    Dubrovnik and Croatia generally are high on my list of places to visit, especially when you tease us with photos and stories such as this! I am a huge GOT fan and would love to see where some of it is filmed! And stop showing me all the lovely yummy food and drink, you keep making me hungry lol! There is so much to see and do in Dubrovnik and this post really shows me that! I need to get myself there, thanks for sharing 🙂

      Thanks Angie. It’s such a great town and there is so much to do. It’s very walkable too (if you don’t mind the stairs) and it’s a great base for exploring the region! Just prepare to share it a bit!

    Another great post as usual, and this one is a brilliant guide Alexei and exactly what I’ve been looking for! We’ve been thinking about going to Dubrovnik for a while now, but we’d like to spend time in B&H .. I’d been wondering if you could do a day trip to Mostar, if we just went to Dubrovnik, so thanks for that info really useful. Do you get to have much time in Mostar on a day trip?

      You get about 3 hours in Mostar on most of the tours. Its about a 2.5 hour drive but you will probably get stops on the way. I’ve done Mostar as part of a bigger Eastern Europe trip. Its definitely worth a visit as is Montenegro!

    David, the Game of Thrones stuff really was the icing on the cake. I did the tour with a friend who has never seen an episode so it was amusing! Thanks for reading!

    Dubrovnik is such a beautiful and charming place with a rustic charm. Time seems to stand still here as you walk around the old town. Would happily spend days and weeks here.

      Vijay, you’re right. Despite the tourists, it doesn’t somehow feel as touristy as other towns. Just a wonderful place!

    The entire eastern Adriatic coast keeps climbing up our wish list, with Croatia in the lead! You’ve managed to make us want to go even more – and the Game of Thrones Tour just sort of put it over the top. 😉 Awesome post…sure wish we could just pack up and go. Like, now!

    I didn’t know that Dubrovnik is so well preserved and that the medieval walls can be walked over a 1,940 metre long loop! That’s awesome! What a sight and so close to the sea shore. There are not many towns who can offer these views.

    Dubrovnik looks like a very interesting city to visit. I would love to go up in the cable car to the top of Srd Hill, looks like some amazing views. I would also enjoy walking around the old town as I like to see old buildings.

    I’ve been to Dubrovnik a few years ago and loved it. The Old Town and its walls are so beautiful and the views from Srd Hill are stunning. I also enjoyed Lokrum island with its peacocks, seaside cliffs and botanical garden! I haven’t done the Game of Thrones tour but got super excited when I saw some of the locations. Btw the food at Poco Loco looks delicious – I think I have to come back 🙂

    Ahhhhhh, we cannot wait to go back. I was very envious of your kayaking trip, I wished we had done it when we were there. Next time we will not miss it, your trip looked beautiful 🙂

    I’m visiting Dubrovnik, Croatia this fall so it’s perfect you have written the important things to do here. I guess Srd Hill for sunset is a must! As is walking the walls and the old city. I’m not sure how long I’ll be there but I may give myself an extra day so I can make the trip out to the UNESCO protected Island of Lokrum. Hopefully I’m lucky with the weather as you were, you got some Instagram worthy snaps!

      Thank you! Dubrovnik is pretty compact so you can manage a lot of the things on this list in a day or two – Lokrum Island is so close and easy to get to!

    I had no idea that Game of Thrones has scenes shot in Croatia, that’s pretty awesome! But even better is that you can visit multiple other countries on day trips! That’s a great way to check off lots of countries off the bucket list. Love that there is something different to do for people with different interests. Great post!

      Yeah there are a few locations that they used in Croatia and having a guide who worked on every episode shot there was pretty awesome too! As you say, there is plenty to see and do in Dubrovnik!

    Great tips Lexx. I’ve visited Croatia briefly but not made it to Dubrovnik. Looks like a nice place to wander around and explore. Might have to put it on the list for my next Euro trip.

    Thanks for such a great post. Croatia looks an amazing country and one that doesn’t seem to be talked about as a really popular place to visit. It has been on my bucket list for some time as it looks a beautiful country. Great photos makes me want to go even more.
