20 Things to do in Dubrovnik, Italy Travel Guide Video Transcript: (Grad Dubrovnik Hrvatska):

Is there a more visually stunning city than Dubrovnik? Nicknamed the Pearl of the Adriatic, this destination is sure to capture your gaze. Between it’s white limestone buildings, bright terracotta rooftops and cobalt blue waters that sparkle under the sunlight you’ll be dazzled during your visit. This was the final stop of our travels in Croatia, and what a way to finish of our trip.

We walked up, down, and around the Old Town clocking thousands of steps each day, and in this video we’re going to take you on a tour of of the city and show you 15 things to do in Dubrovnik.

We entered the Old Town through Ploće Gate, which is in the east end of the city strolling along the Old Port. We explored the Old Town on foot visiting Dubrovnik Cathedral, which at one point was even funded by England’s King Richard the Lionheart, after he was saved from a shipwreck on the nearby island of Lokrum.

We wandered over to Gundulić Square where a few vendors had set up for the day to sniff out a few treats. We stopped at Big Onofrio Fountain, which was built in 1438 as part of a water system that supplied water from a spring 12km away.

Then, another attraction unexpectedly caught our attention: The Old Pharmacy at the Franciscan Monastery.

Founded in the year 1317, this in-house pharmacy was set up by Franciscan friars and would go on to service the town as well as people living beyond the walls. There’s still a pharmacy within the monastery today.

We tried to visit the Rector’s Palace, which was built in the late 15th century for the elected rector who governed Dubrovnik, but it was under renovation.

A sightseeing boat tour called the “Panorama Excursion” departed from the Old Port and went out around Lokrum Island.

We decided to eat at Mea Culpa, and ordered one Dalmatian Pizza and one Seafood Pizza.

It was time for the main attraction: walking around Dubrovnik’s Old City walls. Admission is 150 kuna for a 2 kilometres walk that takes about 1 hour to complete.

The first set of walls were built in the 9th century, and then in the 14th century these were strengthened with forts along the circumference. This attraction is worth the price tag. From here you can admire the all of the old town, gaze at the shimmering waters of the Adriatic, and look out to the neighbouring Lokrum.

After that quick ice cream break, we walked over to Fort Lovrijenac, also known as St. Lawrence Fortress.

Perched on a cliff 37 meters above the sea, this fortress dominates sea and land entrances from the western side of the city.

We made a stop at Buza Bar, which is great place for drinks anytime of day, but especially so around sunset. Gradac Park, was also used as one of the Game of Thrones filming locations, so you may recognize it from the Purple Wedding.

That’s a wrap for Dubrovnik and the rest of our time in Croatia! We hope this video gave you ideas of some of the things you can do in Dubrovnik on your own visit.

This is part of our Travel in Croatia video series showcasing Croatian food, Croatian culture and Croatian cuisine.

    One tip I learned while staying in Old Town, make sure to have proper footwear and walk carefully when it rains. Almost everything in Old Town is marble and it gets really slippery when it rains. One of my classmates tried to wear flip flops in a rainstorm and almost broke her ankle.

    Audrey I need to compliment you how you pronounced Lovrijenac correctly! well some info about Dubrovnik and some critics….
    Dubrovnik`s name means Oak city,Dub is oak in old slavic….like Dubrava(neighborhood in Zagreb) so anything with dub is named after oaks….Dubrovnik(former Republic of Ragusa) was first state recognising independence of USA.
    Richard Lionheart doneted 100 000 golden ducats to Ragusa for cathedral but it was destroyed in earthquake.this is new one…well it is old but newer.what Dubrovnik had much more before any other "famous" cities in Europe and the world you will find out in the link…you will need to translate the page.it is in Croatian.
    now the critics….i can not belive you have not been in Ston and walls of Ston!!!!!seriously guys??? it is longest wall after Great wall of China!
    and in the arboretum Trsteno!
    oh,btw,Lovrijenac has 13m thick walls! and most beautiful law in the world is written on the Rector`s palace entrance:
    OBLITI PRIVATORUM PUBLICA CURATE -common good should be given priority over private matters.

    Love the video guys! For people who have enough time, a half day trip to Cavtat (about half an hour drive south) is highly recommended. My wife and I loved Dubrovnik. And we definitely agree with the walk around the walls! There is also a sunset cruise that takes you from the new harbour out around the walls and back into the old harbour after dark (captured some stunning sunset photos)

    When I went in May the palace was also closed. It opened again the day after we left so that was a shame. Definitely have to go back there to see it, and a few of the other places which we sadly missed.

    Everything is just so beautiful! I can't decide what my favorite part is! The scenes of the sea. The monastery with the old pharmacy. The food. The fortress. The beautiful walkways! Just everything! And I was gushing over your photography as well. You made beautiful views look breathtaking. And, you know you'll never get fat with that much walking! You must have been so tired by the end of the two days!
