The main draw for our long drive to the other end of Croatia had to be Dubrovnik old city. This fascinating old city was so full of charm that we were mesmerized by it the moment we stepped foot on it.

Besides the old city, there are two must visit side trips from Dubrovnik that sweeten this journey.
Ston City is about an hour’s drive from Dubrovnik old city.
This small town is best known for their fresh oyster, mussels and clams. If walking city wall is an interest, then the Wall of Ston is a must. After all, it is known as Europe’s second longest city wall.
Mount Srd is a mountain that sits directly opposite Dubrovnik old city. Up at the peak, it offers a bird’s eye view of the whole of Dubrovnik old city and the surrounding islands. Here, you can also catch the stunning sunset over Dubrovnik. Check out the drive up Mount Srd.
