Dubrovnik

Location: Dubrovnik, Croatia

This place is the holy grail as far as old walled town tourism goes in Croatia, so we thought we would devote a whole page to it!

Not sure how they built these things, but I think our builder fathers would be happy with the stone work and concreting!

Forts on rocky peninsulas protect the walled town outside of the walls but I think I'd just be gazing into the beautiful waters rather than looking out for invaders!

Another view inside of the walled town.

Inside of the walled town. You can just make out the wall in the top left corner of this photo and it actually goes 2km around the whole town ranging up to 6m thick and 25m high.

If your legs will carry you up the (many small and steep!) steps through the streets above the walled town you can get great shots of the whole thing.

We generally had lovely clear skies, but unfortunately just not quite warm enough to go for a dip in the very inviting waters.

St Blaise's (Dubrovnik's patron saint) church inside of the walled town.

The 12th century Cathedral inside of the walled town.

Up (more!) steps and along a few winding alleys will bring you to this great spot looking over (high cliffs!) towards the SW Fort and the walls.

The walls at sunset.

We had picnics in some great places on this trip - can't beat fresh food (bread, cheese, smoked ham, olives) and of course wine, plus views!
