Neighborhood Tourist Spot
At Old Town, learn how the "Pearl of the Adriatic" developed as a major Mediterranean power after the 13th century. Dubrovnik, which holds a significant place in the history of city planning, joined the list of World Heritage Sites in 1979. Climb the preserved white-stone defensive walls, with mighty forts and towers. Take in a panoramic view of the crystal clear sea and the countryside. As you wander, you'll pass old residential houses with red roof tops as well as Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque palaces, churches, and fountains. Consider a guided custom tour, tailored to your liking. Put Old Town on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Dubrovnik vacation builder.

  • Very nice typical small town with its ramparts and achitecture. A pretty bloody history during the events that took place in this country, with a Museum is dedicated. I have loved this place, too bad it's a tourist trap. Everything is paid...

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.
