Welcome to Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik was founded in the 7th century, and has a rich and varied history. Although the city’s historic wealth came from its role as a major seaport and trade hub, today the city’s economy depends on its prowess as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Mediterranean.

Where to Stay
As with all cities, deciding where to stay in Dubrovnik depends entirely on what sort of surroundings you’re looking for. That said, Dubrovnik is fairly small in size as far as cities go - with a native population of only around 45,000, and city limits that cover just 21 square kilometres. Like all cities, Dubrovnik is divided into several distinct districts. Within Dubrovnik’s ancient walls, visitors will find the Old Town, which contains many of the city’s most sought-out attractions, as well as a wide selection of restaurants, bars and cafes. East of the Old Town district is Ploče, which contains many waterfront properties and the Banje beach - largest public beach in the city. If you’re looking for something a little more peaceful, the Lapad district may be for you - though lacking in historic attractions, the area is home to the Park šuma Velika i Mala Petka. As for Dubrovnik, some of the Wimdu best holiday homes are in Croatia.
Things To Do
Oozing historic charm and architecture from bygone eras, the Old Town of Dubrovnik features many of the city’s most famous attractions. The old city walls are in themselves an attraction. Built in the 10th century, and modified in later centuries, the walls reach as high as six metres and in places are up to six metres thick! With a total length of 2 kilometres, they make the perfect city walk, and offer some of the best views over the Adriatic Sea. Highlights of the wall walk include the four fortresses: the Lovrjenac Fort, the Revelin Fort, the Boka Tower and the Minceta Tower. Within the walls, you’ll find breathtaking architecture such as that of the Baroque-style Dubrovnik Cathedral, built upon the foundations of an earlier 6th-century structure. Inside the Cathedral, you’ll find the Treasury, which boasts a wealth of ancient holy relics, including a portion of the cross and 138 gold and silver reliquaries.
Eating and Drinking
Dubrovnik is home to a huge selection of restaurants, many of them catering to the large numbers of tourists that flock to the city every year. As well as having a magnificent range of high-quality establishments, serving great cuisine, there are also a few bland and over priced tourist traps - so it’s worth the extra effort of checking online reviews before deciding where to go. Regional cuisine is unsurprisingly focused largely on seafood, and many restaurants reflect this in their menus. A fresh catch, full of flavour, is exactly what you should expect. If you have a hankering for something a little different, you can find more typical continental cuisine if you head further inland. Here, you’ll find the cuisine a little more varied, as you move away from the seafood-dominated Mediterranean cuisine and closer to the heavier Central European fare. Croatian grilled meats are a delicious staple of the national cuisine.
Despite having no trains or trams, public transport in Dubrovnik is still fairly efficient. The city’s extensive bus networks stretch out across the region, making it easy to get from A to B. Most local bus networks, running between the city neighbourhoods, provide transport from dawn until midnight. The city has its own international airport, located 12 miles southeast of the centre, and buses run regularly between the airport and Dubrovnik’s former main bus station, located in the Gruž neighbourhood. Other forms of transport in the city include taxis - if you take a cab, be sure to negotiate a price beforehand to avoid being cheated. Typical rides start with a charge of 25kn on the meter, with an additional charge of 8kn per kilometre. Car hire is also an option, though you should beware that congestion and lack of suitable parking make driving in Dubrovnik rather more stress than it might be worth, unless you plan to leave the city.
