Dibrovnik

Dubrovnik is a pearl of the Adriatic Sea. This Croatian city is famous for crystal clear azure coast and the well-saved old town hidden by the huge stone walls. It became even more famous when the streets of it were filmed for popular series “Game of Thrones”.

Dubrovnik situated in the heart of the Adriatic area is a good place for meeting Mediterranean culture and trying some local cuisine. It’s also a perfect point to travel around south Dalmatia and neighbouring Herzegovina.

Dubrovnik, Jesuit Stairs

Dubrovnik, Jesuit Stairs

The Jesuit Stairs is one of the most significant places in the centre of the old Dubrovnik. These big stone steps lead right up to the old baroque Church of Saint Ignatius.

 But Jesuit Stairs became popular not because of its look and big history, but because of the significant appearance in Game of Thrones series. If you are a fan of it you may remember the scene when Queen Cersei was forced to make Walk of Shame. Her way through King’s Landings started here.


Got there by:

Dubrovnik, Stradun

Stradun is the biggest and the widest street of the old town. It used to be strait at the beginning of Dubrovnik history but years after two independent settlements what had been situated on the opposite side of the strait buried it and constructed the stone road - Stradun.

Dubrovnik, the Walls

Dubrovnik, the Walls

The huge stone walls are the symbol of Dubrovnik and the main attraction of it. They had been kept independence of city-state Dubrovnik for centuries and it was never been crumbled down. So rightfully these walls one of the most well-saved medieval town walls in the whole of Europe.  

Before coming to the city I already knew I wanted to climb up on it to see outstanding views of red rooftops what open from it.


Got there by:

Dubrovnik, Lovrijenac

Dubrovnik, Lovrijenac

Massive Lovrijenac fortress is located out of the town on a rock above the sea harbour. By the history of City-State Dubrovnik, it was constructed for a few months by citizens when they had found that the rock might be occupied by Venetians. 

That’s how bad freedom-loving people of Dubrovnik didn’t want Venetians to control their city.

Beach Šulić

Beach Šulić

From the top of Lovrijenac, I found one more interesting place what looked promising - Beach Šulić. 

The way down there was quite tangled and not easy to find but it was worth a visit. The beach is situated between two steep cliffs and the azure water of it is crystal clear and pleasant for swimming.

Lokrum

Lokrum

After a few days of exploring the old town of Dubrovnik, I realized it’d be a good idea to get away from medieval stone jungles and have some rest in some... nature place.

Island Lokrum was a good choice for that. 30 minutes by ferry and I was in a small paradise with green trees, flowers and good beaches.


Got there by:

Ston

Ston

When I was sure what I’d seen in Dubrovnik everything that I wanted I took a bus and got to the next interesting point of the South Dalmatia.

Ston is a small town in the narrowest part of Pelješac peninsula. It’s nice and calm and it has huge medieval walls and some old streets what’s worth to visit. But if you like to make creative photos there is some special place you may find - salt mines. It’s one of the oldest in the whole of Europe!


Got there by:

Orebić

Croatia is definitely blessed by God with the magnificent sunny coastline. It’s more than 4000 kilometres of it. 

Orebić is not a super famous destination in Croatia but it’s also worth a visit. The town is situated on the edge of Pelješac peninsula what is famous for nice beaches, tasty food and delicious local wine.


Got there by:

Korčula

Korčula

If you are exploring South Dalmatia, don’t miss Korčula. It’s one of the biggest islands of Croatia and the town with the same name Korčula is one of the nicest. 

I came to Korčula at the end of June when the sea was warm enough but it wasn’t crowded so I could go to the beach and after I had a chance to explore the old Venetian streets of the town without plenty of tourists. Love it! Love Dalmatia!
