Visiting Dubrovnik Walls, Croatia

One of the things to do in Dubrovnik is taking the tour through the walls. Dubrovnik walls‘ construction started in the 13th Century, though it wasn’t completed until the 16th Century. The walls are 25 metres high and, along with other four corner forts, they encircled the old town.

The walk through the walls allows you to enjoy beautiful views both of the city and the sea. On Summer months, the walls are open from 8.00 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. and the visit costs 70 HRK. Although you could do the whole walk in an hour, you can take it easy and spend as much time as you want. Best times to get to the walls are early in the morining or in the late evening so to avoid sun on peak hours.
