About city Gallery Where to stay

If you went to Paris but failed to visit the Eiffel Tower, people would find that odd. The same applies if you go to Croatia but don’t visit Dubrovnik. It’s a city full of charm and 1300 years of history that hides behind its defensive wall. Together with Venice and Amsterdam, the city regularly forms the top 3 list of the most beautiful European cities, considered to be monuments to the Renaissance.

Walking along the aforementioned wall – reaching six metres in diameter at some points – you’ll see several interesting towers, forts and bastions. This two-kilometre-long wall is one of the best-preserved defensive strongholds in Europe. Whenever you get tired from walking, you’ll always have the option of sitting down and having some coffee in the local café situated right on the wall, or go down and have a swim in the sea below.

While in Dubrovnik, make sure you visit the Franciscan and Dominican monasteries, with their museums and the oldest pharmacy in Europe; the spectacular Vlah and Assumption of the Blessed Virgin churches; the oldest synagogue in Europe; and the Renaissance-style Sponza Palace with its numerous Gothic elements that safeguards the city’s historic documents and also has a functioning museum. One of Dubrovnik’s strongholds is now home to the Maritime Museum and an aquarium teeming with creatures native to the Mediterranean Sea.

The Orlando Column – a stone statue of a legendary knight – is located on Luza Square, right in front of the steeple. Every year, Dubrovnik’s Summer Festival is announced on this square by raising a flag. During the festival, which takes place July through August every year, the government of the city is transferred to artists, who are obliged to entertain the locals and tourists alike by putting on concerts, plays and shows.

The main street of Dubrovnik, called Stradun, has been a pedestrian zone for a long time now. The city locals like to go on dates by the famous Onofrio’s Fountain, which was created by well-known medieval architect Onofrio de la Cava.

Few tourists resist the temptation to visit the Bourbon Street that consists almost exclusively of bars. The most popular inns are as follows: the Cuban-style cocktail bar Hemingway, the tranquil Gradska Kava, and the youth-beloved Jazz Bar and Rock Café.

During recent years, the city has been enjoying a lot of attention from tourists thanks to several episodes of the world-famous TV series Game of Thrones being filmed here. In the series, Dubrovnik’s walls form the basis of the imaginary medieval world’s capital – King’s Landing. Many tourists find these places, made popular by the show’s mystical world, much more interesting than the actual history of the city.

Dubrovnik is known for its seafood, lamb-based dishes and some of the world’s best wine, made in the region of Dalmatia.

The city has a lift that takes tourists to the 405-metre-high peak of the Mount Srđ, which opens up on a fantastic panorama of the Old Town and the island-filled sea. These islands, located at an arm’s reach from the city, can be reached by small boats.

Croatia’s coastal stretch of the Adriatic Sea is considered to be clearest in the whole Mediterranean Basin – the local beaches have been getting “Azure Flags” for the cleanliness of the water for many, many years.
