There is a wide selection of marinas in Dubrovnic: Marina ACI Dubrovnik, Marina Gruz and Yacht Club Orson marinas are all conveniently located near the historical city centre. The Rector’s Palace, Pile Gate, the starting point of any old town tour, the ancient city walls and city harbour, are all within easy reach from here.
If Dubrovnic seems somewhat familiar, the reason is probably this: some of the hugely popular, award-winning television show Game of Thrones has been filmed here. King’s Landing, the Lannister family stronghold, is, in fact, to a large extent Dubrovnik. Outer walls, fortifications and the narrow streets of the old town serve as the backdrop to many of the show’s scenes.
From the north of the city walls, you will have sweeping panoramic views of Mount Srdj. If you want an aerial perspective, take a cable-car ride up or tackle the meandering walking trail. In clear weather, you’ll be rewarded with fine vistas of the islands of Lokrum and Elafiti.
