It’s no wonder Dubrovnik has become such a popular tourist destination – it offers Mediterranean sun, an ancient walled city and lots of secret charms.
We asked you over on our Facebook page for your top tips on what is unmissable in Dubrovnik. Here's what you told us...
Take your time exploring the walled city
Oana Roua says:
Get at the Old Town of Dubrovnik at sunrise. You will be alone and you will enjoy the beautiful morning light reflecting on the marble streets. You can also actually hear the waves breaking into the rocks and enjoy the silence before the city gets full with tourists.
Michael Krimus says:
Take the tour around the Old City.
Oscar Suarez says:
Walk around the Old City, take a seat, have a coffee and see people passing by, get a gelato, seafood is superb.
Maja Demšar says:
Don't forget to drink water from the fountain in the Old City - the one who drinks from there returns to Dubrovnik. I certainly did.
Inde Wulfshon says:
Just walking around the city!
María Pampillón says:
There are a lot of pubs in the old quarter where you can enjoy the summer nights.
Eat plenty of locally made ice cream
Amy Cooknick says:
On the subject of food, they also have the best ice cream I've had anywhere!
Silindile Dube says:
Pizza and ice cream on the beach!
Ray Raymond says:
Pizza is the best I have ever had, and ice cream, too.
Isabell Koch says:
One should not miss the delicious ice cream!
Tathiana Rabello Xavier says:
Dubrovnik is beautiful! And the ice cream is delicious!
Walk along the city walls
Ian P.G. Brown says:
Without a doubt, walking the city walls. Get there early; I got there right after they opened and only saw two people the whole time I walked them.
Jason Percival says:
Cliff jumping from the old wall!
Milica Radic says:
Walk and coffee on the city walls.
Matt Yee says:
You can get some nice shots overlooking the old city from Dubrovnik Castle. The ticket for walking the wall also grants same-day entrance to the castle. It's about 2km around the wall, and then another km to the castle.
Brian Donovan says:
The walk along the walls of the city.
Carles Grau Galvany says:
Here we have the Dubrovnik wall, where Game of Thrones was filmed.
Nuno Relvas says:
Ancient city walls.
Valentina Hrr says:
Old Town, view from wall.
Zeke Lyons says:
Sunset from the wall.
Mark O'Sullivan says:
City walls. Views are amazing.
Monique Ribeiro says:
Relax at Cafe Buza
Nothing But Adventure says:
Down near the fort entrance - facing the sea there is a cool little hidden-away pub off the side of the cliff. If you can find it, this is an amazing spot to sit and unwind with some beverages to the sun setting.
Brian Donovan says:
Andi Sommer says:
The Buza bar!
Visit the war museums
Angela Rossetti says:
War photo museum [War Photo Limited].
Matt Yee says:
If you're there for a couple of days, hike up the hill to the fort and War Museum [Museum of Croatian War of Independence] one day. If you go 2-3 hours before sunset, you can visit the museum and then get some amazing shots of the old city below. At sunset, those red rooftops practically glow. You can take the tram back down to the city.
Cross the water to Lokrum
Kiara Gallop says:
Not strictly Dubrovnik, I know, but with its proximity to the following islands, it seems a shame not to explore them...kayak to Lokrum (that's the one in the photo above) and take a day trip to beautiful Mljet.
Marketa Vernerova says:
Sail to Lokrum.
Ebonya Ivey says:
Lokrum for swimming not only in the sea but also the lagoon! Don't forget your goggles; water salinity is quite high.
Evelyn Gallagher says:
Sea kayaking around the island of Lokrum with some snorkelling and lunch then heading back in as the sun sets! You get the most impressive view of Dubrovnik from the crystal-clear water. Stunning!
And while you’re there, don't forget...

Dubrovnik is King's Landing!
