Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a splendid city overlooking the Adriatic Sea. Its 1940m long ramparts and its many historical monuments make it a real open-air museum that plunges us into another era, which did not escape the Game of Thrones film crew. The pluses? The islands with their turquoise waters that surround it and its delicious gastronomic addresses. We’ll take you there!
Where to stay?
In the heart of Dubrovnik’s old town, Villa 5 db welcomes guests in cosy and luxurious rooms nestled in a beautiful stone building. Located just off the spectacular Stradun Avenue and only a few minutes from the impressive 13th century city walls, guests can experience Croatian culture, history and literally immerse themselves in the setting of “King’s Landing” from the Game Of Thrones series.
Where to eat?
The Lucin Kantun restaurant is a haven of peace located in a small alley in the city centre, offering ultra-refined cuisine at reasonable prices. It is an opportunity to discover all the culinary specialities of the region, from sea urchins cooked in the form of textured toast with aioli to grilled octopus dipped in a succulent tomato sauce, not forgetting the squid ink risotto or the appetising platter of grilled fish and seafood to share. A pleasure for the taste buds and a very friendly welcome.
Where to swim?
How about a boat trip, a restaurant with its feet in the water and a delicious swim on an almost deserted island? Bowa, located on the island of Suđurađ 15 minutes from Dubrovnik, is a real treasure. With a reservation (at least the day before), a shuttle will pick you up at the port to take you to lunch and try to get your hands on a sunbed (first come, first served). For those with a larger budget, you can book one of the 5 small dream cabins on stilts for a minimum of 4 people.
Where to go out?
An institution of Croatian nightlife located on the rooftop of a fortress built in the 15th century and reinforced in the 16th century, the Revelin houses a museum during the day and is transformed into a club at night. The atmosphere will depend on the programme, but expect relatively commercial electronic music. Lovers of undergroud electro will prefer the Lazareti club, located a few steps away, while lovers of beach parties will go to the Coral Beach Club, a few kilometres from the city centre.
