Your guide to Dubrovnik holidays
Places to see in Dubrovnik
Despite being heavily bombed during the Croatian War, much of the city has now been reconstructed and is in fine shape. Most of the attractions are located in the city’s Old Town. The bell tower marks a significant point in the city. The bronze statue strikes hourly as the sounds ring out across the town. The city walls, which once provided strategic defence for the city, can now be walked and give a unique perspective from above. There are several entrances to the walls, and you can pay by credit card or with local currency. The Church of St. Ignatius and its Jesuit college is an ornate Baroque structure constructed in the 17th century. It’s just one of many ecclesiastical buildings that are worth visiting when you visit Dubrovnik on holiday. The city is also famous for being one of the primary filming locations of the popular TV series, Game Of Thrones. The Old Town has stood in for several locations, primarily King’s Landing, and several walking tours will take you to many of the otherwise easy-to-miss filming locations.
