About Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is an old city. Like, really old. The first document mentioning Dubrovnik as a city dates back to 1072, when it was granted the status of a free royal city by the king of Croatia, Petar Krešimir IV. It might lead you to wonder what a city with origins dating back to Medieval times has to offer visitors in the 21st century. Well, it turns out quite a lot. In recent years, Dubrovnik has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Croatia and is increasingly on the bucket lists of travelers around the world.

What makes Dubrovnik so popular? The city is absolutely stunning. It is located on the Adriatic Sea and surrounded by a high stone wall, while the old town is set in a picturesque bay. The beauty of the city has been compared to that of the finest Hollywood film sets Dubrovnik was spared during the Croatian War of Independence (1991-1995) and saw no damage from bombing or shelling. As a result, it’s considered one of the most well-preserved medieval cities in Europe. Dubrovnik became a World Heritage Site in 1979.

In addition to its unspoiled beauty, Dubrovnik offers plenty for visitors to do. You can visit churches, enjoy wine tasting sessions at some of Croatia’s best wineries, explore museums (including an impressive collection of paintings by Spanish masters), take boat trips to nearby destinations like Croatia’s Elafiti islands, and much more! Dubrovnik also has a number of festivals each year—some annual and others monthly—that provide visitors with an opportunity to experience local culture. And if you’re looking for something to do while you’re here, you could try water sports and rafting or go hiking in nearby national parks.

Dubrovnik offers a wide range of attractions for the traveler, but it’s still important to plan your visit carefully. Dubrovnik has four distinct seasons, so you’ll need to know when to go in order to make sure you hit the right sights. Dubrovnik’s peak season is from June to September and this is when you should plan your visit if possible. The city can get very crowded during this time, but it also offers good weather, lots of events and festivals, and the best prices on accommodations. If you can’t visit during peak season, consider a trip in October or April-June when there are fewer crowds and lower prices. If you mainly want to enjoy the outdoors or do some skiing or hiking, February-April are better months for these activities as well.

Dubrovnik is home to a number of museums, galleries, and other cultural sites. The city’s most famous museum is the Dubrovnik City Museum, which was founded in 1888 by archduke Ludwig Salvator and today houses artifacts from Dubrovnik’s Austro-Hungarian history. Other museums worth visiting include the Lapidary Museum, which has a collection of ancient Roman stones; the Maritime Museum, which houses a huge model of a 17th-century ship; and the Dominican Monastery Museum, which displays religious items from 16th century Catholicism. Dubrovnik’s old town is also worth exploring. You can wander its narrow lanes and admire its architecture while getting lost in time. Be sure to explore some of the squares like Onofrio’s Fountain Square and Pile Square while you are there. You can even go on a walking tour with one of Dubrovnik’s dulcimers!

One of the major tourist draws in the city is the Dubrovnik Summer Festival which is a 45-day long cultural event that includes live plays, games and live concerts. The festival sees thousands of people travel to the city every year to partake in some of the most fascinating events in the world.

It’s not a difficult decision to make where to stay in Dubrovnik. So many choices, so little time! Whether you want a family-friendly hotel, a romantic boutique hotel or a party hostel, the city of Dubrovnik has something for everyone.

When you walk through the city, you’ll find that many of the restaurants and cafes are covered in terraces. There are two reasons for this: 1) Dubrovnik is on the coast so it has a Mediterranean climate which means that people enjoy sitting outside; and 2) Dubrovnik is famous for its delicious food. Croatian cuisine is well-known around the world, and Dubrovnik is no exception. From fresh seafood to cheese to vegetables, there are plenty of options to suit every taste. One popular dish in Dubrovnik is grilled octopus with parsley potatoes – it’s perfect for any traveler looking for a taste of Croatia. If you want to try something different, make sure you stop by one of the local markets. These lively bazaars are packed with locals and visitors who come from all corners of Croatia to buy their groceries. You can find anything from fresh fruits and vegetables to freshly baked breads, meat, fish, and much more!
