Dubrovnik, Croatia

 

 

 

  Croatia's most glamorous tourist destination

 

 

 

Bird's View of Old Town of Dubrovnik, Croatia

 

Dubrovnik - proudly on a UNESCO World Heritage site - is one of the most beautiful fortified cities in the world.

 

 

City's all main sights lie in Stari Grad (Old Town) nesting within sturdy medieval defensive walls, an area that is compact and car-free.

 

 

Already beloved for its splendid seaside location and easy airport access, the Mediterranean city of Dubrovnik has become even more famous in recent years as the fictional setting of King's Landing in the popular television show Game of Thrones.

 

The medieval walls that run nearly 2 km around the Old City date back to the 16th century, and its pedestrian-only roads help maintain the historically preserved atmosphere.


Many residents have moved out from the Old Town and now rent their apartments to visitors.    

 


For those looking to live outside the tiny Old City, upscale Ploče sits just to the east on the waterfront, while the Lapad peninsula, 3 km to the north, is popular for its walkable promenades and bay views.   

 

New in July 2010 is a cable car, which takes visitors up to the top of Mount Srdj for fantastic views down onto the Old Town and out to sea.

 

 

While in Dubrovnik, you will be faced with a long list of sights you will be tempted to explore.
