I have never been more in love with a city than this one. As we drove from the airport to the old town, I got blown away by the most romantic city ever build at a coast. I have always loved the little Croatian islands, like Hvar and Korčula, so I had high expectations for Dubrovnik and Dubrovnik delivered. I feel blessed for getting the chance to explore this beautifully preserved city at the adriatic sea. It is not hard to see why they call it “The Pearl of the Adriatic”.
If you ever find yourself wandering the streets of Dubrovnik, don’t forget to walk over the medieval city walls. The view is absolutely breath taking. Even in a blazing 38 degrees, the walk around this magnificent old town is worth ever drop of sweat it takes to defy the walls. I recommend to take care of your sightseeing early in the morning ;-). For the Game of Thrones fans this city is even more dreamy. I went on a Game of Thrones tour and can tell you it is amazing! You can visit all sorts of places where scenes of the series are filmed, especially the gardens of Trsteno Arboretum (10km from Dubrovnik) are worth a visit.
While strolling the streets we found a lovely restaurant called Dafne where you can enjoy a romantic dinner on a terrace just above the busy city streets. If you prefer a sea view, a visit to the small harbors can provide this for your meals. If you are wondering what to order, all fish are freshly caught and perfectly prepared. Make sure you don’t forget to try the grilled Croatian sea-bream!
Since Croatian summers are incredibly hot, I eagerly followed the advise of the saying: less is more. I choose the beautiful pastel colored Carolina Dress from the lovely designer Rachel Turzer x Kora Rae. The classic style of this dress makes it easy to change from an all- day to an evening look. I love the soft colors and the light material that make this dress chic and comfy. This dress is the perfect companion for a perfect holiday.
