Travel Tips and Guides for Dubrovnik

Exploring Dubrovnik's Old Town

Just a couple of steps in and already you feel like you stepped back in time! A UNESCO world heritage site filled with steep alley stairways and marching guards; just a handful of things which make Dubrovnik's Old Town so special.

36 Hours in Dubrovnik

'If you want to see heaven on earth, come to Dubrovnik.' Even after eighty-seven years, we couldn't agree more with George Bernard Shaw. It is virtually impossible not to be charmed by the old town of Dubrovnik; an extremely good-looking historical gem jutting out from the Dalmatian coast. You may recognise its ancient city walls from the mega fantasy series that is Game of Thrones. One can almost imagine Daenerys Targaryen looking wistfully out to the glistening Adriatic Sea…minus the dragons and gory battles. In fact this image of Dubrovnik as a glamorous port isn't straying too far from the truth. During its Golden Age (15th and 16th centuries) the town was a stomping ground for seafaring aristocrats of the Republic of Ragusa. Flash forward a few centuries and stone walkways have been polished and buffed from years of well-heeled traders and now hosts visitors, celebrities included, who yearn for the perfect balance of historical sights and chic Mediterranean lifestyle.
