How to Make the Most of One Day in Dubrovnik

A short visit to any destination can be tough to plan; you want to maximize your time to see as much as possible. The same is absolutely true for Dubrovnik, Croatia – a small city with enough sites and experiences to fill far more than a short trip.

It’s entirely possible to spend only a day in Dubrovnik and still experience the best this uniquely beautiful and historic city has to offer.

Early Morning – Sunrise over Dubrovnik

Rise early to enjoy the sunrise over Dubrovnik from Mount Srd, The mountain, part of the Dinaric Alps. While no comparison with “the Alps” in altitude, they attribute to Dubrovnik’s dynamic hills and stairwells.

8:00am – Get Exploring

Once inside the walls of the Old Town, be sure to stop and see the statue of Orlando outside the Church of Saint Blaze. You’ll find many interesting statues and churches within Old Town

10:00 am – Exploring the Walls

Be sure to spend the money (120HRK/$17US) to explore the Walls of Old Town Dubrovnik. As part of its UNESCO World Heritage Site status, the walls are the primary site (and sight) people come to see in Dubrovnik.

11:00 am – Lunch

After a morning of climbing stairs and walking the walls of Dubrovnik, duck into one of the small restaurants in the Old Town for an early lunch. Consider Taj Mahal Bosnian Cuisine, a Bosnian restaurant that serves delicious homestyle food.

12:30 pm – Beach Time

After lunch, make your way to a nearby beach. There are lots, but Bellevue Beach, behind the Hotel Bellevue Dubrovnik, is a good choice.
