Plan your journey around Dubrovnik
Enclosed by massive stone walls completed in the 16th century, Dubrovnik’s Old Town is filled with everything from baroque to Renaissance architecture – it’s beyond charming.
Walk the pedestrian Stradun (or Placa) lined with shops, restaurants and cafes. Visit the baroque Church of Saint Blaise or the Renaissance Sponza Palace. There’s also the stunning Dubrovnik Cathedral, as well as the gothic Rector’s Palace, which has a museum housed inside. Prepare to be dazzled by the city’s marbled streets and the sparkling Adriatic Sea just beyond. You can even walk along the top of the city walls, which should definitely top your itinerary.
For a different perspective, take the cable car to the top of Mount Srđ, where you’ll be greeted with 360-degree views of the town below and the sea beyond. If you feel like soaking up the Mediterranean, you can rent a kayak and paddle just beyond the city walls … or find a place to dive in and have a swim.
Being by the sea, there are a number of fantastic beaches near the city too. Banje beach is the closet, located just beyond the city gates.
Road trips from Dubrovnik
From Dubrovnik, you have plenty of options for exploring – both within Croatia and in neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Mostar Nestled in the south of Eastern Europe, you’ll have the opportunity to do a little country hopping from Dubrovnik. Take the M6 for two hours and you’ll arrive in Mostar, a fascinating city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The famous Old Bridge over the Neretva river is Mostar’s most iconic attraction, although the original was destroyed during the Yugoslavian War. Walk the cobbled streets of the Old Town, shopping for souvenirs and stopping for cevapi – Bosnia’s traditional dish.
Medjugorje Medjugorje is considered one of Europe’s holiest and most peaceful destinations, also located in Bosnia and Herzegovina. To get here from Dubrovnik, take the M6 and cruise down it for two hours. Explore the city and head to Apparition Hill, where it’s believed the Virgin Mary once appeared. If you can, attend a service at the beautiful Church of St James.
Cavtat Cavtat is one of Croatia’s most popular little holiday towns, located just under half an hour from Dubrovnik on the D8. This seaside village is a pleasant escape from crowded Dubrovnik and its harbour is filled with cafes and restaurants. Visit the Racic Mausoleum, or simply hang out on one of the nearby beaches all day.
Croatia is sure to charm you. Just get in your Avis rental and drive.
