I am a travel enthusiast! I love to travel to learn about different cultures, histories, and beliefs. I believe that traveling is imperative to global peace, for without traveling one is subject to a myopic life. Traveling introduces you to places you would have otherwise never seen, cultures you would have never come to understand, and people you would have never met. Through this, perspective can change and travelers develop a deeper understanding of the world. When we as people come to understand each other, humanity succeeds. Whoever you are and wherever you live, get out and travel!

Things to do in Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik is a unique and striking city. It is one of the most visited Mediterranean cities for a reason. Beautiful mountains and the bright blue Adriatic Sea border its 16th century stoned-walled OldTown. Stepping into those fortified walls transports you into a medieval scene, reminding you of the value of the city throughout history. Dubrovnik is so special because the walls have been preserved so well. For all of those UNESCOWorldHeritageList followers, this city will mark another off of your list!
Place of interest in Dubrovnik
Srđ is a mountain right behind Dubrovnik. You can take a cable car up for about $18 round trip, or you can hike up the Mt. Srđ trail. At the top, you will be met with incredible views of the old town and the gorgeous coastline full of orange-roofed buildings, lush green mountains and the Mediterranean blue sea. If hiking on a hot day, proper hiking shoes and plenty of water are recommended. If your Dubrovnik adventure takes place in the warmer months in the year, check out one of Dubrovnik’s beaches along Croatia’s renowned coastline. You can virtually swim and sunbathe anywhere along Croatia’s coast, but the most centrally located and popular beach is Banje Beach. You can also take a trip out to Dubrovnik’s beautiful archipelago to go for a swim!
Things to do in Dubrovnik
Walk along the border wall. The surrounding wall of Dubrovnik is over a mile long and reaches a maximum height of 82 feet high. A walking path runs atop the entire wall, enabling you to get a striking view of both the city and the sea below. It is truly a surreal experience. You get the feeling of how things must have been in Dubrovnik in medieval times as you walk the path that many guards and soldiers once did in order to protect their city. My favorite thing to do is to get lost inside the walls. The walled city of Dubrovnik is full of small alleys that lead to hidden homes, cafes, and lookouts. As you stroll, count how many cats you see! Dubrovnik is a cat’s world and we are just living in it. You will see them sitting in flowerpots, windowsills, on stairs and walls, and even climbing the sea rocks on the outside of the walls.! There are endless alleys and paths to wander around, make sure you do so! This will give you an inside look at how people live in Dubrovnik and how people used to live as much hasn’t changed. It is a truly unique place.
Game Of Thrones
For all of you Game of Thrones fans, Dubrovnik is a city where a lot of the show was shot! There are a handful of tour options ranging from walking tours to boat tours. You will see Kings Landing, Lovrijenac Fortress, Trsteno Arboretum, and more! If you are a Game of Thrones follower, this would be an incredible experience! There are not many shows that have real places as their sets that you can wander around. You will literally be submersed into the Game of Thrones world.
Surrounding Areas of Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik borders Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Around the city you will see various day trip tours to these countries. If you have an empty day in your schedule, I highly recommend taking a day trip to one of these countries. They are sort of forgotten countries in Europe, brushed under the radar due to the more typical tourist attractions like Paris, Amsterdam, and London. It’d be nice to keep these countries less touristy, but they are such gorgeous countries with so much to offer! They are insanely beautiful with lush green forests and striking mountains. They are also relatively cheaper for USD and Euro to be in than Croatia. Flixbus offers a route from Dubrovnik to Samobor in Montenegro, which is just outside of the popular city of Podgorica. FlixBus offers a few routes from Dubrovnik to other cities in Croatia. There is a bus from Dubrovnik to Gospić that is about 4:20 hours. From Gospić you can travel to Plitvice Lakes National Park in around 45 minutes. Plitvice Lakes National Park is high up on my bucket list. I have heard amazing reviews. It is definitely worth the journey! Benkovac, Jastrebarkso, and Metković are the other Croatian cities that FlixBus offers routes to from Dubrovnik. Croatia being a country on the smaller side, you can get to all of these cities in less than 6 hours. The closest to Dubrovnik is Metković, then Benkovac, and followed by Jastrebarkso. All of these cities are beautiful with a medieval aesthetic and definitely worth visiting if you have an extra day in your schedule! If you’re looking to continue your European journey after Dubrovnik, FlixBus offers a route from Dubrovnik to Budapest! Hungary borders Croatia to the northeast, so this trip is only about 8 hours! From one fantastic city to the next, this would be a perfect option to continue your European adventure and continue to explore Eastern Europe.
