Top places to photograph in Dubrovnik

These are the very best Dubrovnik Instagram spots, curated by the PhotoHound team. If you've got limited time here, these are the must-see locations to shoot while you're in Dubrovnik!

Fort Lovrijenac

Fort Lovrijenac or St. Lawrence Fortress, often called Dubrovnik's Gibraltar, is a fortress and theatre located outside the western wall of the old town, 37 m above sea level. Famous for its plays and importance in resisting Venetian rule, it overshadows the two entrances to the city, from the sea and by land. Fort Lovrijenac offers some of the best views of the city walls.

King’s Landing

This is a small harbor for local fishing boats and sea kayaks. It has risen to fame as it was used as the setting for King’s Landing, one of the locations in the popular Game of Thrones series hence the title of this spot. Regardless of its newly found fame, this is a nice spot for a low light photography.

Rector’s Palace

The Rector's Palace (or Knežev Dvor) is a palace in the city of Dubrovnik that used to serve as the seat of the Rector of the Republic of Ragusa between the 14th century and 1808. It was also the seat of the Minor Council and the state administration. Nowadays the palace is a museum with a beautiful inner courtyard.

Dubrovnik City Walls View

This spot gives you unobstructed views of the mighty city walls of Dubrovnik. Minčeta tower, the highest part of Dubrovnik’s defence system, looks particularly majestic from this vantage point.

Ploče Bridge View

Ploče gate to the east of the old town is the second busiest way to get into the city. The bridge connecting the fort and monastery is always bustling with people entering and leaving the town and the road below makes a great “S” curve. Wait long enough and you’ll hopefully get an interesting-looking person walking over the bridge or a bicycle below on the road.

City Walls - Minčeta

A walk along Dubrovnik's famous city walls that surround the Old Town is a unique and wonderful experience and a must-do when visiting Dubrovnik. The walls are 1,940 metres long and you can walk all the way around them (it usually takes about 2 hours). This spot focuses on the highest part of the walls to the North, at the Minčeta tower.

Dubrovnik Classic View

From this spot you’ll capture one of the classic views of Dubrovnik’s Old Town, with colourful boats anchored in the harbour and beautiful views across to Lokrum island.

Srđ Hill Side View

Srđ (412m) is a mountain just behind the walled city of Dubrovnik. At the top you’ll find a fort built during the Napoleonic Wars. Srđ was once covered with a forest of oak trees which locals called dubrava, after which the city of Dubrovnik was named.

From this spot you’ll get the finest views of Dubrovnik. I prefer this spot to the one at the upper station of the cable car because it’s a better angle to shoot from.
