Dubrovnik Old Town
Dubrovnik is absolutely stunning and not called the Pearl of the Adriatic for nothing. The Old Town is a completely walled city on the Adriatic Sea in the south of Croatia and is listed as a Unesco World Heritage site. I wasn’t expecting it to be so lovely, it’s obviously had loads of EU money pumped into it as every nook and cranny has been extensively rebuilt from the crumbling ruins of the war over 20 years ago. Now every sandy stone is shining and it’s really, really clean everywhere. The Old Town itself isn’t very big at all and can be walked round in an hour or so. There are two main streets which run parallel to each other crammed with shops, bars, restaurants and historical buildings of all sorts. There are hills surrounding all sides and houses are built upwards with very steep steps leading up to more little streets and shops, and it’s got stunning views from the top. There are numerous art galleries and artists selling their work here from tiny little converted houses and some of the work is amazing. There are also a vast number of Gelateries, with the most gorgeous ice cream!
