What you should absolutely know about Dubrovnik

City highlights, food & drinks, expressions, weather, how to get there and how to get around

The maritime, Croatian city, Dubrovnik, is a Mediterranean Sea tourist hotspot for many good reasons. Its water location offers spectacular views of the blue-green sea juxtaposed against green cliffs and red-orange topped cream colored buildings. During your Dubrovnik day trips, explore the preserved medieval walled city and you’ll find historical elements and influences from the many nations who passed through Dubrovnik, as well as religious inclinations evident in the Saint Blaise statues (patron saint of Dubrovnik) scattered around the city and the beloved St. Blaise’s church. Visit in summer to partake in the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, 45 days of plays, concerts, and enjoyment

Tour the city’s walls, 1.24 miles around the city, ranging in thickness between 13-2 and 19.8 feet. Visit the oldest arboretum in the world, Arboretum Trsteno dates back to 1492, and the oldest pharmacy in Europe can be found at the Little Brothers monastery

Be sure to sample some of the fresh and local seafood. After all, you’re in a maritime city. Other dishes to try include rich pasta, roasted lamb, veal, pizza, and any sort of tasty pastry treat. The red and white wine here are also phenomenal for the real connoisseurs

Croatian is the city’s language of choice. Although many locals speak English, they greatly appreciate any efforts to speak Croatian. “Hello” is “Bok” (pronounced bauk). “Thank you” is “Hvala” (pronounced H va La). “Yes” is “Da” and “No” is “Ne”

Dubrovnik features hot, dry summers and usually mild, wet winters. Temperatures average the 50s in the winter and high 80s to 90s in the summer. Precipitation averages 5-6 inches monthly during the winter months

The airport is located just 12 miles from the city center and is easily accessible in many ways. The airport bus will take you into the city for about 230 Croatian kuna. Hailing a taxi costs about 170 to 200 Croatian kuna

Although Dubrovnik lacks a rail system, its bus network is modern, well-run, and active for most hours of the day. Count on walking as hilly roads tend to make biking labor intensive. The city is dense enough to not need a car
