DUBROVNIK, CROATIA : 14 NIGHT ADRIATIC CRUISE DAY 2

Our first official morning onboard the Norwegian Jade, we woke up and ate our breakfast while gazing at the islands and shorelines nearby. Our first stop on the itinerary took us to Dubrovnik, Croatia.

This little tug boat came to bring us in. 🙂

In order to beat the massive tourist crowds, Bryan and I kicked it in high gear and were among the very first off the ship. We snagged a taxi to take us into town to give us some time before the tour  bus waves of people all tried to enter the city. You’ll see them in the photos when looking behind us! ((:-O Haha. The first and most beautiful thing to do was to climb up onto the Old Town walls and walk them. The  Walls of Dubrovnik have surrounded and protected the citizens since the city was founded prior to the 7th century. They have had numerous additions and modifications throughout history, and they have been considered to be one of the great fortification systems of the Middle Ages since they were never breached by a hostile army during this time period. But on top of the rich history these walls hold within themselves, the panoramic water views and red rooftop landscapes seen around each turn atop these walls were just magnificent!

The harbor had such a gorgeous teal colored water it made you want to jump in!

After walking around the walls and in town, Bryan and I took the funicular up to the overlook of the city.

It was right some rain came through, so we were fortunate to get up and back down just in time!

Before the end of our day in town, we managed to locate this beverage cafe on the cliffs right on the water by weaving through the town to the coastline side of the wall. It was fun trying to guess how to get to it, an accomplishment to find it, and so so cool to sit right on the water like that!

We had a nice leisurely day at Dubrovnik and were thankful that the sprinkle of rain made its way by so that we could enjoy the gorgeous view of Dubrovnik’s coast as we set sail that evening.
