Historic Walking Area Ruin
Stand in front of Gradske Zidine, 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.

  • We walked the city walls in the peak of summer, so we decided to leave it until as late in the day as possible. This meant it was cooler and we were treated to the incredible sunset views over the old...  more »
  • Exciting trip, especially if you read some history first. Cost some money but it was worth it. avoid stalls outside the wall that sells tickets, they say that unfortunately we do not have regular tickets (go alone) but they have guida tours common Game of Thrones and Star wars, which costs a lot! Regular tickets sold in rear port. Drag a day if it's cloudy or early tomorrow night.

Where to stay in Dubrovnik

One of Croatia's major tourist destinations, Dubrovnik remains one of the most expensive cities in the country, especially if you wish to stay in the old town at peak season. You can choose from upscale hotel rooms just east of the old town, but for budget-friendly beds you may have to go as far as the outskirts of town. Many locals rent small rooms in their private homes, so look for rental signs in windows or check with the city's tourist office.
