Places to visit and other tourist attractions in Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is the southernmost city in Croatia, and is a storied place filled with history. It is a walled city, a seaport, which dates back to the 13th century. It is one of the most visited destinations in Croatia, and indeed one of the most visited places on the Adriatic coast. Until 1909, the city was called Ragusa. This is a great example of a true medieval city. 

Visitors to Dubrovnik will be happy to know that there is plenty to see and do in this historic city, from checking out the famous city walls to lounging on the beach and enjoying water-based activities.

The old city walls are the best known holiday attraction in Dubrovnik,
which provide many vantage points around the city.

No one can help but be impressed at the sight of the Dubrovnik City Walls that surround the most ancient part of the city, that which was built in the 13th century. Tourists will want to make sure they see the large Minceta Tower and the Bokar Tower, which were designed to help guard the wall and the port.

The Old City, the portion of Dubrovnik that dates back to medieval times, is beautiful. It is a place where visitors can truly feel transported to another time and place. The architecture is incredible and something that no visitor should miss. Be sure to check out the Stradun, the main road in the Old City. You can also find several great restaurants here, as you are sure to work up an appetite while exploring the Dubrovnik city.

The Rector's Palace is one of the most striking old buildings in the city,
that used to be the seat of the Rector of Dubrovnik Republic.

One of the most popular beaches in the area is Sveti Jakov, which has a great view of the Old City. This is a place for the locals and tourists congregate and relax in the cool waters. Another popular beach is on the Island of Lopud, which is quite easy to reach. You will also find a small restaurant that is quite popular.

This was where the government of the city ruled (back when it was known as Ragusa). It is a gorgeous building with a lot of historical significance, and when you buy a ticket for a self-guided tour, you also get admission to the city museum. In the museum you can see some interesting artifacts from Dubrovnik’s past.

The great walled city of Dubrovnik has so much to offer visitors in terms of relaxation and culture that visitors will never find themselves at a loss for things to do. Simply walking around the city and taking in all of the incredible buildings will occupy most tourists for days!
