Before my exciting relocation to Barcelona three weeks ago I was happy to spend some relaxing days in Croatia’s historical city of Dubrovnik.
While the weather forecast hadn’t boded well days before my take-off, I started regretting my booking a bit. Little did I know that this city trip would become one of my favourites. For starters: I fell in love with Dubrovnik! With its architecture, its alleys, the wonderful food, the Adriatic Sea, the street music, my AirBnB, …
My little studio was the cosiest place with the best location in Dubrovnik you can have I dare say. Plus, the view was quite something, too:
Arriving late in the evening, I strolled the old town, listened to a guitarist and had cevapcici.
Looking for a trending restaurant to have typical Bosnian cuisine? Then taj mahal is your place to go. I have no idea who came up with its name but the food completely lived up to its promise. Make sure to reserve a table here!
I started the next day early to explore the little corners of Dubrovnik, take the cable car and enjoy drinks at the cliffs.
After a late breakfast I went up to the highest point of Dubrovnik to marvel at the city from above.
Back on the ground, I discovered Dubrovnik’s nerdy soul (the city is busting with Game of Thrones and Star Wars shops), a hidden and abandoned cinema and a stairway to (food) heaven.
That said food heaven had a name: Lady Pi Pi. Such. Great. Food! Imagine a cozy roof terrace with grape-vine all over, the scent of grilled goods and sweet wine in the air and a view over Dubrovnik. This place is worth all the staircases up here.
After a wonderful dinner a promising sign led me through a little hidden door to indeed “the most beautiful view” at Buza Bar:
The next day I walked the City Wall after a tiny snack just to see even more of the old town’s beauty.
And off we go…
To spare you dozens of further cevapcici photos, I’ll leave you with some Dubrovnik wanderlust for now. But beware: A blog post on my day-trip to Lokrum, a small island offshore, is coming up soon!
