VISIT DUBROVNIK: GET STARTED
DUBROVNIK TRAVEL GUIDE
WHAT TO EATRegional specialties of the Dalmatian coast: brudet (fisherman’s stew), buzara (shellfish in a wine broth), octopus salad, pašticada na dalmatinski (braised beef with gnocchi), bitva (a side of swiss chard and potatoes), oily fish like sardines and soparnik (swiss chard pie).
WHAT TO BRING BACKDalmatian wines like Peljesac or Pošip, olive oil, Dalmatinski rafioli (ravioli-shaped biscuits) and traditional hoop earrings called verzice (part of the local folk costume).
FUN FACTWhile many know of Dubrovnik’s connection to seven fictional kingdoms (Game of Thrones), few know of its role as the capital of the very real Republic of Ragusa, an important maritime state from 1358 to 1808. The republic was at different times a part of the Kingdom of Hungary, the Ottoman Empire, Habsburg Austria, the French Empire and the Kingdom of Italy. In short, the city is no stranger to drama between rulers.
