This is the main street in the old town and your probable entry point into the wonderful walled city of old Dubrovnik. It gets crowded....I mean really crowded! Its full of the usual shops selling tourist stuff and street actors with parrots etc. However, venture...More

Walking into this street from the port took my breath away with the gorgeous architecture. Incredible when you consider the war damage, you'd never know unless you see some of the exhibitions that are available. This is the heart of the old city and is...More
