Stand in front of Dubrovnik City Walls, and see why this city bears the title "Pearl of the Adriatic." A World Heritage Site since 1979, the city walls were constructed mainly during the 12th through the 17th centuries. The walls run uninterrupted for 1,940 m (6,365 ft), encircling the city, and you can access them via three different entrances. Walk over the ancient walls that were never breached by a hostile army during medieval times. Explore the complex system of bastions, casemates, towers, and detached forts. Put Dubrovnik City Walls and other Dubrovnik attractions into our Dubrovnik trip itinerary website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • One of the main attractions of this amazing town, great views all around and a must do while you visited the town, won’t be disappointed.  more »
  • Walking on the ancient city walls of the old city is an amazing experience. Add scenes from Game of Thrones was icing in the cake. There are many steps and uneven surfaces.  more »
  • We went to the walls on the morning of a sunny day, it is a highly recommended activity, with a low difficulty, with fabulous view, but I think the value of the entrance is high, and of course very crowded.

  • Very clean and tidy hostel. A little out of the way, which is nice for actually getting a bit of shut eye. AC in the room, which was very nice at night. Didn't have a chance to stay for breakfast but it looked like a nice spread.
  • Pros: perfect location, amazing shower pressure, very quite and strict. Cons: staff, whilst helpful, are incredibly rude with little flexibility. Examples: had to be convinced into giving us a second map (we lost the first one), accused us of blocking the toilet soon after arriving. When we explained it wasn’t us, we were nonetheless told twice if it had been us, “you have to clean it up” whilst acknowledging “we have bad plumbing”. Wifi doesn’t work at all on the third floor. Bring backpacks not luggage to get up all the stairs and stones.
  • Best hostel ! The staff is really nice and super helpful. The rooms are big and there's planty of space for your luggage. Everything is super clean! It is also a really quiet and secure hostel. We had the best time ever. I really recommend this place. **You can also ear the sea from the bedroom :)
  • The worst hostel I've ever been in. At the top of the old city (not very easy to reach for disable people), near the sea but you can not see it. Very very expansive for a bed, a white towel and cornflakes for your breakfast (no juice no bread...). They are only interested in your money. What a shame for an hostel !
  • Beautiful location, but very loud at night. Only wood shutters over windows that don't block out light or sound on a jam packed alley. It has AC!
