Seville Photo Diary I couldn’t wait to show you more, starting with our long weekend in Dubrovnik last autumn ( read about it here). I love the contrast of the deep blue skies against the warm red terracotta roofs, and all the amazing views from the hilltops, town walls and cliffside bars. I challenge you to look through my Dubrovnik photo diary without booking your trip immediately!
I’ve arranged my photos chronologically, so you’ll start in our pretty airbnb and wander down through the streets into Old Town and around the walls, before taking a boat trip to Lokrum Island, watching the sunset from the top of Mount Srđ, and spending a day in Cavtat. Enjoy!
The lovely little terrace of our airbnb. Residential streets in Dubrovnik are steep and winding. And full of cats. The stone paved main street in Old Town. Take your photo with a parrot! Nah. Ul. Pred Dvorom, a lovely wide paved street with cafes all around. To the right are the stone archways of the Rector’s Palace. To the left is the Church of Saint Blaise. Entrance to the Old Port. Ferries leave the Old Port for islands around Dubrovnik. The view from the end of the port back towards Old Town. The view from the top of the Jezuite Steps. Gelato on the main street of Old Town. The view down main street from on top of the Old Town Walls. The historic water tower. Looking out over the terracotta roofs of Old Town from the walls. The view along the western walls from Fort Tvrđava. The view into West Harbour from Fort Tvrđava, with Fort Lovrijenac on the left. Walking along the walls with Lokrum island out to sea. One of the cafes along the walls. The view over Old Town from the walls. Getting my Khaleesi on at Minčeta Tower. The view towards Lokrum Island from the walls. You’re gonna be thirsty after circling the walls. Luckily there’s the perfect place to end the tour of Old Town. The “secret” passage to Buza Bar on the cliffs outside the town walls. Buza Bar perches outside the town walls, with incredible views of Lokrum. View of the sunset from prime seats at Buza Bar. As the sun hits the sea locals and tourists alike watch from the rocks. Benedictine Monastery Of St Mary on Lokrum island. The entrance to Rajski Vrt, or Garden of Eden, the best lunch spot on Lokrum. Benedictine Monastery Of St Mary is another Game of Thrones filming location. The road down from Fort Royal, which sits at the highest point of Lokrum. Waiting for the ferry back to Dubrovnik. Ferry’s only run in good conditions, so don’t book your ticket in advance! The view from the top of Mount Srđ over Old Town and Lokrum island. The viewing platform on top of Mount Srđ. The view in land from the roof of the Imperial Fort. Another amazing sunset over Dubrovnik. Venturing into Old Town for some evening drinks. Inside Sponza Palace, which holds a whole archive of documents dating back to 1022. Paved streets and hanging shop lanterns in Old Town side streets. Art Restaurant Renaissance, where Mediterranean cuisine and art collide. Boats moored in the harbour at Cavtat (pronounced Sav-tat). The view from Cavtat back towards Dubrovnik. Cavtat seen from the Mausoleum on top of the hill. Walking back into the harbour. Mishka the outdoor cat who lives under the grill in the garden. Fort Lovrijenac after sunset. Click to pin it!
