The Pearl of the Adriatic decks the Dalmatian coast with epic beauty. Shimmering by the sea, below a gentle mountain, Dubrovnik blends rocky, medieval architecture and waterfront tranquility. The city sticks out of the sea like a mythic mirage, or the seat of a magical kingdom as it appears on the fantastical Game of Thrones. Follow the trails of kings and queen—real or imaginary—and delve into Dubrovnik.

WHAT TO EAT

Regional 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 BACK

Dalmatian 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 FACT

While 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.
