Dubrovnik the gem

Dubrovnik is the gem of Croatia, a medieval city incredibly well preserved on the Adriatic Sea coast. Dubrovnik is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the Mediterranean Sea,  the city looks and feels just like 1000 years a go and probably only shops and people change.

Being a important touristic hot spot expect crowded places and congestion when arriving and on the narrow streets and at must see places, siting at restaurants can be hard to find at lunch and diner time.

If you come by car from other city you will have to park outside old town, parking may be full if you arrive late in season so expect to walls 1-2 km from parking place. Summer is very hot in Croatia and more in Dubrovnik so be prepared for 35 C or more.

There are many beautiful small streets and corners in Dubrovnik and finding them is a adventure, fells like a labyrinth so a map and knowing what you want to see can save you lost of time and make the visit more enjoyable.
