About Dubrovnik

The historic and beautiful town of Dubrovnik has re-emerged as a cosmopolitan destination for travellers looking for something just a little different - medieval charm, Mediterranean sun and laid-back sophistication.

Things to see and do

  • Rector's Palace - A beautiful Renaissance palace housing a fascinating museum and art gallery; it's often used for concerts due to its superb acoustics.
  • Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary - This magnificent cathedral replaced the original which was built with money donated by Richard the Lionheart.
  • Sponza Palace - This is a perfect example of Dubrovnik's unique melding of Gothic and Renaissance architecture. Today it houses the city archives.
  • Fort Lovrijenac - Dubrovnik's instantly recognisable fortress has been defending the city since the 11th-century, though in more recent years it has been used as a theatre.
  • Franciscan Monastery - This beautiful monastery has a stunning baroque church attached, the oldest pharmacy in the world and its own museum.
  • Orofrios Great Fountain - This marvel of engineering was built in the 15th century with an aqueduct to bring fresh water to the city from a spring 20km away. Still a drinking fountain it is a great place to stop and people watch.
  • Take a stroll up and down the Placa Stradun, the city's main thoroughfare, particularly in the early evening when the locals come out to promenade.
  • For the best views of the city, take a walk around the top of the medieval city walls.
  • Enjoy an afternoon on the beach at the Lapad Peninsula, a small wooded area just outside the city that is a popular beauty spot
  • Take a ferry to the island of Lokrum to see the monastery, fort and botanical gardens - and fabulous views of the city on your return.

A complete one week Croatia road trip itinerary

This summer, I just fancied a road trip in Croatia. I had one week or so to spare, and knew that I wanted to spend my week doing a mixture of city exploring in Dubrovnik, spending lazy days on the twinkly Adriatic Sea and sample delicious food. Before I knew it, I had a planned an epic Croatia road trip, starting in Dubrovnik in the South, to Pula in the North. In fact, we realised that Lake Bled in Slovenia was really close, so it made sense to continue all the way north into the Julian Alps...

Dubrovnik vs Kotor: A tale of 2 Dalmatian cities

As you leave the altitude and cloud cover behind and descend into Dubrovnik, you’ll see stunning scenery below that’s reminiscent of a mountainous Tuscany or a balmy Balkan answer to the Norwegian Fjords. This section of Adriatic coast is defined by dramatic cliffs and slices of blue sea glistening in the sun, punctuated by the occasional trailing line of speed boat spray; it is perfect vacation territory....
