Old City of Dubrovnik
The 'Pearl of the Adriatic', situated on the Dalmatian coast, became an important Mediterranean sea power from the 13th century onwards. Although severely damaged by an earthquake in 1667, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. Damaged again in the 1990s by armed conflict, it is now the focus of a major restoration programme co-ordinated by UNESCO.
Walk the wall of the city, go for a swim at the beach before or after visiting the shops. The people were friendly, prices were very reasonable. I went in July and it was very hot! But with a little more sun screen...I would do this again in a heart beat. Scenery was spectacular!
The old city in Dubrovnik is an absolutely stunning place to visit. Driving to it you first see the walls of the old city and you can't help but to be impressed. Depending on what gate you go into, you are either faced with the length of the main street/shops area, or through the other, a steep, multiple set of steps that takes you down to the main street. If you are staying in the old city, the thought of bringing your bags down these multiples of steps is enough to make you cry! In May it is not quiet the high season and already it was the busiest place we had been to. Food was great, although many places have the same menu. They have full day boat cruises out of the harbour that are really nice. Lots of churches and museums to see. Walk around the walls is a must, but wear sturdy shoes. Also, you can really sunburn up there as you are exposed to the sun and winds. Up on the walls is the only place you can truly appreciate the beauty of the city and it's terra cotta roofs. Hotel Stari Grad has a roof top terrace with million dollar views. No food service up there, but a take out pizza will do the job. A shoppers paradise - especially for jewellery. A wonderful city to visit and experience, but parking is a nightmare if you have a car. You have to park very far away if you don't want to pay. Overnight parking is expensive - $50.00 CDN a day. Even though people live in this city, we found it more touristy than the old city of Split. This place will only get busier as more people disover it.
