Along the Dalmation Coast, the city of Dubrovnik has become famous for its pedestrian-only Old Town surrounded by fortress walls, and its historical heft has earned it World Heritage Site status.
Dubrovnik is known for historic sites, nature, adventure, nightlife, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: wander the streets of Old Town, steep yourself in history at Fort Lovrijenac, step off the mainland to explore Island of Lokrum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Medzlis.

Plan my day in Dubrovnik using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Istanbul, Turkey to Dubrovnik is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus, train, and car. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Istanbul to Dubrovnik due to the time zone difference. April in Dubrovnik sees daily highs of 21°C and lows of 11°C at night.

Gospa od Škrpjela, and finally make a trip to City Walls.
