The city on the sea – Dubrovnik

I had always heard of the city on the sea – Dubrovnik. I longed for this destination that was protected by medieval walls and a lot of support from legends. I loved history and culture, a reason why this town turned out to be a great success among all the other places that I had visited before. Planning the journey was not demanding at all. I could obviously find myself there through plane. There were a couple of flights for me to choose from. Australian airlines, Croatian airlines and British airways were some of the options that I had.

Strategically located is the Dubrovnik airport, which is approximately 13 miles to the South East of this city. Transport services to and from the airport are aplenty. After each British and Croatian airline flight, Atlas airport buses are ready to run through this ancient town to Pilate Gate. Taxi services are also available all through, at fee that won’t drain one’s pockets.

This is the most prominent itinerary to a greater proportion of people who visit the city on the sea. Besides giving the newcomer an opportunity to explore some bearings, it is an opportunity to admire and appreciate the intricate jewel and applaud the expertise of those who designed and put it in place.

Have a look at the Stradun


It is rated as one of the most romantic streets of the world. Besides being the widest of all streets in the town, it serves an important function of connecting the old harbor to this town. This is one of the few places which do not allow entry of cars. As such, you will only run into joyful children running here and there.
