You may have only heard about this city through the popular series “Game of Thrones”, but Dubrovnik is worth a visit for far more than just that reason. Located in the southern part of Croatia, Duborvnik’s white buildings covered in terracotta roofs make this city an architectural gem.
The beautiful architecture faces the bright blue Adriatic Sea, which is a lovely resting spot after a long day of walking around the city. Take a cable car to Mount Srd for a gorgeous view, visit the Lokrum isle located nearby, or have a drink at the many cliff bars that dot a city with Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architecture.
