What To See
There is so much to do and see in Dubrovnik, but try out the following experiences to get the full feel of the city.
Dubrovnik Cable Car
Why limit yourself to sightseeing on the ground when you can do it from the inside of a cable car? The best way to enjoy a panoramic view of the ancient city is by gliding to the top of Mount Srdj on an ultramodern cable car. These cars offer visitors a quick and easy scenic route to the peak of the mountain.
At the top, you can enjoy many activities such as a souvenir shop, a small museum, hiking trails, and a panorama restaurant - which has a breathtaking view of the entire city and the surrounding sea and islands.
Stradun is the main street in Dubrovnik Old Town, which divides the town into two close to equal parts. This beautiful street is closed to traffic, making it accessible to pedestrians only. Visitors can shop for souvenirs, enjoy an ice cream at a sidewalk cafe, or join the locals for the traditional evening stroll.
When visiting Dubrovnik, there is no way you can miss this promenade, as most routes simply lead to it.
This fortress, which serves as a backdrop in some of the most memorable scenes from the “Game of Thrones” series, was constructed to repel attackers from both land and sea. Its original structure, which dates back to at least 1301, holds a triangle shape and staggered terraces to accommodate the shape of the rock underneath.
Today, pictured above, Lovrijenac is known for hosting a variety of cultural events, such as world series of cliff diving and plays including Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
