Along the beautiful blue Adriatic sea you find the historic town Dubrovnik. Visit Dubrovnik in spring for a mild warm climate, lot of sunshine and plenty of spots to visit. This UNESCO town is a perfect holiday destination, the old town centre is traffic-free, making it a lovely town to stroll through, visit the churches and museums and of course take a walk on the beautiful old city wall with plenty of photo-opportunities. Try the delicious local Mediterranean food, walk through the narrow streets and look for souvenirs in the small shops, walk along the main street ‘Stradun’ and enjoy an ice cream.
The Stradun is a 300 m long street which connects the western city gate the “Pile Gate” (Vrata od Pila) to the eastern city gate, the “Ploče Gate” (Vrata od Ploča). Near these old city-gates you can also find 15th century fountains and two bell towers – the large Large Onofrio’s Fountain in the west and the small Onofrio’s Fountain in the east of the street.
Game of Thrones filming locations
At various locations in and around Dubrovnik recordings were made for the popular television series ‘Game of Thrones’. There are organized walks along and through these locations, but you can also search for them yourself. Some of these places are St. Dominic Street, Fort Lovrijenac, Fort Bokar, Knežev castle, Sponza Palace, and Minčeta tower. Just outside Dubrovnik filming locations were the beautiful island of Lokrum, which you can reach in about 10 minutes by boat from the old harbour, and the peaceful green garden arboretum Trsteno on the coast just north of Dubrovnik.
There is plenty to do and see near Dubrovnik. In the region you find many hotels, resorts and camp-sites. It is ideal if you have a car available, but also by bus you can travel to the various places around Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik has its own airport, where you can also rent-a-car.
The pretty fishing village of Cavtat south of Dubrovnik offers beautiful resorts, a small port, clear blue sea and lots of green surroundings! In the mountainous hinterland with beautiful high cypresses, you can still find authentic villages and restaurants and also some walking and cycling routes.
A visit to the Peljesac peninsula and the island of Korcula is highly recommended, see the old wall and salt production in Ston, sample fine wines and local dishes and enjoy the beautiful beaches.
