Morning Coffee in Dubrovnik Old City

If you’re enough of coffee prepared in your hotel (or by your own), then I suggest you enjoy your morning cup of coffee excatly on the Stradun (Dubrovnik Old City main street). Other places that got “in” just few years ago are caffe bars “Revelin club” (located in fort of «Revelin», just before you exit Old City on the East) and caffe bars calledUpper Buza and Lower Buza (Gornja i Donja Buza, located on the rocks in «Karmen» south-eastern part of the Old City, visitors say it’s wort walking there:) )

What to eat in Dubrovnik Old City?

Try prosciutto with olives and goatish cheese for appetizer.

For main dish I suggest you taste Dalmatian sea food,black rissotos, oysters and mussels which are grown inMalostonski bay (60km far from Dubrovnik), octopus salad, or simple and tasty grilled sardines with olive oil and garlic. Traditional fish meal is “Dalmatinski brodet” (italian brodetto), made from mixed fresh fish that give delicious sause.

If you prefer meat then you should try roasted lamb(pecena janjetina) from traditional broiler, in Dubrovnik region another popular meat meal is “Green Menestra” – mixture of fresh green and yellow cabbages with mixed meat (prosciutto, lamb and sausages). Traditional “Cevapcici” which you will be offered everywhere are brought from neihgbouring Bosnia.

Famous white vines from neighbouring Island of Korculaare “Posip” and “Marastina”. In Konavle area best white is “Dubrovacka Malvasija”. Well known reds are Dingacand Postup from peninsula of Peljesac based on “Plavac mali” grapes.

 Where to eat in Dubrovnik?

Top class restaurants are “Nautika” (on Pile), “Proto” (in “Siroka Ulica” – wide street inside Old City) and “Gradska kavana” (in Dubrovnik Old Harbour, may be accessed from Dubrovnik theatre and “Sloboda” cinema too).

But “in” fish restaurant is “Lokanda” (located in the Old City harbour), and it’s not easy to catch a table there. Another good cost/value fish restaurant is “Kamenice”, located on Gunduliceva Poljana (Gundulic Square).

On Prijeko street I suggest you restaurant “Rozarij” (located at the eastern end of the street).

Best pizzas inside the Old City you may taste in “Mea Culpa” located in Domino street and in pizzeria “Tabasco”, minute walk from the Old Town, beside “Buza” public garage.

Low budget (but tasty food) self service restaurant is located in 2nd street on your left walking by Stradun (main street) from the East.

Short review of Dubrovnik history:

Founded in 7th century by Roman refugees fleeing Epidaurum (Cavtat). Dubrovnik was independent city and later republic from 7th till beggining of 19th century (abolished by Napoleon in 1804), with economy based on trade and navigation and had big trading fleet connecting East and West Europe. Despite Dubrovnik City Walls were one of the strongest fort systems in Mediterranean, because of Dubrovnik wise diplomacy almost noone tried to attack Dubrovnik in it’s long history.

As Dubrovnik was oriented towards sea, it’s harbour was vital part of town. In 8th century shipyards and arsenal were strong enough to provide secure and efficient trade routes on eastern Adriatic.

In 1991/92 Dubrovnik was badly damaged by Serb-Montenegrian army who wanted Croatia stay in Yugoslavia, which was transforming into “Great Serbia” led by Milosevic and other nationalists. The hardest attack happened on 6th December in 1991, Serbs and Montenegrians shelved Dubrovnik and even historical Old City and monuments with more then 1000 bombshells (mostly by mortar grenades, but with Russian origin anti-tank missiles and howitzer bombshells too).

That horrible attack happened after Serbs and Montenegrians were defeated by Dubrovnik and other Croatian defenders in close combat on mountain Srdjabove Dubrovnik.

After Croatian international recognition in 1992 damaged buildings and old red roofs were carefully repaired and rebuilt so now you may hardly notice and casualties since 1991/92 (if you look carefully you may notice shrapnel wounds on some stone facades).
