Dubrovnik City city breaks

This captivating Croatian gem gives a terracotta twist to city life. Explore old walls that surround museums, shopping streets, and a blend of traditional and new-age eateries. And, if that’s not enough, the pebbly beaches will be beckoning. Festivals liven things up a notch around the calendar, too!

Wall-to-wall history

Wall-to-wall history

Set aside two or so hours to walk the 1,940 metres of old stone city walls. They’ve been the focal point of Dubrovnik since the 16th century, and there are fortresses and museums to discover as part of the journey. From various viewpoints within the walls, you can gaze down at the azure water below.

A bit of everything

A bit of everything

Between the shopping, relaxing on the beaches, and drinking and dining, this is a city with bags to offer. Game of Thrones fan? Dubrovnik was used as one of the main filming locations, and for none other than the incredible King’s Landing. You’ll find the odd company advertising special tours around the site.

Wine bars and cellars aren’t too hard to come by, so if you’re after the laid-back vibe, Dubrovnik serves it up, once glass at a time. As for nightclubs, there’s one in the old Revelin Tower, which is the city’s biggest and best. Think dance parties and international DJ sets.

Sightseeing
The commanding walls of the Old Town are definitely top of the list. But Rector’s Palace is a Gothic-Renaissance building that features period treasures from the past. Dubrovnik Cathedral hosts artworks by Italian masters, while Pile Gate and its drawbridge are just two parts of a fascinating historic fortress.

Eating and drinking
What to order first? We reckon the finest catch of the day. With it being right on the waterfront, Dubrovnik’s in a great place for netting sumptuous seafood. It’s on the menu in fancy restaurants, and simpler digs too. Octopus burgers and simple Bosnian dishes are also two hot tips for foodies.

Shopping
Expect everything from your classic souvenir shop to seriously chic boutiques. And they rub shoulders with vibrant open-air markets, too. For international brands, flock to Stradun. Seeking mementos? Local sweets, olive oil, wine and bath salts can be found from various small outlets and vendors dotted around.

Getting around
Getting out and about on foot is generally the best way to see the city. But if you want to cover a lot of ground, bus tours will help you out. You can get 24-hour cards that make certain museum and gallery entry free, and you can rest your legs on public transport.
