Rising dramatically from the Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik’s popularity skyrocketed recently thanks to its appearance in Game of Thrones, but this walled city has always been a jewel in Europe’s crown. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Dubrovnik allows the historical imagination to go crazy, with solid stone fortresses and narrow cobbled streets ripe for exploration. Read on for the best places to take photos in this stunning seaside destination.
The highlight of Dubrovnik’s medieval Old Town are the wonderfully well-preserved city walls. Pay the fee to walk the walls (because you should if you’re in Dubrovnik), but go early and take in the stunning medieval architecture and the sparkling sea views.
Now that you’ve walked Dubrovnik’s famous walls, head to Old Port and take in just how imposing they really are. This peaceful spot is a great place to linger over beautiful sea views.
