A DAY IN DUBROVNIK
To experience an “easy going” day in Dubrovnik, we have created an itinerary, which might help you to get around. So, let us begin...
Kick off your day by having a delicious breakfast at Dubravka restaurant, which is located at Pile gate. Enjoy the sound of sea beneath you, and the magnificent view of the City Walls and fort Lovrijenac in front of you. Simply relax while you are enjoying your morning coffee. When you finish with your breakfast we would recommend you to take a tour around our most known attraction. You are probably guessing which one are we talking about and yes you are 100% right! We are talking about the City Walls.
Besides being Dubrovnik’s biggest attraction, the City Walls simply cannot be missed out. Not only because of the spectacular views that offer, but more because of its historical significance and beauty.
By the way don`t forget to bring a bottle of water with you. You can get free icy cold water on Onofrio`s Fountain right opposite of the entrance to the City Walls. Onofrio`s Fountain was built in 1438 with a purpose to supply the Old Town with fresh water. Believe it or not, at that time the spring water supply was 12 kilometres far. After the devastating earthquake in 1667 and the homeland war in 1991, the fountain still remained as a place where everybody gathers. Moreover, during hot summer days you can notice how tourists refresh themselves with cold water along with our city pigeons.
Take a walk between narrow stone streets where you will find some local stores offering handmade souvenirs, like different kinds of craft art and jewellery. Our office as well offers all sorts of handmade souvenirs; therefore feel free to check it out. Our wide collection of handmade souvenirs includes: necklaces, bracelets and earrings made of corals, as well as ceramics, numismatics and natural cosmetics.
Majority of products we offer, are designed and made in Croatia.
Fun fact: Did you know that corals are invertebrate animals belonging to a large group of colourful animals called Cnidaria? They lack a brain but have a simple nervous system called a nerve net. (Neither did we ;))
Once you get tiered from walking around take a seat in one of city restaurants and just take a break for lunch. Whether you like meat, fish, fast food or something else, you will definitely find something for your taste as Dubrovnik has a variety of delicious dishes. Our favourite restaurants are Trattoria Carmen and restaurant Proto, but pick whatever you like.
If you are not tiered after lunch, you will still have time to visit Rectors Palace, which was a legal- administrative body during the Republic of Dubrovnik. Today, Rector Palace is gorgeous gothic- renaissance museum.
Finish your day by visiting the mount Srđ. There are several ways how you can visit mount Srđ. The first option is a cable car, which will take around 5 minutes. Second option is to take a local taxi, which would take around 20 minutes. Many taxi drivers offers a “Panorama Tour”, which basically means that on the way to the top of the hill you will have a chance to stop at some specific locations to absorb the beautiful view and to take a selfie along the way. At the top of the Mount Srđ there is a Restaurant Panorama. If you become thirsty or hungry we recommend you to grab a seat and get a glass of local wine or beer. If you decide to have a dinner there, make sure you make a reservation upfront. We can guarantee you that you will experience the most beautiful sunset ever and thus just sit down and enjoy the rest of the day.
We truly hope that with our recommendations we have helped you planning your one-day stay in our city.
We will be posting various tourist information, useful tips and interesting articles on a regular basis.
