Best things to do in Dubrovnik
- Stroll the shimmering streets of the Old Town, a stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wander down the café-lined walkways or venture off the beaten track into one of the many unique and charming alleys, where you’ll find a variety of local restaurants and shops tucked just out of sight.
- Elevate your experience of this incredible city by taking Dubrovnik’s cable car to the top of Mount Srd. From here, embrace unparalleled views of the sparkling Adriatic Sea and the lush green island of Lokrum. Enjoy this incredible vista just as the sun goes down, and watch the ancient walls of the historic city light up as the night descends.
- Walk the walls and forts encompassing the ancient city and you’ll see Dubrovnik’s historical centre from every angle. Take in unobstructed views over the Adriatic Sea and soak up sweeping glimpses of the distinct red rooftops of the Old Town.
- Head seaward and take a ferry to the nearby island of Lokrum. This lush oasis is only 10 minutes away and is the perfect place to enjoy a day of tranquillity. Visit the island’s medieval Benedictine monastery or go to the beach for a dip in the stunning azure sea.
- Experience Dubrovnik’s architecture at its finest at the 16th century Sponza Palace. Enter the palace and see the dazzling architecture for yourself, boasting an exotic blend of Gothic and Renaissance influences.
- Tuck into delicious Dalmatian cuisine and dine on modern European dishes when in Dubrovnik. Pantarul in Lapad is a go-to for traditional flavours, while LAJK is a must for fresh seafood in the heart of the Old Town.
