Visit Croatia For The Holidays

Visit Croatia this holiday season

visit-croatia-for-the-holidays

Flying to Dubrovnik in December and into January isn’t as bad as it may  sound. It is an off-peak time but there are still many things to do while you are there. For one, you will avoid the tourists and basically have the city all to yourself. Now that sounds like a plan to enjoy a little alone time and tour the Game of Thrones! Consider the discovery of Dubrovnik for the holiday season!

One of the first places you will want to head to is the Old Town, which is the old part of the city that is actually rather new as it had been rebuilt after the war in the early 1990s. The first reason why you should go in December/January? Hotel prices are very inexpensive. You can stay in an awesome location for a really good price and be where everything is. We press you to try and do this during the summer months. You just won’t be able to!

In the Old Town, there are many things to see and do. You can check out the Dominican Monastery with its amazing architecture, cool little gift shops, Sponza Palace, the Old Port (with a wonderful view of the harbor from outside the walls), Rector’s Palace (a Gothic-Renaissance style mansion and museum), the Dubrovnik Cathedral, and St. Ignatius Church. There is so much more you can see and do but these are some of the highlights.

The great thing about touring Dubrovnik during the off-season is that you can wander the streets, climb countless staircases, walk through narrow alleys and search for the best views. They are everywhere but you can’t do this very well in the summer. When you find a spot, the views will take your breath away.

Once the sun sets you will feel the chill of the winter night air but there are lovely bars and restaurants open that will help you warm up! Old Town is lit up with festive Christmas and New Year’s decorations. There is even a Christmas market that has dancing with a DJ, colored lights and drinks! There’s always a party in Dubrovnik even in the winter!

Another thing you can do in Dubrovnik in winter is taking a walking tour of the Game of Thrones. See where many of the show’s scenes were shot, right in Dubrovnik and its surrounding areas. These tours are private and available to you all year long. So why not let someone lead you around and show you all that this great city has to offer? You won’t be fighting crowds of people for the best views. They are yours for the taking.

If you are looking for a little European getaway, consider Dubrovnik in winter. You will basically have the city to yourself and you will be able to appreciate the city just a little better. Do come back in the summer, however, so you can experience all of the hustle and bustle that this incredible city has to offer as well.

Tour the Game of Thrones today!

Above & Beyond

We had an amazing time with Tom today. He was very knowledgeable with facts and info of Dubrovnik. The activity was pitched at just the right level and Tom really went out of his way to cater to the needs of each individual in the tour. He also went above and beyond what he was supposed to do. He even stayed late to ensure we have seen everything as we took longer than expected climbing the walls in Dubrovnik.
