Photo of the Week: Dubrovnik

Each Saturday from now on, I’ll be sharing a photo with you from my travels around the world. 

This week, the photo comes from Dubrovnik, Croatia.

This walled city in the south of Croatia is often referred to as “the Pearl of a Adriatic” — and it’s not difficult to understand why. Having repelled almost nearly every invasion thanks to its high walls, Dubrovnik today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as a major tourist destination. The top activity here is (not surprisingly) walking the walls around the city so you can get views like this one.

    ah, so pretty! only 3 weeks and I’ll be there as well :)

    • DangerousBiz says:

      Ooo, exciting! Definitely pay to walk the walls – it is SO worth it!

      • kami says:

        sadly I won’t have that much time there, only half a day or so, but I really wanna walk the walls, it seems like the highlight of Dubrovnik! What else would you recommend for few hours there?

        • DangerousBiz says:

          Definitely walk the walls first so you make sure you have enough time. Then maybe just wander around near the main square and get some food! That’s what I did when I was only there for half a day.

          • kami says:

            great, thanks! I was thinking about going to the hill above the city to admire the view but I’m not sure I’ll have enough time for that… oh well, that will be the reason to come back to Dubrovnik some other time

  • Lizzie says:

    Ah, I love Dubrovnik. Walking the walls around the city was one of my top highlights from my Europe trip last year – beautiful city!

    • DangerousBiz says:

      Walking the walls was definitely a highlight for me, too. And, since I did it on such a hot day, it wasn’t even all that crowded!

  • H-Bomb says:

    Another top-notch photo of the week! What a view! And it’s always a nice bonus when a cityscape is filled with greenery like this one! Dubrovnik is definitely on my radar now . . .

    • DangerousBiz says:

      What a view indeed. I can totally understand why Dubrovnik is one of the most popular destinations in Croatia – and on the Adriatic coast, for that matter! It’s breathtaking.

  • Fred says:

    Beautiful pic. I spent a few days in Croatia but didn’t make it to Dubrovnik. Next time!

    • DangerousBiz says:

      Definitely try to go next time! Just perhaps not in the height of summer… haha, it was VERY hot and very crowded.

  • Hogga says:

    Great shot – love the different colours!

  • Sophie says:

    Such a beautiful photo, really captures the amazing colours!

    Only managed to get as far down as Split when we hit the Croatian coast, so disappointed I didn’t have a chance to get to Dubrovnik. I can’t believe it looks like this so soon after a war in which half of it was damaged.

    • DangerousBiz says:

      Yeah, Dubrovnik has bounced back from the war astoundingly well. You should definitely try to check it out sometime. I enjoyed Split, too (despite the crowds), but for sheer beauty, no city in Croatia beats Dubrovnik!

  • I LOVE Dubrovnik. As a matter of fact, I was just looking back on the photos from my trip there back in 2008. What a beautiful little city.

  • Simon says:

    I swear I took pretty much the exact same photo, no more than a couple of feet from where you must have taken this one! I love Dubrovnik; its just an interesting, beautiful city.
