- DubrovnikNov 24, 2013
Dubrovnik is a city that should not be missed while visiting Croatia. It is representative of everything historical and fun, like Amsterdam and other major European landmarks. If you do the castle walls, get there at 8am (park by 7:30am), especially in summer as it gets hot early in the day. We saw many people complaining of heat problems and the crowds are crazy at that time. Wear your sunblock either way but again, early is also better for photos. We ate at great little restaurant with an Octopus salad that was worthy of any Beverly Hills restaurant at $20 a plate. The amazing thing about Dubrovnik is the great areas surrounding the old town as well, so peaceful and sweet. Nice locals who appreciate the business.

Dubrovnik was one of the stops of the Oceania cruise that we took in 2007. When we docked in Dubrovnik, we took one of the taxis lined up outside (negotiating the price before we got into the car). We asked to take us to a couple of spots up the mountain where you can get some spectacular views of the city and the surroundings. Then the taxi dropped us off in the center of Dubrovnik and we explored on our own. And at the end took a taxi back to the ship. We loved the old town and walking the walls surrounding it. I would like one day to come to Dubrovnik for a few days and enjoy it fully.

Dubrovnik is one of those nearly perfect vacation cities. It's got history, culture, architecture and art in abundance. And then there are the beautiful nearby beaches, the adventure of arriving by overnight ferry, and the delicious food. I paid a ridiculously small sum of money to stay just outside the historic city center (I'd highly suggest staying within the walls; if you get approached by locals with rooms, don't promise anything until your hosts can show you on a map where their house is located). Come in summer when the summer festival means nightly performances of opera, musicals or jazz. Walk the city walls for breathtaking views.

After Split, Dubrovnik will seem like the most beautiful, perfectly constructed city ever. In fact, Dubrovnik probably looks this way after any city, objectively. Due in large part to ancient city ordinances which prohibit cars and advertisements and which compel residents to maintain their red-shingled roofs and green window-shutters, Dubrovnik's old town seems to have broken free from time's lock-step march onward.
Walking down the main street of old town, which actually used to be a river separating two ancient townships, almost every building will catch your eye-- indeed, they're all beautiful, working in seemingly perfect harmony with every other building in town.
Be cautious when visiting in the summer. Large numbers of tourists mob this city yearly, booking up all available hotels and other accommodation. This should be cause for concern for travelers-- sleeping arrangements are going to be more expensive in Dubrovnik than elsewhere in Croatia and one should be sure to book in advance to be safe. If you do manage to find a place to stay, the summer festivals are not to be missed-- they turn the already enchanting city into a magically energized fantasy throbbing with life and energy.

Captivating city, Dubrovnik is unique in its own ways and situated on the countries coastline. There are fantastic views of the city, sea and neighboring islands from every angle. Inside the city walls have been well repaired since the wars, but every now and then you can spot bullet holes in the walls. The history of this city is still alive and recognized, well worth a visit! Prices are decent and the people are friendly.

Dubrovnik is a city on the Adriatic Sea coast of Croatia. It is a walled city based on maritime trade. It can get very busy with multiple cruise ships docking in the summer. Go after the cruise ships have left to get an entirely different perspective. Lots of shops and restaurants within the walls.

Largely undiscovered by tourists until the mid-90s, this magnificent city soon became Central Europe’s new must-see destination. With its soaring medieval walls, marble streets, ornate Baroque buildings, and prime location on the Adriatic, it really is stunning. Take a walk atop the fabled walls, explore its historic palaces and monasteries, while away the afternoon at one of its many charming cafes, and swim or kayak in its sparkling waters.

Dubrovnik makes you feel like you are in a pirate town... The architecture is beautiful mix of Mediterranean & Venetian... Streets are so clean that you want to take of your shoes and walk bare feet... And when you walk on the wall; most of the time you are amazed by the colours that the Adriatic offers you.

This was my first walled, coastal city to see, so for me it was quite the novelty.
Corridors, alleyways, hidden passages, random church processions, and billions of British tourists are totally my thing, and Dubrovnik had them in spades.
You can rent rooms on hostelworld.com for both within the city and without, but beware----we had bedbugs in our first room and it was disgusting. Luckily they didn't come back with us, but still....
Obviously that has nothing to do with the city and you should definitely still go. Plenty of good pizza places. Be warned that no Croatians actually live in the walled city.
