Top 5 Things to do in Dubrovnik

The pearl of the Adriatic as Dubrovnik is called, was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site as far back as 1970. However, tourism has recently picked up in Croatia’s capital city, partly thanks to the popular TV series Game of Thrones, part of which has been shot in Dubrovnik. Here are some of the best ways to soak in everything that this gorgeous seaside city has to offer.  

Stay at the Villa Dubrovnik

This 5 star resort, which is located on a rocky outcrop that overlooks the Old Town, is the perfect hotel for a romantic stay-cation. The rooms are fitted with the finest Egyptian cotton, and come with balconies that overlook both the Old Town as well as the sea.  The Bar Giardino, the hotel bar, has some of the best views in the city, and serves up excellent Mediterranean cocktails.

The city beach is very popular and has activities such as jet skis and inflatables for kids. However, there is a quieter option a little farther away – beyond the quiet, leafy streets of Vlaha Bukovca, is Sveti Jakov, is a favourite with locals. The beach, which is partly filled with pebbles, provides the most beautiful views of the Old Town. There are even bars and restaurants here, where you can hang out in the evening.

Eat a Meal at Nautika

This restaurant is the snazziest in town, and popular with all the high profile visitors to Dubrovnik. Get ready for a formal evening, with starched white linens, and dinner on a terrace overlooking the city. There is even a sea-view table, which might just be the highlight of your holiday. Be sure to try the seafood here, which is as fresh as you’ll ever taste it.  Some of the must-try dishes are the Cream of scampi soup with black truffles and the traditional lopud brodet.

Walk Through Old Town

Spend an afternoon walking through the market place in Old Town, which is a beautiful baroque square.  Here, you will find the freshest fruits and vegetables as well as dried fruits. Saturday, however, is the day when the market comes alive – there are artisans selling cheese, Mediterranean spices, olives, saffron and other exotic delights that also make for excellent souvenirs. A quirky tradition in the market is that at noon, as the stalls wind up, an official comes with a bucket of corn kernels, which are thrown to the pigeons waiting close by. This is a sight to behold, as hundreds of birds fill the sky.

Stroll Through the City walls

Dubrovnik is a fortified city with walls that surround it from all sides. These walls, which were built in the Middle Ages are still intact, and are 6365 feet long. A walk along the walls is a good way to get an elevated perspective of the city. These walls, which were built to protect the city from invaders, are now popular with tourists. The walls also have ladders that lead into the waters, where you can now climb down and jump in for a quick dip in the Adriatic. However, this is recommended only for those with strong swimming skills.
