Dubrovnik is one of the best places in the world to photograph. It’s no coincidence that this beautiful medieval walled town was selected as the perfect setting for the filming of Game of Thrones or as the backdrop for many other films and commercials. The Old Town is an incredible subject for a photographer, both for its stunning cityscapes as well as its maze of intimate, historic streets offering inspiring architectural details and street scenes. Add to this an incredible setting on the Adriatic coast, with wonderful sunsets, stormy clouds and winds and great photos are pretty much guaranteed!

Because of its beauty it has become very popular (and often crowded) but luckily photographers tend to go out in the morning and evening, when bigger crowds leave the city. Apart from some museums, galleries and churches, tripods are allowed and in general photography is not limited (permits are required only for commercial use). Some landmarks have opening times not suitable for sunset/sunrise shootings (city walls or Lovrijenac fort) but luckily there are many other spots where you can capture morning and evening light.

Dubrovnik can be visited throughout the year. The peak season is July and August when it can be very crowded and hot, but if you are travelling during these months, this should not hold you back from visiting. In winter, many restaurants and bars are closed, museums and landmarks have shorter opening times and the city is much quieter and you can use this to your advantage.
