Cruise Diary: Dubrovnik, Croatia

Journalist Lou Freed and her husband Jim (who took the photos) are sailing the Mediterranean on Noordam’s Roman Empire Cruise. Enjoy!

Dubrovnik, once called the Republic of Ragusa, has a rich and varied history as seen from the architecture of homes and churches in town. The Pile Gate is the main entrance to the old city, famed for its city walls. If you’re looking for a great hike with terrific views of the old town and surrounding areas you can walk the perimeter of the city walls in an hour or so. The local food market is a great place to shop for mouthwatering delicacies, local wines and other products that are unique to the area. Embroidery as a craft lives on in Dubrovnik for visitors to remember the town. Embroidery selections range from ladies’ clothing to handbags, from tablecloths to napkins and more. Bargaining is acceptable in this Mediterranean town. If you’re looking for lunch or just a cool spot to get out of the hot sun, try Dubrovnik’s Proto Restaurant, one of HAL’s recommended stops. There are also a number of sightseeing boats that will take you on a tour of the surrounding areas.
