Gradske Zidine, Dubrovnik
(4.8/5 based on 14,000+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit Gradske Zidine on your trip to Dubrovnik, use our Dubrovnik tour planner.

  • Don't serve sounding words to describe this experience. Should be lived. Wonderful views, the wind, the waves crashing on the walls and on the rocks. Dubrovnik is imaginative.

  • The City walls are a wonderful way to see the Old Town, as they completely surround it. The views are spectacular. It is a bit of a hike, but I am 65 years old and it wasn't a problem for me at all. 
  • We arrived early before it got to hot and walked right around the walls. What an amazing view. A very interesting walk that everyone should experience.

  • The city walls are quite impressive and you have amazing views on the city and its surroundings. The length of the roundtrip is around 2km (6400ft) and you should keep in mind that there is no shade on the wall. The regular admission fee (120HRK) is not that cheap (students may get a discount to 30HRK) but everything is kept in good shape and the outlook is worth the price.
  • Great walk around the Dubrovnik old town. It will take you at least one hour and include a lot of stairs. If the weather is warm, it will be even hotter on the walls. Some restaurants - or at least bars and kiosks - are available around the walls but bringing some own water is recommended.
  • Simply Great, best thing you can do when you start exploring the city is walking the full 360 circle. A little expansive though
  • Really worth it! A little bit expensive but it's one of the main attractions in the city. Some advice: walk through it while listening to the Game of Thrones soundtrack and try to ignore the tourists.
  • Beautiful old town but very crowded in the afternoon. Great atmosphere at night.
