If you want a good overview of the Dubrovnik story, the City Museum is a great place to start your journey. Housed in the historic setting of the 15th-century Rector’s Palace, there is plenty here to see and do here. Similar in its architectural wonder is the city cathedral – towering over the rest of Dubrovnik’s buildings, this stunning place of worship is home to a variety of relics and artefacts that are indicative of Croatia’s past.

Last but certainly not least are the city walls themselves. Enveloping the city both old and new, the walls are a striking feature and a fascinating way to explore Dubrovnik. Dating back to the 14th century, these walls encircle the town and offer a perfect route to see the sights and capture some truly breath-taking photographs to impress your friends back home.
