Dubrovnik, Croatia Is What Dreams Are Made Of

Scroll for More#

Croatia is a beautiful country, home to many ports we love to call on. But Dubrovnik, with its stunning coastline, sparkling turquoise waters, medieval city walls, and red tiled roofs, has a special place in our hearts. These things also make Dubrovnik one of the most photogenic cities in the world, the kind of place you daydream about while sitting at your desk on a dreary Monday.

Dubrovnik's ancient city walls are the finest in the world, and the main attraction for most visitors. They provide stunning views over Old Town and the sparkling Adriatic Sea. Take your time as you walk the walls, stopping for breaks and photo opportunities. Don't forget to bring a couple bottles of complimentary water from your stateroom for your day of exploring! Though as this next photo shows Dubrovnik is stunning even in stormy weather.

Here's some fun travel trivia for you! Parts of HBO's popular television series Game of Thrones have been filmed in Dubrovnik. Old Town is the perfect stand-in for the fictional King's Landing.

 A quick cable car ride to the summit of Mount Srd will provide a new, breathtaking perspective on the city.

Dubrovnik is just as beautiful - maybe even more so - at night. Try local wines and fresh seafood at restaurants in Old Town, and mingle with friendly locals at quaint pubs. Live music, especially at the jazz-focused Troubador Cafe. Absorbing the nightlife is one of the best ways to really get to know a city and one of the reasons Azamara ships stay later in port.

In addition to incredible history, cuisine and shopping, Croatia is known for its beautiful beaches. Dubrovnik's Banje Beach may be pebbly, but is still a favorite spot for swimming, sunbathing and people-watching.
