Croatia, Dubrovnik Guide (B): One Day in Dubrovnik
One day in Dubrovnik is all that you may have time for. Whether you are arriving in Dubrovnik by cruise ship or combining holidays to Croatia with another destination, most of your time will be taken up inside the Dubrovnik city walls. They are spectacular and one that we highly recommend you visit and you must be prepared for the 2km walk. Of course, if you have time we would suggest spending at least 3 days in Dubrovnik ideally a week and include the surrounding areas as there is so much to see and do. Dubrovnik beaches are a must to visit during your stay as well. One day in Dubrovnik Croatia will certainly whet your appetite for a further visit.
