Finding the real Dubrovnik


We’ve all heard about the touristic city ‘Dubrovnik’. While being in Montenegro (you can read everything about it here) we decided to cross the border to Croatia. Dubrovnik is part of the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

Because it’s such a touristic place we knew it was going to be really expensive to stay there or even eat there. So we decided to stay in a little city close by. We stayed at hotel cavtat in Cavtat city. It’s about 18 km from Dubrovnik and you can easily take a boat or go with your car. Note: it’s hard to find any parking space in Dubrovnik.

All we did in Dubrovnik was walk around the city and try to see as many streets as we could in one day. You have to pay to walk on the old city walls. There was a line waiting (and I don’t like to wait) so we skipped that. Instead we walked next to the walls and found some amazing bars next to the sea.

There is also a cable-way to the top of a mountain where you can get a splendid view over the city. It costs around 30 euros for one person so we took the car to this point. I think it’s even more fun to take your car because you’ll feel like you’re in a race game. Here you can also find the museum of war (Serbia – Croatia).

We are not a huge fan of super touristic places, but I’m happy I did see a little bit of Croatia. Croatia, we will be back!

P.S. Where can we find the ‘real’ Croatia?

    I’d really love to visit Croatia one day. It looks fantastic. I’m the same with super touristy things, but it’s kind of hard to avoid in Europe. That’s one reason why I like travelling to Europe in winter. 🙂

      It’s the only city I’ve seen in Croatia. I’m looking forward on exploring the country some more. Maybe next year or this year in winter. I absolutely love going somewhere when it’s not high season. So if I have the change on going somewhere when it’s winter/fall I’m so happy!
      Thank you for the comment Chalsie!
