    Good shoes

    by Gili_S Written Mar 6, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You definitely want to have with you good and comfortable walking shoes, this destination is about old city and many narrow old stone streets and stairs.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Nothing special that I could think about and if you have forgotten something you can probably just find it in the "dm" store just outside the old town.

    Photo Equipment: For such old city with narrow streets the wide lens is not only very useful but almost a must items if you want to catch the whole architecture picture.

    Lonely Planet - Eastern Europe

    by pure1942 Written May 21, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: I find the lonely planet series of books the most informative and easy to use guide book out there and their Eastern Europe guide is my Bible when travelling around this part of Europe.
    The Eastern Europe book doesn't have the detail you would expect from individual country guides but is a handy book to bring with you if visiting several countries in one trip. Although bulky it does mean you won't need to carry anyty other book. I don't rely too much on guide books when actually in a place but I do find them useful to decide on where to go and how to get there.

    I had used this book on my trip to Zagreb last year and again this year on our trip to Dubrovnik. Found the compact dubrivnik section very useful for planning on what ot see and what to do during our stay in Dubrovnik. Some of the info on transport and accommodation is a little out of date already but the info on what to see and do is generally good if a little sparse but remember this book covers half a continent and so can only include brief accounts on sights. Lonely Planet has a seperate guide specifically for Croatia.

    What to pack

    by Krumlovgirl Updated Jan 4, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Be sure to take a little daypack with you in case you decide to go to an island for a day, or into Montenegro.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You definitely need to take good walking shoes. You also need some beach wear if you're going in the summer months. (Unless you want to go nude, of course, but I would still suggest shoes and a beach towel.) It is fairly mild in the winter months, but on some evenings I still required my coat-although not my hat and gloves.

    Photo Equipment: You will find plenty of photo stores inside the castle. Kodak even has its own store where I was able tp buy a rare type of battery for my camera.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Most of the beaches are pebble beaches so keep that in mind when you are packing your beach gear. And don't forget your sunscreen or you will most certainly burn.

    obviously, I pack too much

    Packing List

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bathing Suit. Summer Clothing.

    There are nice stretches of beach outside of Dubrovnik. The water was very inviting. I've never seen water so clear. We were tempted to go swimming but backed out because the water was so cold even when the sun was high. The water is mesmerizing though and I always find myself looking in. You can see the rocks lining the shores/docks so clearly even 20 feet from where you are standing. What clarity!

    Use Sunblock if you plan on walking up the walls of Dubrovnik. We underestimated the sun because the weather seemed mildly warm compared to our tropical one that we ended up getting red and dark after our two hour stint up the walls.

    Bring comfortable shoes. The city is very interesting and you'd find yourself on your feet for hours and hours just walking and discovering new areas.

    Bring a skirt if you plan on visiting the churches. They are very strict on this.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Dubrovnik is hot in the summer and so be sure you are having with you the right cloths and good outdoor walking sandals were very useful as well.
