Why Dubrovnik
is special to cruisers

Dubrovnik is an endearingly picturesque Adriatic Sea port town with a rich history.

Dubrovnik attractions


The tightly quartered buildings inside the city walls are photogenic. Narrow, stone streets add to the charm.

Ancient City Walls

They are Dubrovnik's icon. Leisurely amble on the pathway that runs on top of the rampart on the tall, thick, long stone walls. You'll have a striking view of Dubrovnik's old buildings.


Dubrovnik's main street - the Stradun - cuts across old town. It is lined with shops and bookended with fountains. In tourist season, it's populated with strolling tourists and locals.
