Famously described as "the pearl of the Adriatic," Dubrovnik is a city located on the southern coast of Croatia. You might recognize Dubrovnik as King's Landing from "Game of Thrones," but this city is filled with a history and culture all its own within the iconic city walls.

Take a walk through the Old Town to discover the city's true essence. In the main square, you'll find the iconic bell tower, as well as Orlando's Column, the Church of Saint Blaise, and a statue of Dubrovnik's most famous playwright, Marin Držić. You can even take one of the many available guided walking tours to see some of the lesser-known areas of the Old Town. If you prefer to forge your own path, walking the city walls is the easiest way to get your bearings. Enjoy magnificent views of the city and coastline along the 1,940-meter walkway and stop for refreshments at open-terrace cafes along the way.

After exploring Dubrovnik's various historical landmarks, take a break by unwinding on the beach. One of the most appealing beaches in the area is Lapad beach, thanks to a pedestrian zone opposite the aquamarine waters with several bars and restaurants.

Unlike Daenerys, you won't need dragons to get to King's Landing - er, Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik Airport provides international air travel through many major airlines, and several bus providers stop at the city's station from nearby towns.

Located on the picturesque Adriatic Coast, Split is the second-largest city in Croatia. With a history including Roman, Venetian, Austrian, French, Italian, and Yugoslav rule, Split has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its many historic attractions and strikingly varied architecture.

The Palazzo di Diocleziano lies at the city's historic heart. This exceptionally well-preserved 4th-century palace showcases the Roman emperor Diocletian's stately retirement home and military camp. Walk along the Roman streets with their original paving stones, and see if you can identify several "Game of Thrones" filming locations. After walking through the maze of cobblestone streets in Old Town, sit in one of the many cafes in People's Square for an afternoon coffee.

For even more of a taste of Croatia, visit one of the local restaurants. As Split is a coastal town, seafood dishes are the standard, but the flavors are far above standard! Make sure to try brudet, a traditional seafood stew commonly served along the Croatian coast. Finish your meal with mandulat, a traditional dessert from the Dalmatia region, made with honey and almonds.

You can easily reach Split from many national and international destinations. Split Airport offers international flights, and an airport shuttle bus provides easy access to the city. Bus services connect Split to many cities across Europe, including Budapest, Berlin, and Bratislava. Deutsche Bahn trains even run all the way to Split, so you can travel the entire length of Central Europe.
