The view from the city wall of Dubrovnik will leave you breathless. Eoin and I visited on the last full day of our honeymoon in Croatia and it was quite the finale. As you may know, Dubrovnik is the set for King’s Landing in the HBO Game of Thrones series, and it would be hard not to feel like you had been transported to an ancient place or time gazing at this view. The terracotta roofs and ancient stones are truly reminiscent of the city’s medieval history, and make the place so unique it’s unforgettable, even for the most seasoned traveler.
The day had been very hot and the humidity was high, so I opted for this off-the-shoulder top and some breezy culottes. The wind was also very high once we had climbed up to the wall, so I had to pull my hair back for most of the time up there. Once we were about three quarters of the way around the city, it became apparent that a huge rain storm was rolling in. We all had to dash down off the wall amongst many a “Winter is Coming” jokes, and huddle in under one of the many stone arches in the old town until the rain passed. Even so, this landmark is un-missable if you find yourself in Dubrovink.
