These include the amazing views of the Stradun, the bell tower, the beautiful view of the Adriatic Sea and the St. Johns fortress. You can also get a chance to take photos of Lokrum Island.

Strut along the Stradun

Another important thing you should never miss while in Dubrovnik is the promenade Stradun. Stradun is the main street in Dubrovnik and it stretches through the Old Town.

Visit the Rector’s palace

To make your short break memorable, visit the Rector's Palace. The Palace was used by the Rector of the Republic Ragusa (when Dubrovnik was a Republic from 1358-1808). Today, this fascinating Renaissance palace houses a museum, with an art gallery containing beautiful portraits, coins, and coats of arms that evoke the history of Dubrovnik. This palace is mostly used for concerts because of its beautiful acoustics.

Don’t miss Fort Lovrijenac

This recognizable fortress is a must visit. It has been used to defend the western part of the city since the 11th century. This impressive 37meter high is a beauty that overlooks the sea. Today it is often used as a theatre, especially during Dubrovnik Summer Festival. The Game of Thrones fans recognizes it as the Red Keep in King’s Landing.

Take a Cable car to Srd

There is no better way to enjoy in panoramic view of Dubrovnik than riding with the cable car. The cable car was built in 1969 and on a clear day, you can see up to 60 kilometers.
