Top of the Dubrovnik Cable Car at Sunset

Croatia
The view from the Dubrovnik Cable Car at sunset is completely breathtaking - but did you realise there's parking at the top which means, if you have a car, you can simply drive up there and avoid the Dubrovnik cable car queues completely? One of the dominant features in and around Dubrovnik is the cable car, which runs between Old…

Konavle Off-Road Safari, Dubrovnik: Review

Croatia
We were recommended to try the Konavle off-road safari by another of the guests staying at our apartment, who returned one afternoon full of excitement about the day they'd just had doing the same.

Srebreno and Mlini Beaches

Croatia
We arrived early for our first day in Croatia having driven from neighbouring Montenegro and had a large part of the day to kill before we could check in to our apartment in Mlini, near Dubrovnik.

Cavtat

Cavtat

Croatia
Our apartment in Mlini was closer to the town of Cavtat (pronounced "savtat") than Dubrovnik itself, which was extremely convenient because Cavtat was much easier to visit, particularly for evening meals, than battling the crowds in Dubrovnik Old Town. Cavtat is a smaller, quieter town with a harbour, a small beach, a town centre and tons of restaurants all around…
