Dubrovnik in 20 Photos

The southernmost point on our Mediterranean road trip was Dubrovnik, Croatia. This ancient city lies in the very south of Croatia on a narrow strip of land flanking the aquamarine Adriatic Sea.

Dubrovnik is one of only a few cities that I’ve visited so far that truly lived up to the hype—Sydney, New York City and Venice are the others.

After immersing ourselves in the Istrian landscapes, swimming in Krka National Park and being pleasantly surprised by Šibenik, a six-hour drive along the rugged and dry Dalmatian coast brought us to Dubrovnik.

Nicknamed “The Pearl of the Adriatic” and protected as  World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this is truly one of the world’s most spectacular cities. The history of the place is overwhelming, its surrounding waters as clear as they can be, its food exquisite and its attractions simply amazing. I won’t go into too much detail in this post, though—there will be a super-extensive guide to visiting Dubrovnik later on. All I want to say now can be said with photos.

I haven’t done a photo essay in a long while and Dubrovnik is the perfect destination with which to continue the “city series” that I started almost a year ago.

So for now, to take a break from the textual posts that I’ve been shooting your way in the past week, here is a post that focuses on nothing else but travel photos of Dubrovnik.

Our visit to this overwhelming UNESCO World Heritage Listed city was made possible by the super-helpful and knowledgeable folks from the Dubrovnik Tourist Board and the Croatian National Tourist Board. Our accommodation was provided by Camping Solitudo. As always, all opinions are my own.
