Whether you want to chow down on tasty seafood, put on your dancing shoes or stroll through the streets of King’s Landing, the historic Croatian city has it all…
Although built in the 16th-century, it’s almost as if the Revelin nightclub was designed for all-night raves. This Medieval fortress features big open spaces for dancing, stone walls and vaulted ceilings. Top acts like Axwell, Fedde Le Grand, and Sander Van Doorn take to the decks, and you can keep on partying until 7am.
If you’re into seafood, you’re in luck. The city’s coastal location means you can get your hands on any type of fishy fare, and it’s delivered direct from sea to plate. We recommend Villa Ruza. This restaurant’s terrace sidles up to the sea, so it’s a great spot to watch the sun sink below the horizon. The menu lists loads of different types of freshly-netted fish and it’s cooked on an al fresco stone grill by staff who can’t do enough for you.
From 10th July to 25th August, Dubrovnik hosts its summer festival with a packed line-up of performing arts. It kicks off with a big fireworks display at the harbour and theatrical shows, like Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, take place in the city’s streets and squares. This year marks the festival’s 66th edition, so organisers have had plenty of time to refine their act.
You can expect to get déjà vu in Dubrovnik if you’re a GOT fan. The majority of the King’s Landing scenes were filmed here. For starters, Fort Lovrjencac doubles up as the Red Keep, the residence of the king. Even the Thomson hotel Grand Village Argentina features in a few of the episodes, where filming took place in the gardens. Make sure you get yourself on a walking tour to see more of the sights.
After being founded in the 7th century, Dubrovnik’s ancient city walls still stand proud today. They’re so sturdy, they even survived an earthquake in the 1600s. The walls are 25 metres high in places, and the streets within them are closed to traffic so they’re really easy to explore. Expect lots of steps and lovely harbour views.
Lokrum Island, which is a 10-minute boat ride off the coast, is really kid-friendly. It’s got a few parks and gardens and a small lake which is safe for swimming. Back on the mainland, there’s an aquarium that little ones are sure to love. It’s conveniently-located within the old city walls, so you can pop in there for a few hours of shade in between checking out the sights.
