomodation. I think the best part of this house is the owner, Mr. Miro. He's very friendly, easy-going, fluent in English, eager to help guest, etc. What's more continental breakfast & unlimited tap beer is included.

    Give Yourself Some Time Here

    We stayed here only two nights and I wish we would have stayed at least one more night. The city is beautiful and we didn't get a full chance to explore it because we spent our day doing a boat trip (recommend, and there are many other day excursions involving the water). And we didn't end up getting to do the GoT tour, which I heard absolutely incredible things about from Thrones fans. Overall had a great time there, just wish we could have stayed longer.

    Insider Tip:You can get free entrance to the "Revelin" or whatever the club is. Don't pay, ask around about how to get vouchers.
