Dubrovnik Old Town
Among all the towns we visited in Croatia, we were most excited to see Dubrovnik, not only because it was the most famous tourist destination in Croatia but also because it's where King's Landing is shot in the popular TV show, Game of Thrones. Dubrovnik was as beautiful in real life as it is on TV. It has a large old town area surrounded by massive fortress walls that protected the city from multiple attacks over the centuries. Inside the walls, we saw many well-preserved buildings ranging from Baroque Saint Blaise Church to Renaissance Rector's Palace, and the main pedestrianized Stradun (aka Placa Thoroughfare), paved with limestones and lined with shops and restaurants. We found a perfect spot for dinner, Konoba Amoret, on the open square in front of Dubrovnik Cathedral. It was our best seafood meal on the trip.
