    Lapad is a neighbourhood which we happened upon because we heard there was a shopping mall there. But we found so much more than shopping here!
    There is a park with numerous cafes, lush greenery and it leads to the bay where you can overlook the ocean.

    We like it so much we came back the next day!

    Old Town's Streets That Tourists Never Tread!

    by Iteris Updated Apr 7, 2005

    A Fascinating Network Of Streets

    Walking along the Stradun in Dubrovnik's Old Town allows you to walk past most of the main historic monuments, with many restaurants and bars with outdoor seating nearby. However, wandering away from the crowds and choosing to explore the outlying reaches of the old town can be just as fascinating. Due to the towns jagged street layout and narrow walkways you can never see what is in the distance, so always feel obliged to turn the next corner and explore. What is suprising is the difference in streets levels and amount of liitle slopes and flights of stairs there are to climb. This is especially intriguing at night, too and is always safe. My friend and I did this regularly to walk off the earlier big meal, and found a few cosy bars hidden away. Don't worry, you'll never get lost as the old walls act as a perimeter and all streets seem to lead to back to where you started.

    for me, to walk the streets of a city until youre all half-dead and cant feel your legs anymore, is the best way to know and feel a new place....
    Dubrovnik is a difficult place to hike because all streets and allies are builts up and down and you will have to show great shape (if i could, anyone could, i promise :))
    dedicate at least one day to walk around the houses in the small streets and allow yourself to go lost.... you will discover beautiful architecture, colorful plants and flowers and some really nice locals.......

    Dubrovnik is very touristic and you are so lost inside the crowds of tourists, that you can hardly see the locals (who are by the way, so so friendly!)..... but you could just sit and relax in one of the squares or fountains and look at people. here are some of the nices people in the world!!

    Small Onofrije's Fountainn

    This is a small Onofrije's Fountain which is situaeted at the other end of Stradun. There is Luza Palace in the background and you can admire its lovely facade and the main yard. Nowadays it contains archives so the upper floors are not to visit.

    By the sea

    After checked-in to the private room, I didn't waste any time in exploring Dubrovnik !
    Walking along by the sea was really amazing !
    The private room that I stayed in was the middle distance from the sea & the Old Town, what an excellent location.
    I was walking in the direction to BABIN KUK area.

    A walk of the walls is absolutely essential for views across the city. When you've finished, there is a small outdoor bar just below the walls on the coastal perimeter. The views out to sea and of the islands around Dubrovnik are spectacular. To find it, go up the large steps leading up from the main square, turn to the left of the church and yopu will see signs foer 'Bar With Moust [yes, moust] Beautiful View'.

    Walk the walls of Dubrovnik.

    The best way to see the town in its entirety is by seeing it from the wallwalk point of view. We were just on the first 10 minutes of our walk here in this picture. I still had my pistacchio ice cream. Wait til you see us an hour from then. Our tongues were hanging out and we walk/run in spurts. If you wish to walk the entire wall, it would take you 2 hours at the least.

    We didn't go inside this church, the first as we enter the main gate, but I couldn't miss its beautiful door, and the Dalmatian Renaissance wheel-window.

    To the west of the old town is the round peninsular of Lapad. It's great to explore for a few hours and it has some great beaches and parks.

    Scenery on the walkway to/from Lapad and Babun Kuk

    Island in the distance

    The walk to/from Lapad and Babun Kuk is fascinating. There are sunbathing opportunities the entire way, but the best part is the teal blue water crashing at your feet and the islands in the distance.

    Dubrovnik's Coastline

    The walk directly out of the Old Town towards Lapad offers stunning views of the coastline and Old Town, it's definately worth walking over there at some point.
