Best things to do in Dubrovnik
Located in the southern part of Croatia is a coastal town famous for its dramatic walls surrounding the city, its medieval feel, lively night scene, and of course more recently, Game of Thrones. The city has an inviting feel to it. Whether it’s your first time exploring Dubrovnik or your tenth time, the city hosts an array of tourist attractions and things to do, covering culture, history, art, literature, music, food and wine tours, and many more.
With the Adriatic Sea hugging the city coastline, there are lots of things to do on the water even if you have just a day in Dubrovnik. These include classic boat tours from Dubrovnik and day excisions out on the ocean to the nearby secluded islands of Sipan and Elaphati. On top of that, the city is also a great base to enjoy more active and lively water-sports activities from. Enjoy speed boat trips, swimming in the warm waters or a sea kayak tour to undiscovered caves and secluded Dubrovnik beaches.
For those interested in food and wine, Dubrovnik is a city that offers a blend of local delicacies and Michelin-starred restaurants. Dubrovnik (in fact, most of Croatia) has exquisite fish and seafood on offer – often freshly caught that very morning from the local fisherman. For an authentic taste of Dubrovnik head to Gunduliceva Poljana Market in the Old Town. It’s a great place to pick up a beach picnic or to find gifts to take home (local dried fruit, candied nuts, fresh soaps, and local olive oil). Craft beer is also worth tasting and, with reasonable prices and lively bars, it will soon become a night to remember. There are delicious wines grown in the Dubrovnik region, including Plavac Mali and Pošip. Our travel experts can help you organize one of the great attractions of Dubrovnik, wine tours and wine tasting.
