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.

    Beautiful, amazing, fantastic!

    The title is more than enough. I thought this city has a lot of hype because of GoT, but not at all! On my top 10, for sure and I travel a lot!

    Insider Tip:Try to discover the beach near the fort! Amazing!

    Florence of the Balkans/King's Landing

    We (3 guys) were there for two days and had an amazing time! Dubrovnik is incredibly beautiful in summer - walking through the historic streets of the old town, climbing the walls to look out over the clear turquoise water of the adriatic. the best thing we did was go on a kayak tour at sunset out around Lokrum island and to a nearby beach inside a cave. Definitely also walk the walls and include the fort to the west, as if you are a game of thrones fan like me you willl be freaking out.

    Insider Tip:"La barba" seafood place - everyone says go for the octopus burger but get the calamari, it is super fresh and will blow your mind

    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.
