10 Things to Do in Dubrovnik That You Shouldn't Miss

February 28, 2018 Hana Mouser

Dubrovnik has recovered from the war damage it suffered during the 1990s, and visitors have returned to this tranquil city. Nestled between the Adriatic and the Dinaric Alps, it’s an accessible and affordable city break for many European travelers. The pedestrian-only Old Town is especially charming.

Ancient City Walls

Reviewed By crosis - Whanganui, New Zealand

We took around 2 hours with our many photo stops, and it is worth every second. The views are spectacular and the history amazing.
Approximately 1.9km in total (excluding side detours up towers) it can be walked in one continuous loop so you can start and finish at the same location. We started at the Ploce Gate and this was ideal as when you come off the wall the main port area and city street are just at the base.

Old Town

Reviewed By dermaflo69 - OAKLAND

This place is magnificent. Almost took the Game of Thrones tour. So glad I didn’t do it. Walking the wall and looking down on the old town and the surrounding vista was breathtaking. I was glad it wasn’t crowded because I was able to take my time to imagine life as it was. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes because there are many stairs to climb and the terrain is not even.

Dubrovnik Cable Car

Reviewed By JandJ67 - Minneapolis Mn

This ride up the mountain that towers over Dubrovnik is first class, with excellent equipment and modern facilities. Once up, the view up and down the coastline and down on Dubrovnik is breathtaking. The cafe at the top has good food and drink at reasonable prices.

Gornji Ugao Tower

An excavation on the site of the 'Gornji ugao' tower, in the north-west corner of the walled city of Dubrovnik, in Croatia, uncovered evidence for a foundry established in the second half of the 15th century and largely producing armaments. It is a rare example of this type of industrial site, and its position within the city walls makes it unique. Excavation has provided information on the technical subdivision and spatial logic of the site. Activity at the foundry ceased after the Great Earthquake in 1667, which devastated the entire city, although part of the site continued in use as a foundry, on a smaller and more improvised scale.

This place was not well-signposted or particularly easy to find, but my goodness am I glad I did! It is very reasonably priced and our tour guide had excellent technical knowledge about the workings of a medieval foundry - despite English not being his native language. This is a must see for those who love archaeology.

Reviewed By Austin T - Chicago, Illinois

Walked here being close to Hotel Lapad and was asked if we wanted to sample their three different wines before ordering...I thought that to be pretty gratuitous so we did. The Red was outstanding...if you enjoy red wine. The other two weren’t bad, we just enjoyed the red the best. They offered us the winery tour which we declined at $200 Kuna, or approx. $63.00 US per couple. Listen! This isn’t Napa Valley, California. We saw a couple go on the tour only to come out of another room 10 minutes later and eat a small assortment of meats and cheese. In other words, enjoy the wine, I don’t think the tour thing is worth the price. Great little place inside with some wine vessels dating back to hundreds of years...I’d go in again just to look at them. The proprietors were nice and pleasant to meet and talk to.

I love this odd little island that Croatia has to offer. Much more comfortable than Hvar. Interesting terrain outside of town. Lavender galore of course! Town is c perfect. There are historical things to see, great food and drink, interesting shops, cafes, great views, Hotel Korea was terrific with a beach outside our front door. Beautiful area to relax or live!

It is the intent of War Photo Limited to educate the public in the field of war photography, to expose the myth of war and the intoxication of war, to let people see war as it is, raw, venal, frightening, by focusing on how war inflicts injustices on innocents and combatants alike.

It would be churlish to call this an "enjoyable experience" and it is not for the faint hearted. The Balkans conflict is central to Dubrovnik's recent history and is captured poignantly here.
There are also changing Exhibitions reflecting other war-torn communities. A sober reminder of humanity at its worst in these unflinching collections.

Island of Lokrum

Reviewed By richiegym - Wirral, United Kingdom

Loved this little island, although small you can easily fill a day with things to do and see! Starts with a pleasant little boat trip.. 10-15 mins from Dubrovnik harbour. Wild rabbits and peacocks walk freely around the island. Nice places to eat and drink and reasonably priced, one of the highlights is the amazing little lagoon for swimming and bathing.
