Frequently asked questions about Dubrovnik

What top attractions are a must-see in Dubrovnik?

Planning Your Visit

  • How many days to spend in Dubrovnik?

    You can see the major attractions within the walled city in two full days, but consider Dubrovnik as a base to explore the surrounding area on some day-trips. This option also allows you to enjoy spending more time in the old town in the evening.

  • Getting around

    You'll only need your own two feet when visiting the attractions in the old town. At first it may seem like a complex maze to navigate, but it's fun to explore. You'll find one side of the Stradun is flat, while the other side is steep in parts. Buses 1A, 1B and 1C run regularly between the old town and the main bus station.

  • Where to stay in Dubrovnik

    Staying within the old town is an ideal place to be, but suggested areas outside the city walls include Lapad and Ploce, the later being a bit hilly with nice views over historical Dubrovnik.

Extremely nice, motivated guide who worked on the production himself and passed on great information. We recommend! You see Dubrovnik from a different perspective.

This was an amazing day trip. Perast is stunning and we loved the boat ride to Kotor. Definitely recommend if you have a little extra time in Croatia.
