Dubrovnik

Let’s face it. If Dubrovnik could, it would officially twin itself with King’s Landing. Fully embracing the medieval fantasy romp, Game of Thrones, has only added to the city’s popularity. If we lost you at King’s Landing, do binge on the boxset before you arrive. It’s quite something to frolic in the Red Keep once you realise all that went on there. Filming locations aside, Dubrovnik’s been a real life showstopper since, well, the medieval days and beyond. Its cobbled streets and city walls are the stuff travel dreams are made of. That said, holidays to Dubrovnik do exist beyond its chunky walls.

Heritage, history and bustling streets write Dubrovnik’s headlines, but there’s an offshore laid-back archipelago nature lovers will have on their ‘must see’ list. Car and care-free life awaits those who ferry themselves across the Adriatic. Pine-strewn nature reserves, secret beaches and sea caves can be found on each island. Dubrovnik’s past hasn’t always been rosy – and it’s there to see in the architecture and abandoned buildings. They’ll light a fire in urban explorers hearts – and inspire you to peek beyond the Game of Thrones gloss to see the real Dubrovnik. A city that never quits.

Autumn on the Adriatic

Life on the Adriatic always benefits from the summer sun. Though hot, hot weather lures in the cruise crowd. Autumn’s your season for exploring the nature reserves on the nearby archipelago. Dubrovnik’s Old Town is quite the charmer, whatever the season. A festive, medieval Christmas vibe settles in during December. Spring’s worth a look – but expect the sea to be too chilly for a swim.

Discover the real Dubrovnik

Before you even look at a menu, you’ll want to get the wine sorted. Croatia’s best kept secret? Indigenous grape varietals that create some fairly unique wines. For optimum flavour combos, lunch at a winery is almost a must. Expect farm-to-table home cooking. In the city? Go for the local cuisine.

Rarely will you find yourself at a loss for a Game of Thrones themed activity in Dubrovnik. Even the jet ski safaris are in on the action. But that’s far from your only option. Adventures can be found in the Old Town, surrounding wine country and the offshore island hopping is just calling out to be fully explored.

Dubrovnik is awash with tours of almost every type, with plenty of locals on hand to show you around. Riffling through the vast choice is a time-zapping task – so we’ve whittled them down to the best of the best. Dubrovnik – and the nearby islands – are best explored with a few insider tips, the rest is up to you to discover.

More of Croatia

Yes, coastal delights and old, old cities are Croatia’s headline acts – but do take time to venture inland. Untamed national parks, vast lakes, steep peaks and lush forests are your spring, summer, autumn playgrounds. In winter, you’ll do well to get yourself to a Christmas market. Though, the alps and ski resorts will be vying for your attention. Whenever you visit, delve into the museums. Croatia’s got quite the backstory that’ll rival anything fiction can bring to its shores.
