Dubrovnik attractions

Walking along the top of The Old City Walls medieval peace of heritage is a highlight of any stay in Dubrovnik. The walls encircle the entire Old Town quarter and take at least an hour to explore. Most of the walls were constructed during the 13th century but have been reinforced over the years to withstand repeated attacks.

The busiest entrance to Dubrovnik’s walled Old Town is Pile Gate, which is actually two gates in one. Built in 1537, the outer gate features an arch built into a semi-circular fortification.

The original medieval Rector’s Palace has been rebuilt several times over the centuries. The palace is notable in that it manages to blend Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements into a unified whole. Now it is home to the Cultural History Museum.

The best way to enjoy a panoramic view of Dubrovnik’s ancient city is by gliding to the top of Mount Srđ on an ultramodern Dubrovnik Cable Car. Located just outside the city walls, the cable car station offers visitors a quick, easy and scenic mode of transport to the peak of the rugged little mountain.

Situated on a towering rock overlooking the Adriatic Sea, Fort Lovrijenac was constructed as a detached fortress to repel attackers from both land and sea. The original structure dates back to at least 1301. Its triangle shape and staggered terraces were built to accommodate the shape of the rock.
