Dubrovnik: Before Drogon

Having gained most of its fame from Game of Thrones, Dubrovnik is a lot more than just King’s Landing. It is probably one of the most beautiful places I have visited.

The view of clusters of identically colored white houses with red roofs with the backdrop of the Adriatic sea, the quaint alleys packed with cafes serving some of the best pizzas and sea food, the city has a strange charm that makes me want to go back as soon as the hole in my pocket is fixed. Well, yes, Dubrovnik is expensive. But is it worth it? Hell, yes! Having visited this place just after Montenegro, it’s tough to decide on which one I like more. So my suggestion is to visit both places. If you want to find more about my Montenegro trip, you can read about it here.

We reached Dubrovnik by a bus ride that took longer than we had expected, partly due to traffic and partly due to an unprecedentedly long border control check. Not only did all of us have to queue up to get our passports checked, we had to queue up again to get our luggage checked. So yeah, all that resulted in our ride time almost doubling up.

Oh well, but we finally did reach Dubrovnik. And it was so beautiful! I was partly sad the entire way for leaving Kotor which was one of the most beautiful places I had been to till date, but the sight of the Dubrovnik coast made me feel much better.
