Dubrovnik is one of the world’s most stunning destinations, both in terms of its cultural heritage and as a holiday destination. The city has often been referred to as the “Pearl of the Adriatic” and was inducted into the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979 as a city of rich culture and history. The Old Town of Dubrovnik is surrounded by 1,970 meters of city walls—over the centuries they served to protect the city from various threats and today are the city’s greatest attraction. The Pile Gate and the Ploče Gate are connected by the main street, Stradun, and form the entry and exit points to the city walls and the old city itself as well as its museums and theatre scene. Besides its wealth and diversity of history and heritage, Dubrovnik is also a city of top culinary delights, stunning natural surroundings, and cordial inhabitants, so set some time aside, explore the possibilities the city has to offer and feel the spirit of this ancient city.

Things to do in Dubrovnik

MUST SEE ATTRACTIONS

Dubrovnik City Walls & Fortresses

Zadar’s incredible Sea Organ, designed by local architect Nikola Bašić, is unique. Set within the perforated stone stairs that descend into the sea is a system of pipes and whistles that exudes wistful sighs when the movement of the sea pushes air through it. The effect is hypnotic, the mellifluous tones increasing in volume when a boat or ferry passes by. You can swim from the steps off the promenade while listening to the sounds. This is a superb spot to peacefully watch the sun go down to the mesmerising tones of Zadar’s most popular attraction.

Old Town – Streets of Stadun

Another wacky and wonderful creation by Nikola Bašić (along with the nearby Sea Organ), this 22m-wide circle set into the pavement is filled with 300 multilayered glass plates that collect the sun’s energy during the day. Together with the wave energy that makes the Sea Organ’ssound, it produces a trippy light show from sunset to sunrise that’s meant to simulate the solar system. It also collects enough energy to power the entire harbour-front lighting system. The place is packed with tourists, excited children and locals every night, especially at sunset, when the gorgeous sea views and the illuminated pavement make for a spectacular sight.

Restaurant Porat

Located in vibrant Gruž Harbour, Porat is “strategically” in the immediate vicinity of the farmer’s market and the fish market. For those who prefer to dine late at night, join the Chef at around 11 p.m. and be the first one to visit the large fishing boats as they dock in front of the restaurant. Very often the fresh catch (fish, crabs) goes directly into the creative kitchen and by midnight it is cooked and served to the guests.
