  • Budget attractions in Dubrovnik, Croatia



    Croatia is the one of the httest destinations in Europe these days, and if somebody would want to find a great beach destination that won’t break the bank, then Croatia’s beaches are an excellent choice.

    The beaches with white sands and crystal clear water might have made Croatia famous, but there are tons of other destinations and attractions that can turn your trip into a dream holiday – and many of them are cheap! So to start off, here’s a list of budget attractions in Dubrovnik, Croatia, one of the country’s premier tourist destinations.

    Old Town

    Although Dubrovnik suffered heavy damage during the Croatian War of Independence in the 90’s, you can barely see the marks. The Old Town, for example, it as splendid as ever. There are tons of things to see in the Old Town alone, and many of them are free (no one is going to stop you from admiring them, in any case).

    Visit the Bell Tower with its famous Zelenci statues, Sponza Palace (an amazing Gothic Renaissance palace), Placa Stradun, the main street of the Old Town which is lined with shops, cafes and restaurants.

    Dubrovnik Cathedral

    The cathedral can be visited for free, and if you are interested in astounding religious architecture, then it is certainly worth a visit. The cathedral was built in the 17th century, and although the style is Baroque, it incorporates remnants of some previous churches built on the same site. The main attraction of the cathedral is the Assumption of the Virgin, a painting by famous Renaissance artist Titian.

    Old Port

    If you want to take a walk near the sea, you should visit the Old Port, a historical area where you can see cruise ships that are sent to the islands near Dubrovnik.

    The Ribarnica area of the port used to be an old fishmarket, whose gates were built in a magnificent 14th century style.The Old Port is a great place for a relaxing walk or for some cruise ship watching.

    Fort Lovrijenac

    Fort Lovrijenac is often called Dubrovnik’s Gibraltar, and it’s not that difficult to see why. This old fort is perched on some cliffs 37 meters above the sea, and nowadays it functions as a theater. The fort can be accessed through two drawbridges, which adds a romantic feel to this historic place. Theater plays are often performed in the port, so check out the schedule to see if you can catch one.

    Mount Sr?

    If you want to have a beautiful bird’s eye view of the entire city, you should climb to the top of Mount Sr? (which is a hill, actually), just outside Dubrovnik. There’s a foot path leading up to the top of the 400 hill.
