What to do in Dubrovnik

Walk down its main street, Stradun and visit all the crafts shops before going for dinner in one of its many excellent seafood restaurants with incredible views of the port.
Districts of Dubrovnik

Pile is west of it and is the entrance to the city while Ploce is the port on the other side of the city. In Lapad you will be able to enjoy the city’s beaches whilst Babin Kuk is further north and a more residential and touristy area outside the city centre.
When to visit Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik enjoys temperatures that easily go above 85ºF in summer, which is when the city has the larger amount of tourists. The Bura wind arrives from October to April and can be a bit uncomfortable, so between April and September is definitely the best time to visit Dubrovnik.
Getting in and around Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik’s location makes transport difficult. The nearest train station is over two hours away, so it’s recommended to arrive by plane, boat or bus. Its airport connects Dubrovnik with many European cities whilst the boat and the buses take you to or from other Croatian islands or cities respectively. The best way to see the city is definitely on foot.
Festivals in Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik enjoys a carnival that fills the city with colour, music and parades in the month of February. In April, St Blaise Festival brings out processions on the streets that parade the city’s relics. However, the biggest event in Dubrovnik all year long is its Summer Festival, a festival in July and August that brings musical and artistic shows in the outdoors that last until the early hours. With such a background landscape, it’s definitely one of the most attractive yearly events in Europe.
