A Photographic Visit to Dubrovnik

The southernmost point on our Balkan road trip was Dubrovnik, Croatia. A centuries-old city located on a narrow strip of land in the very south of Croatia, Dubrovnik was once an independent republic, a nation that rivalled Venice in sheer power and prosperity.

It is this amazing history that makes Dubrovnik an incredibly visit-worthy city today. I seriously cannot exaggerate the immense beauty of the city—it is one of those cities that truly lives up to the hype that surrounds it.

I would recommend spending at least three days in the city. That is sufficient time to explore the UNESCO world heritage listed Old City and its many highlights, laze around on the beach and go for a day trip to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina or the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro—two places that are also recognized as world heritage by UNESCO.

When visiting Dubrovnik, it is impossible not to constantly take photos. There is beauty everywhere, at every street corner and on each square, from the pedestrianized cobbled streets and the old churches to the beaches and boat-dotted harbor.

You can find plenty of information about Dubrovnik online, so I won’t bother you with sharing the same information here. This post is dedicated to showing you guys what Dubrovnik looks like, its extraordinary beauty hopefully awaking the urge to visit in some of you. If that happens, this post has been successful!

Join me for a photographic visit to Dubrovnik, nicknamed the “Pearl of the Adriatic” for very solid reasons, as you will see.
