Dubrovnik Travel Guide

About

It feels super good to be back after my holidays in Croatia! I jetted away to the beautiful area of Croatia called Dubrovnik, a world UNESCO site. Staying in the old town was incredible, the beautiful architecture is not only enchanting but is super well maintained even after all these years.

 Historically, Dubrovnik is a seaport town that was based on maritime trade. The old town is actually a lot smaller then you think, it takes around a day to two days to get yourself around the main sights of the old town. Since I stayed for 5 days there was plenty of scope to go around a explore what lies outside of the walls. I would highly recommend spending the daytime on the beach and going to the sights when the town is less busy. Usually, I woke up early to visit a museum and then go to the beach and continue sightseeing in the evening when it was cooler. 

As a final note, I loved the entire trip. Dubrovnik is a city that has made an impression on me and has inspired me to dream big and continue to savour ever moment in life.

So here is my travel guide:

AM

Coffee at Cognito

Stajeva 1, Ulica od pustijerne 5 20000 Dubrovnik

Hours: 8 am until 8 pm

A speciality coffee shop with locally roasted coffee including cold brew and espresso. A must visit for all coffee lovers.

Walk in the city walls

Inner Pile Gate and St Lucas Fortress

Hours: 8 am until 8 pm

A walk around historic walls that encompass the city to get the most incredible views. Best times to go are early in the morning and be prepared to walk up lots of steps.

LUNCH

Soul Café

Uska Ulica 5 20000 Dubrovnik

Hours: 8 am until 2 am

A little cute café, bar and restaurant nestled in one of the quite streets of the old town. This café is a must visit for healthy foodies and cocktail lovers too! Make sure to order their smoothie bowls.

St Jakov Beach

Ul. Vlaha Bukovca 14, 20000, Croatia

Hours: All Day

This stunning beach is about a 30 minute walk from the old town and gives you some of the most breath taking views of the city. It is by far the better of the beaches since the water is super clean and really lovely to swim in. A must visit.

PM

Dinner at Nishta

Prijeko bb 20000 Dubrovnik

Hours: 11:30 am until 10 pm

Being the only vegan restaurant in Dubrovnik, Nishta was a must visit for me. These beautiful little restaurant is located on the west side of the old town. It is situated on a street where all the best restaurants are. The menu was amazing with raw options too. Everyday they have a different menu, bringing something exciting and new to vegan food. A must visit for healthy food lovers.

Drinks at The Bar by Azur

Kuniceva ulica 5 20000 Dubrovnik

Hours: 8 am until 2 am

This modern cocktail bar sits on one of the side streets near Nishta, so it was our stop over after our meal. It is perfectly situated so that you can sit outside and become a part of the street atmosphere. As well as a variety of cocktails they also offer Croatian wine, I would high recommend trying a Croatian red wine, it is amazing!
