The fortress in Dubrovnik, Croatia

A Glimpse of Dubrovnik Harbors

What unique harbor have you visited?

Dubrovnik Croatia has multiple harbors, and we liked each for different reasons. One is the west harbor which has some stunning views of both the fortress and the city walls. It is also Blackwater Bay in the popular Game of Thrones series. There is also a second main harbor near the Pile Gate on the south end of town. It has many benches and is a wonderful place to watch a sunset or even a storm. We love being near the water and enjoyed both places.

What history museum fascinated you?

We visited Rector’s Palace in Dubrovnik in late November. This palace is a Game of Thrones location, so we had to stop by. The inner stairway and columns were used in the scene where Daenerys meets the spice king in Quarth. Today, the palace is home to a cultural history museum where we got a taste of the city’s history. It also hosts musical events in a concert hall.

Have you ever dreamed of visiting a walled city?

Dubrovnik was the place I wanted to visit most in Croatia because it is a walled city. This means you go through a gate on either end to enter, and once you are inside, the Old Town sits within the walls. It is an amazing place to visit on its own and walking the city walls is just magical.

What characteristics make you fall in love with a city?

Dubrovnik was a major draw to go to Croatia in the first place, and we found it to be way more interesting than we thought. We loved the medieval charm of this walled city and also having it nearly empty in November. The narrow alleyways, street cats, museums, fortresses, city walls, and troubled history made it a must-see destination. Dubrovnik is located on the Adriatic Sea and is a stunningly beautiful place to visit any time of year.

What town have you explored that was nearly empty?

We heard that Trogir Croatia is known as little Dubrovnik, as it has a lot of the same things, but is smaller. It is one of the most well preserved medieval towns and is stunningly beautiful. It is situated on a small island just off the Croatian mainland. The island is surrounded by walkways with boats and fishermen. The town is walled with several gates, just like Dubrovnik.
