Dubrovnik, Croatia as seen through Instagram photos

I had wanted to visit Croatia for the past few years. I had an idea that it would be a favourite country of mine but I hadn’t realized that I would fall in love with it. I visit for a week in total. My trip start as I walked off the ferry from Bari, Italy in Dubrovnik. I had meant to travel to other parts of the country as well but I just ended up spending the whole time in Dubrovnik. I hung out, I made new friends, I got a tan, I ate delicious food, I took some video, lots of photographs and of course I instagramed up a storm.

Here is a selection of my favourite instagrams from my trip to Dubrovnik, Croatia.

    I fell in love with Croatia and Dubrovnik a few years ago when I started researching it and I just haven’t managed to make it there yet. But it is on my travel plan for the next few years. Thanks for sharing your photos, they are making me jealous! :)

    I felt like I have taken a step back in time when we entered the Old Town in Dubrovnik. Definitely one of the most beautiful medieval cities I´ve ever been to! I was quite surprised how clean the city was and also by the fact that we managed to communicate in English with vast majority of locals we´ve met. Beautiful photos you posted here. Some of them quite artsy!

    Do you remember the name of the pizzeria and the place where you got the Black risotto? Trying to get recommendations for some good eateries.

      The place where I had the Black Risotto was called Portun and was on the main street in Old Town Dubrovnik and I can’t remember the name of that pizza place but it was in the square by the “Spanish Steps”. Any pizza place there was pretty awesome :)

    I have been trying to figure out where to go for my next trip. There were so many places in Croatia and I had no idea where to start. Looking at these photos have made me lean towards visiting Dubrovnik.

      Thanks!! I actually rarely use instagram filters – most of the edits were done with an app called camera+ I love it! :)

      Thanks Noel. The Symphony was definitely worth going to! It was such a cool experience and reasonably priced. If you go ask for the cheap seats and you get to sit at the top overlooking the whole thing as you can see in my photo. It was really cool :)

    Oh, I’ve always wanted to go to Croatia. Dubrovnik sounds perfect — especially the pizza and ice cream part. I eat a lot of both on my travels, no matter where I am :)

    Gorgeous photos! I can see exactly why you decided to stay the whole time there. I enjoyed other towns in Croatia, like Korcula, but Dubrovnik was definitely my favourite. I only had 1.5 days there and unfortunately had to spend a lot of time trying to sort out my stolen wallet, but I was lucky enough to have pre-booked a Game of Thrones tour that included entrance to the city walls. Would have been very sad to miss out on that!

    I encountered the ‘no ice cream’ policy there too — got kicked out of a bank because I was eating gelato!

    I love your photo of the symphony! It sounds like you had better luck with food in Dubrovnik than I did. Wish I could be swimming in the Adriatic now.
