Whether you’re visiting Dubrovnik for the first or the hundredth time, it never gets old. We have selected Dubrovnik’s most impressive sights just for you!
Dubrovnik’s many sights certainly justify it being called 'the pearl of the Adriatic'. The picturesque old city centre with its narrow lanes and alleys, its majestic cathedral, palaces and fortresses breathes the city’s rich Hungarian history.
The most famous of Dubrovnik’s sights is the old city wall. It dates from the 10th century and is an incredible 6 metres wide and 6 metres high in some places. At almost 2 kilometres long, the wall is perfect for a stroll through history and has a fantastic view of the city and the Adriatic Sea.
The spectacular Stradun is one of the most picturesque pedestrian streets in Europe. Famous for its white limestone paving, it attracts visitors and residents who enjoy sitting back and watching the world go by. Pull up a chair at one of the many lovely cafés and restaurants and recharge your batteries after a long day of sightseeing.
Fort Lovrijenac is sometimes called Dubrovnik Gibraltar because of its location on a rocky outcrop just beyond the western city wall. For a long time, it was one of the most important forts of Croatia. What makes it special is its triangular layout with three terraces. The fort is accessible via two drawbridges and is encircled by a 12-metre-thick wall.
If you want to take a day trip during your city trip to Dubrovnik, the pretty island of Lokrum is a definite must-see. It lies only 600 metres from the banks of Dubrovnik and you can get there by ferry. You will be pleasantly surprised by the island’s French Fort Royal, its botanical garden and the many trails. And if you feel like taking it easy, you can relax in the former convent, now a restaurant.
