Lovely views of Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is a Croatian city by the Adriatic sea, also known as the “Pearl of Adriatic”. The old town of Dubrovnik flourished when it became the center of maritime trade during the 15th and 16th centuries. It is one of the most popular destinations to visit in Europe!

Old Town

Pile Gate” is the entrance to the old town, which is located right in front of the bus stop. After passing the gate you will reach the main street called Placa thoroughfare(Stradun).

The Old Town itself is not as big as it looks like, but all the narrow streets, pathways, and stairs are stunning! You can enjoy just by walking around.

Dubrovnik is sandwiched between the mountains and the sea, so there are many steps. The view from the top is beautiful.

The most famous tourist attraction is taking a walk on the City walls. You can climb up the walls and take a walk around the Old town. You will get see a great view of the beautiful Adriatic sea and terracotta roofs city views. It will take an hour or two to complete walking around the walls.

In August when I visited Dubrovnik, unfortunately I did not try due to the very hot weather. During the summer time, it is recommended to visit early in the morning.




Mount Srd

Mount Srd is 412 meters above sea level. From the top you can have a lovely view of the whole city!

You can either hike or take the cable car to the top. You can access to the cable car by walking from the old town, so I recommend going after taking a look through the town.

 

– Dubrovnik Cable Car –

It became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, but temporarily to the List of World Heritage Site in Danger with the past civil war and many big earthquakes. However it was restored after the war, and became an UNESCO World Heritage site again in 1994.

Croatia has been independent for only 26 years (independent in 1991) ,  however it is filled with history, beautiful scenery, and delicious seafood which attracts people around the world to Dubrovnik.

I hope you enjoy your stay in Dubrovnik as much as I did!
