Villas in Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik, in the extreme south of Croatia, was proclaimed by Lord Byron to be ‘the Pearl of the Adriatic ‘. It is a very special place with magnificent marble streets and baroque buildings glistening in the sunshine. Dubrovnik has perhaps become more popular recently after it was featured in the popular series, Game of Thrones, and there are many references to the television show around the city. It is not hard to see why they chose to film here as the city seems to transport you back in time. There are, of course, many modern enhancements such as wonderful restaurants and boutique shops but, on the whole, it is the history that is most impactful and magical as you explore. Many of the restaurants and cocktail bars are blessed with amazing views, either out to sea or across the beautiful city.
Things we love…
“We highly recommend a walk around the walls of Dubrovnik. For around 200 Kuna, you can walk the entire circumference of the city, taking in the spectacular views of the terracotta roofs, interesting architecture, stunning gardens and, of course, the Adriatic Sea beyond. The sea sparkles a beautiful blue and is practically transparent to the sea bed, apparently down to the high salt content, making it very unique indeed.”
Things to be aware of…
“Eating out in the Old Town, or just outside the walls, can be pricey, especially when the establishments boast such sensational views! However, it is possible to find cheaper places to eat and it is worth exploring the different areas of Dubrovnik such as Gruz and Lapad where you will find many more restaurants and bars to enjoy.”
