Increasing in popularity over the years, with the help of that famous TV show, Croatia’s Dubrovnik is now on the bucket list of many travellers. Come take a look at 7 reasons why it should be on yours and check out our Dubrovnik bucket list musts. You know, just in case you needed persuading.

1. You’ll feel like you’re on the set of Game of Thrones

Wanna see King’s Landing in real life? You’ve come to the right place. Dubrovnik is where lots of the epic Game of Thrones series was filmed.

You can now sit on an Iron Throne replica, explore Fort Minceta aka the House of Undying, climb up to Fort Lovrijenac which turns in to Red Keep on screen, and so so much more. Get that Instagram ready.

2. You can eat some amazing seafood.

For some of the most delicious seafood you’ll ever taste, Dubrovnik’s where it’s at.

One of our personal faves? Get off the tourist trail and climb up through the charming laneways to views over the Old Town and some freshly BBQ’d seafood at Lady Pi-Pi. Too good to miss!

3. You can grab a drink at a cliff bar

Yep, you read that right. These places are legit. Embrace your inner explorer and seek out bars that have literally been built into the cliffside of this city.

With cute parasols, few tourists and incred views of the ocean, it’d be rude not to. We’ll be seeing ya there.

Be sure to catch views of the orange roofs and blue ocean at sunset for a moment you won’t be forgetting in a hurry. Ready to get snap happy?

5. You can go on a pretty sweet night out

You’ll be spoilt for choice for a good night out in Dubrovnik with loads of bars and clubs to choose from.

But for a dose of high-energy nightlife, head on down to Culture Club Revelin. The likes of Fatboy Slim, Axwell and Afrojack have performed here. Oh, and did we mention it’s in a 500 year-old medieval fortress? Jheeez.
