Here are my top recommendations for Croatia:
- Walk the walls of the old town of Dubrovnik, getting an eagle-eye’s view of the inner city, the outer islands, and the open sea
Walking the walls on a rare rainy day.
- Stop for a break at the “Hole in the Wall” where, once you literally walk through a small hole in the fortress wall, you’ll find a pleasant spot to enjoy a beer and view the sailboats, nearby islands, and cliff jumpers
And the view from the other side.
- Buy fresh lavender, figs, olive oil, or handmade lace from any of the many stands selling local goods
Garlands of fresh figs and homemade brandies.
- Visit the Sponza Palace Historic Archives for a history of the city of Dubrovnik, and view photos of all the men and young boys who lost their lives while defending their hometown
- Try some of the local wines (Croatia is well-known for their wines)
- Take a dip in the cool Adriatic sea
Take a dip! Clothing optional.
- Walk the Placa-Stradun (main street) at night, from Big Onofrio’s fountain at one end, to the Bell Tower at the other, stopping along the way for a slice of pizza and people-watching
Walking the centuries old stradun (main street).

Kristen – thanks for posting the photos! They bring back very fond memories of my wedding in 2005. We got married at the Pucic Palace, the only hotel inside the old walled city.
Ahhhh, memories! Hope you’re enjoying Croatia. It’s a fantasically beautiful country.
Yes, it is a beautiful country. The people are friendly, and the food delicious! My next blog will be about the food…ahhh.
Glad I could call up some fond memories of your Croatian wedding!
