Dubrovnik City Walls Walk: A Virtual Tour

Dubrovnik made up just one day of my 8-day sailing trip with Busabout, but for me it was the most memorable. Part of the reason for this was the breath-taking views all along the famous city wall walk.

The old city of Dubrovnik has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. Its walls are the pride and joy of the citizens of this area and “considered to be amongst the great fortification systems of the Middle Ages, as they were never breached by a hostile army during this time period.” (Wikipedia). The care and reconstruction efforts put into these walls over the centuries means that we can now enjoy walking on these walls as travelers, and the 100 kuna entrance ticket (just under $15 US) is completely worth it. Even in the height of tourist season (I was there in mid August), it is worth it.

Overlooking Dubrovnik from the inner wall. There is a gondola that goes up to the mountain top behind me, another great option for beautiful views.

Going with the flow of tourist traffic, which moves in a counter clockwise direction around the walls
Dubrovnik Old City Streets
Dubrovnik Old City’s main pedestrian street, we stopped here for some gelato in the shade after getting down off the walls. You cannot keep going up and down from the walls. Once you pay and get up there, you keep going until you decide to get off at one of the gated staircases.

Dubrovnik ocean walls
Heading south along the ocean. The walls reach a height of about 82 feet.
North wall
Protected inlet off the north side of the wall. You can rent kayaks down there!
Western walls of Dubrovnik
There is nothing outside the western walls but ocean…

Dubrovnik deserves at least a day of your holiday, and I highly recommend walking along the walls to see how incredible it is for yourself. Want to go sailing in Croatia just like I did? Check out the affordable options from Busabout!
