Photography Tour Around Dubrovnik, Croatia

This tourist hotspot held nothing back when we visited in October. To call Dubrovnik a picturesque city would be an understatement. From the amazingly-preserved old city walls to the medieval limestone cobbled streets to the breathtaking views from Srd Hill overlooking the city, every corner of Dubrovnik exuded splendour.

What better way to share this experience than taking a virtual tour through my lens. Come along and soak up the scenery. And if you like what you see, go ahead and share it with your friends on Facebook or Twitter

Old City

A stunning view of Dubrovnik from the top of Fort Lovrijenac. I could look at this all day long.

The main square in the old city near the Pile Gate. We were walking along the city walls to get the best vantage point. Gorgeous!

This café/bar is chiselled into the side of the cliff face with the most amazing sea views. But finding this location takes some knowhow. It’s literally a hole-in-the-wall.

Peeking at the old city rooftops from a small window within the city walls.

Tranquillity.

The best place to soak up the sun in Dubrovnik.

Narrow limestone streets and cute cafes abound in the old city.

Walking along the walls of the old city provided stunning views.

Cliff jumping. Not for the fainthearted…

…Or just find a sunny spot on a rock and lounge like a lizard.

Dodging the cruise ship crowds.

Dubrovnik Cathedral.

Any time is icecream time.

Stairway to the city walls at the eastern side of the old city.

Quiet, old street with a lone elderly lady selling hand-crafted clothing and beautifications.

The best preserved fortified city walls in all of Europe.

Franjevacki Samostan near the Pile Gate.

 

Fort Lovrijenac (The Fortress)

Translucent aquamarine waters of the Adriatic Sea combined with the rocky outcrop and proud fortress create a postcard-perfect scene.

The dark, mysterious halls of The Fortress.

Peeking through the eastern wall to see the old city of Dubrovnik.

This bay may be familiar to Game Of Thrones fans as ‘Blackwater Bay’. The colour of the water is anything but.

The water is so clear the boats look like they are floating midair.

 

Srd Hill

Above it all, situated 412 metres above the sea, the best view of Dubrovnik.

The long shadow of history. Memorial to commemorate the Croatian War of Independence.

Northern harbour, rolling green hills and Dalmatian islands on the horizon. My favourite view of Dubrovnik. I could look at that all day long.

Cruise ship passing by the island of Lokrum off the coast of Dubrovnik.

Old city harbour.

Scars from the shelling that occurred during the Siege of Dubrovnik (part of the Croatian War of Independence), still visible 23 years later.

 

Hotel Dubrovnik Palace

Watching the ships sail by from our hotel suite balcony.

A cool, refreshing swim in the Adriatic Sea? Yes please.

Flawless shades of amber, marigold and violet dance in the sky and reflect off the infinity pool as the clouds on the horizon embrace the golden sun.

There really are NO Words to describe how beautiful Dubrovnik is. I can't wait to see it myself one day. It is on my bucket list; maybe for summer 2016.

Hi, I am from Turkey and planing to in Dubrovnik from August 28th to September 2nd.
