  • DUBROVNIK, CROATIA CITY GUIDE

GETTING AROUND DUBROVNIK

Dubrovnik is both hilly and compact, and is best explored on foot as the Old Town is closed to cars. Buses run regularly if you hope to venture further along the coast, and taxis are also readily available—though can be quite expensive. As always, we recommend checking with your hotel concierge for advice on the best way to reach any particular destination.

THINGS TO DO IN DUBROVNIK

1. EXPLORE OLD TOWN AND MARKET

Our tour ends in Dubrovnik, and a guided tour of Old Town includes the Stradun Promenade and other nearby sites, Pile Gate, and the fortified walls. There is more to see and do here, so head out to wander the quaint streets, enjoy an aperitif, and stop to explore as you like! The oldest market in Dubrovnik is located in the prominent, baroque square of Gunduliceva Poljana.

2. WAR PHOTO LIMITED

Located in Old Town, this gallery features two floors of photography exhibits by world-renowned photojournalists covering recent and ongoing wars and conflicts. The photographs are intended to educate and expose the myth of war and power, and expose the impact it has on civilians and combatants alike.

3. MT SRD AND CABLE CAR

Enjoy breathtaking views of Dubrovnik and the Adriatic Sea via a cable car ride up to the top of Mount Srd. There is also an option to hike in either direction. A top Mt. Srd you can also tour the Croatian Homeland War Museum housed inside the Imperial Fortress.

4 LOKRUM ISLAND

Ferries regularly depart from Dubrovnik’s Old Port, and it is a quick 15-minute trip to Lokrum Island, where you can spend the day walking the forested trails and swimming in the lagoon or off the rocky beaches.

5. DAY TRIP TO MONTENEGRO

While here, why not visit one more country full of natural wonder? Montenegro sits just south of Croatia; most day tours take you to the Bay of Kotor, about an hour’s drive from Dubrovnik. Check with your hotel concierge for last-minute options, or plan ahead to extend your stay independently!
