Nestled on Croatia's Adriatic coast, Dubrovnik is one of the world's most photogenic walled cities. It is easy to see why people are flocking to Dubrovnik: beautiful weather, crystal clear waters, impressive white limestone buildings with terracotta roofs, and, of course, the Game of Thrones appeal. Thanks to HBO's television series, tourist numbers have increased exponentially, but the 'Pearl of the Adriatic' is a still a must-visit destination in Croatia. It is hard to imagine anyone failing to be impressed, especially as you walk along the ancient city walls between historical towers and buildings while taking in the breath-taking views of the calm blue waters and the magnificent backdrop of Mount Srd.
Transport to Dubrovnik
The historical center of Dubrovnik located within the city walls is completely pedestrianized and can only be explored on foot. The old town is relatively small in size but you will still be required to walk a fair amount, especially if you decide to explore the city walls which are 2km in length with a total of 1080 steps spread throughout.
The public transport system in Dubrovnik consists of a rapid and efficient network of buses that can be used to visit nearby towns including Cavtat and nearby beaches.
Travel to nearby islands is by ferry or catamaran which run frequently from Dubrovnik Gruz Port which is approximately a short 5-10 minute taxi ride east of the historical center.
