About Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik was an independent merchant republic for 700 years until the early 1800s, with a long history of trading and diplomacy that gave it such a high status. A key location in Croatia throughout history, its most recent surge in popularity is partly down to its inclusion in the incredibly popular television adaptation of ‘Game of Thrones’ which brings plenty of fans to filming locations across the city. 

Best Time To Visit Dubrovnik

Whilst many people say that the best time to visit Croatia is over the summer, the best time to visit Dubrovnik is actually in September or October when the weather will be milder but still sunny, offering the ideal conditions for walking around the city. There will also be far fewer tourists in Dubrovnik at the start of autumn than at the peak of summer, meaning fewer crowds and less hassle when you’re sightseeing.

Best Things To Do To In Dubrovnik

Whilst Dubrovnik is known for the plentiful attractions within the city streets, one of the best things to do is spend time on one of the city’s many beaches to soak up the sun and take a dip in Croatia’s signature turquoise water. Another thing the city is famous for is its breweries, so we recommend you take part in a tour or at least spend an evening sampling the locally brewed alcohol.
