Dubrovnik by Night
Dubrovnik is just as beautiful at night, maybe even more so. One of the best things about staying in Dubrovnik is being able to wander the street at nightime - see how quiet it is now and the from the lamp reflections along the Stradun the polished marble floor glistens almost like gold. Other buildings like the Cathedral and Rector's Place are also beautifully illuminated. We even had a full moon to enhance our enjoyment of a night stroll here :-) Please see more night scenes in the travelogue below.
It's an important street in DUbrovnik - especially if you are into drinking and pub crawling. You can ask anyone for it, they all know it, but this street sign, you will never see it. Why? because it doesn't exist - by this name at least. Ok, the actual name is Sagrestana Street, i think... but ask someone for it, and you'll be getting blank stares!
Sidenote. asking for bourbon street will let you find the hostel easily, too.
Atlas Travel Agency has some very good day trips to areas around Dubrovnik. I took the tour to Montenegro, but tours to Mostar, Medjugorje, the outlying islands, and more are available. Tours can be booked at the office, which is located outside the Pile Gate at Sv. Durda 1, or online.
From this photo you can see the car park to the left of the town and the slightly perilous pathway that we folllowed directly in front of the camera. You can see it's not too big. Oyster beds are in the distance.

All the café's in CAVTAT are (generally) in the main Riva (tourist port, see picture), and it is a place to be (just like Stradun in Dubrovnik). During the summer you can hear some local bands singing. There are no dress codes.
Be who you are, relax and enjoy yourself!!!!
