By the end of your visit to this circumvented paradise, you might find yourself wanting to stay inside the formidable stone city walls. One head-over-heels TripAdvisor user exclaims: "There were men playing classical music, aromas in the area, the historical castle you are walking through, and some of the friendliest people you can meet. This was truly a great experience. We only stayed half the day because of the cruise but I would go again! Bring a camera because you don't want to forget this trip!"
The walls contain Dubrovnik's historic sites such as the Franciscan Monastery, Rector's Palace and Dubrovnik Cathedral. Even new attractions like the War Photo Limited are squeezed into this dense area. Another TripAdvisor user reports, "There are great shopping opportunities and some fantastic little cafes" along the picturesque alleyways. Stroll down the town's main thoroughfare, Stradun, to understand the bustling vibrancy of Dubrovnik. And don't miss the impressive Luza Square or Onofrio's Fountain.

#1 City Walls
The first thing you'll see as you approach Dubrovnik from the sky or the sea is the city walls. These ancient fortifications were built and rebuilt in the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries as the threat of Turkish invaders grew. At some points, the walls are almost 20 feet thick and 82 feet high. They enclose the entire Old Town, protected by strategically placed forts and towers.
