“Those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik,” said George Bernard Shaw of Croatia’s stunning UNESCO World Heritage site. Historically a maritime trade port, its location on the Adriatic Sea has seen it invaded by everyone from the Slavs in the 7th Century to the Serbs in the 1990s, but with its medieval fortresses, endless coastline and vibrant atmosphere it is now firmly established as a true Mediterranean dream destination. Eagle eyed fans will recognise many of the city’s landmarks as filming locations from the popular TV series Game Of Thrones. And with a Flybe flight to Dubrovnik you can experience this true wonder for yourself in no time.
Eating out in Dubrovnik is a real experience. Restaurants such as Lucin Kantun serve hearty Croatian fare. Chefs are creative, and you can expect bold flavours to complement the delicious local wines. At sun down you can take a walk along the 12th century walls that run for 2km around the Old City before heading to one of the cosy bars along Stradun to sample the local aperitifs and meet the friendly locals. There is a lively nightclub scene, and you can dance until dawn – and celeb spot – at the Eastwest Beach Club Banje with its views over the Old Town.
Many of Dubrovnik’s shops and stores are geared towards the tourist trade, but the streets north and south of Stradun are home to some real gems. Dubrovnik is renowned for its open-air markets like those in Gundulic Square and Gruž, with fresh seafood available directly off the boats. There are some smaller shopping centres in the business area of Gruž near the main bus terminal, or for high fashion head to Maria Store on Sv Dominika and browse the latest trends.
Simply strolling around is the best way to experience the quaint little streets and impressive architecture that Dubrovnik has in droves, such as the Renaissance era Sponza Palace and the Gothic Rector’s Palace. If you’re visiting Dubrovnik in the summer, don’t miss some of the open-air evening theatre performances that are dotted around the city. For a truly unique ride, take one of the orange cable cars high up over the Old Town to the top of Mount Srđ, and look down over the historic city in style. Or soak up the sun on Banje Beach, a great place for kids with water sports and inflatables to keep them occupied. Most beaches are pebble rather than sand, so take some sturdy shoes!
