Oh those city walls in Dubrovnik

The beautiful city walls of Dubrovnik should be at the top of your bucket list when visiting. Inside the old city you will find narrow streets full of restaurants, a church,  stores and of course… many, many, many steps so make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes. You can enter the city walls from the old Harbor or Pile Gate but either entrance will give you access to spectacular city views.

Not only will you feel like if you are in an episode of Game of Thrones but walking thru the city walls will give you the best views of the vast blue water surrounding the city.  I spent most of my money there eating back ice cream – Cokolada Extra Ice Cream.

Dubrovnik is a city full of history and one of my favorite experiences was taking the cable cars to the top of the mountain and visit the Museum of Croatian War of Independence. The building itself is a fort and you can climb the stairs to the top and see the city from a different angle. Afterwards you can even rent an ATV and go on a safari trip up there as well.

There are so many things to do and places to visit. You can take a ferry to Lokrum Island from the old city port and bathe in the nude beach (not my cup of tea but I heard its beautiful) or hike up to the fort.  You can also island hop the Elafiti islands and enjoy the beaches and the hiking trails.
