Walking the Dubrovnik City Walls – Don’t miss these Romantic spots

It’s ONLY about the views and details you notice on the way when walking atop the ‘City Walls’ in the Medieval town of Dubrovnik. You should not shy away from allowing yourself to feel a sense of privilege . There are over a dozen ultra Instagrammable super romatic spots here alone.

A BIT OF HISTORY

Definitely the most remarkable sight in Dubrovnik, the City Walls once protected the civilised, sophisticated republic for centuries. These 2km long contiguous, imposing circular walls, so to say, completely packages the medieval Old Town, with a total of 3 enterance gates.

It takes about 2-3 hours to walk all the way round on the City Walls. There are cafes, ice-cream shops & fresh juice joints, all offering a table with a view.

There are countless interesting, vantage points  or unique photo opportunities enroute. We made the most of it while enjoying a leisurely stroll, stopping to get that coffee fix or fresh juices.

Ploce Gate Bridge & around

The ornate 14th century Ploce gate on the eastern side is one of the three entrances into the Old Town Dubrovnik. The gate has an outer section which is the Revelin Fortress – a lookout point for town’s eastern approach, an inner section leading upto the main Stradun and a connecting stone-bridge running over a moat.

The place has been a favourite location for many filmmakers including those of Star Wars and the latest HBO series – Games of Thrones. Lesser mortals like me actually sit by the gate, eat some almond pastries and enjoy the views.
