  • We had some great cocktails HERE
  • Did you like the Plitvice Lakes? Then, you shouldn’t miss the smaller but more fairytale-like version near Šibenik called National Park Krka Waterfalls. It’s easy to find some tours in the old town.

  • The Cable Car up to Srđ Mountain is a must-see-view-point in Dubrovnik, especially at sunrise and sunset.
  • For always fresh fish dishes with the local touch look out for the blue-white umbrellas at Restaurant Kamenice and Restaurant 360° owns a Michelin star.
  • Sometimes, Dubrovnik is heavily overcrowded. To escape the masses you can hang out in the Lapad District, especially around the park area.

 

Day 7 – Your Choice: Free Day in Dubrovnik (with lots of options)

  • Once you arrived in Dubrovnik, you know why you came. The City Walls are spectacular and worth every penny of the entrance fee.
  • If you want to see where Sisi (the wife of Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph l) was spending her time to escape society visit the Island of Lokrum for 10€/person for a return ticket to the Island and back. Beware of the Peacocks!
  • Cavtat is a small port town near Dubrovnik. There, you will find a small museum dedicated to Vlaho Bukovac, the famous Croatian painter. If you want to enjoy world-class Croatian art go to Cavtat, buy yourself a ticket and contemplate afterwards about life while sipping coffee at the harbour and the wind is blowing through your hair on a warm good-hearted summer evening.
  • You are right at the border to Montenegro. Why don’t book yourself a day trip to UNESCO port town Kotor in the mighty Bay of Kotor?
  • Pelješac peninsula is a wine region. Wow, these wines just are so deep and warm and “mouthful” with beautiful flavours of all sorts of berries and tobacco, and leather. There are some wine tours available. For sure they will show you some great wineries like Grgič, Saint Hills or MIloš.
