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.

    Till now, the most beautiful place I have ever been in Europe. Must to go. Words and pictures not enough, if you are not there physically. You need to be there to feel the beauty of this place. Old city, Lapada, Cavtat areas are wonderful, so much beauty by the nature at the same place.

    One of the few places I would return!

    Love to travel and do not visit the same place twice as I belive that there is too many great places and not too many free days but I would return to Dubrovnik, it has it all

    The one and only

    Dubrovnik is the most amazing city I have visited and I have been traveling intensively for the past 55 years. It takes about 4-5 days to just scratch the surface or if you wish to go deeper into culture and history than there is no limit.

    Insider Tip:Best to come out of the high season, the winters are mild and prices are seriously lower.

    Beautiful city and surrounding areas. It looks great in photographs but is significantly more impressive in reality. Worth a visit just to see it. If around for a few days there are plenty of things to see and do beyond the city walls.

    Insider Tip:kayak around the city walls and Lokrum Island

    Beautiful but full of tourists

    Dubrovnik is an absolutely beautiful city, but that does mean there will be lot's of other people there. During the daytime, loads of cruise ship travelers magically appear in the city, which is a little off-putting - that may be a good time to take a kayak tour or something. All in all, I'd say 2 full days, maybe 3 are what you need.

    Insider Tip:There's a good, free, exhibit on the war (the 1990s one) in the fort at the top of the cable car ride. You have to walk outside of the cable car building and around the fort a little to find it.
