Croatia

 

 

 

 

Dubrovnik By the time we visited in 2002 the war damaged Dubrovnik was completely and authentically reconstructed.  

 

Dubrovnick is a good base for several excursions into Southern Croatia.  Things we recommend doing in and around Dubrovnik include

  • Shop for brunch at the Farmer's Market (daily, main square) and then consume it from a nice ocean lookout along the sea-side wall;

  • Take a boat trip out of the harbor - they take you to nearby islands; bbq'ed fish lunch included

  • Rent a motor-scooter for a day drives along the main road North to beaches, fabulous views, and seaside konobe

  • Go to outdoor movies.

  • Visit the old synagogue.

The oldest Sephardi synagogue in the world is in Dubrovnik (picture - right) and well worth seeing.  Look for the prayer book lockers by the staircase.

 

After Dubrovnik we did Hvar and an unplanned excursion to the Slovenian alps.

 

Dubrovnik dining recommendation: Atlantic-Cucina Italiana [**, $] at Kardinala Stepinca 42.  This is a small family  (Croatian-Italian) run neighborhood restaurant about 15 minutes by cab from the town center.  Its the best place for pizza in and around Dubrovnik.    

 

 

 

    

 

 

View from hill overlooking the town and Adriatic Sea. You can get to this view by scooter, cab, or hiking up the hill from downtown.
