There are many reasons to visit Dubrovnik and many more if you decide to go on a romantic getaway with your better half. This beautiful Croatian city is also known as the Pearl of the Adriatic (defined as such by Lord Byron) and it has such extraordinary beauty that even UNESCO thinks it´s quite special. Yes, now Dubrovnik is a World Heritage Site that UNESCO preserves.
The truth is that it doesn´t matter what you go to do there, whether it´s walk around its old town or around its walls, eat in one of the many restaurants with an amazing sea view or go for a dip in its crystal-clear waters… it doesn´t matter; any activity will make you feel like the stars of those romantic films that all of us, especially us women, have dreamed of being in.
However, where is best to start? Perhaps the first step is to visit the old town of Dubrovnik. It´s surrounded by 1940 yards of walls and all of these yards can be walked by foot. Some of the spots of this impressive construction are 246 ft tall and they hold 16 towers, so you can imagine the amazing view that you can admire of the city and its wonderful coastline. It is truly incredible and words don´t do it justice. You have to experience it first hand, and even more so with your partner. You can also walk around the Stradun or Placa (main square) or on the main street of the old town, which goes from Pile Gate to the Clock Tower. On this street you can find some of the most important buildings in the city, such as the Rector´s Palace, Sponza Palace or the Orlando´s Column, among others.
Stradun is famous for having many restaurants, bars and cafes. However, if you intend to organise a romantic meal, the best option will perhaps be booking a table at Nautika, the best restaurant in the city. It´s located near Pile Gate, just a few yards from the Old Town. You can sample delicious seafood there and enjoy amazing views of the walls and the Lovrijenac Fortress.
If you´re still in need of more romanticism after this charming restaurant, the second proposal to definitively conquer the heart of your partner is to go to Victoria. It´s best to go for dinner so that you can enjoy its beautiful terrace, the sunset over the old town and the Adriatic Sea.
Don´t forget that Dubrovnik is also beach and sea… and what a sea! Despite that, the beaches aren´t sand beaches but rather rock beaches, so don´t walk barefoot (unless your feet are made of rock themselves).
I repeat, no matter what you do in Dubrovnik, it will be one of the most romantic holidays you will ever have.
If you´d like to surprise your partner with a romantic getaway, the Pearl of the Adriatic is probably the perfect solution. Find accommodation in Dubrovnik and you´ll see that the passion between you and your partner will grow even stronger.Tweet
