Photos of Dubrovnik, Croatia

Good day,

I’ve been hanging out in Dubrovnik off and on now for the better part of two weeks; oh how time flies… I want to share with you some photos from my time here and no, they aren’t all just the old city. In fact, I’ve spent far more time in the neighborhoods of Lapad and Gruz than in the old city itself. Obviously the old city is beyond picturesque and the main draw that gets people coming to the Dubrovnik Riviera but that’s not all there is.

These are some photos which should give you an idea of what it’s all about. If you’re short on time you’ll probably just stroll the streets of old city and take a tour or so which will be quite memorable. If you’re lucky and have the luxury of time, I suggest you spend a little more time the surrounding neighborhoods where you’ll realize that the Dubrovnik experience extends beyond the old city walls. The Dubrovnik Riviera is a very nice place to pass time in the summer months and having the old city in the mix only makes it that much better.

To say my mother is loving her time here would be an understatement. That said, I can’t say it’s a surprise as I knew she would and that’s why I flew her out here in the first place. I’d say Dubrovnik is one of those destinations that is best enjoyed like a fine wine, slowly sipped. Plenty of places on this planet are like pints which at the end of your trip, similar to the end of the night, are somewhat indistinguishable from the rest; that is not the case with Dubrovnik.

Oh yeah, eat the iced cream but not too much. It will be a test of your discipline, trust me.

    Excellent pics man, especially that 1st person ice cream cone shot. What are you using for photography these days?

    Dubrovnik is my favorite destinaton. I visit it every year at least once and still you manage to post some pictures of places in Dubrovnik I haven’t seen before (for example the little square with people dining)! I Should pay more attention to the surroundings next time! Thanks! (Nicole from Holland)

      Lucky you and that’s what is so great about travel, always something new to see. That square is behind Bodega. When looking at Bodega, walk along the alley on the right and when you get to the end of that alley, look left.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    btw, the aerial view/photo you had of the old town – where was that taken from? 9th photo from the top.

      It’s from St. Lawrence Fort I believe which is on the cliffs to the right of the city. It’s popular for scenes from Game of Thrones but I don’t follow the series so don’t know much more. 🙂
