Trip Report Dubrovnik: An Adriatic Gem!

Jump to last reply

I just got back from traveling in the Balkans for 15 days. I covered 11 cities in 8 countries, and one of the highlights was Dubrovnik in Croatia.

The city's beauty is unparalleled, and the old town is one of the most stunning I have ever seen. The restaurants served excellent seafood and the weather was amazingly hot for the time of year.

I only had two days to spend in Dubrovnik, which was a shame because there is far more to do there than I could cover in that amount of time. Still, I was able to see the historic parts of the city and take the new cable car up to the viewing platform at the top of the mountain. Last time I was in Dubrovnik in 2003, the platform was still a bombed-out remain from the war, so it was nice to see that it had been restored.

I wrote about the experience on my blog if you want to take a look at photos and videos and read more about the trip: http://www.aladyinlondon.com/2011/09/dubrovnik-travel.html.
