Dubrovnik City Info

Dubrovnik is a beautiful city situated on the southerly coast of Croatia. Once heralded as ‘the pearl of the Adriatic’ by Lord Byron, Dubrovnik is famed for its medieval beauty and inspiring architecture. With its diverse landscape, Dubrovnik is situated between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, ensuring there is a huge array of things to keep you occupied during your stay. Whether is it is skiing during the winter months, or swimming and exploring during the summer, Dubrovnik is a fun packed destination with plenty to offer. Not to mention, Dubrovnik is perfectly situated to provide a great base to explore the surrounding coast lines, hosting nearly 2,000 islands, inlets and reefs within driving distance. A coastline famed for being one of the most diverse in the Mediterranean.

  • Dubrovnik Old Town: Packed full of locals with a lot going on the old town is one of the most interesting experiences in Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik Old Town is a place to interact with locals, sample cheap local cuisine and experience the Dubrovnik culture first hand. With classical music coming from a local act on every street corner and the enclosure of being surrounded by the ancient city walls, Dubrovnik Old Town should be top on your places to visit. You can even climb the city walls for as little as 10 Euros and enjoy the unique experience of exploring the tiny, historical side streets that make Dubrovnik the unique place it is.
  • Lopud Island: You can get to this small island for about £5 at 10am from Gruz harbour and it is well worth it. The island is isolated, beautiful and full of cafes that offer local cuisine and spots to enjoy the stunning views. Lopud Island is a great place to go and chill out, with its parameter so small, you can't get lost and with over 8 restaurants there is plenty to enjoy. We advise taking a stroll around the island, with no traffic or cars and only hoards of goats to guide you it's the perfect escape during your visit to Dubrovnik.
  • War Photo limited: As one of Dubrovnik's top museums, the war photo limited museum acts as a telling reminder that up until fairly recently, Dubrovnik was a war zone. With its permanent ex-Yugoslav collection, the photos and videos alone are worth the visit. Each photo is described in multiple languages and offers some insightful portraits into how Dubrovnik was affected and impacted by the war.
