Votre Dubrovnik Guide

First of all, we want to say that Dubrovnik is not a very wheelchair-friendly city, as it is a city with many stairs and cobbled or paved streets. We recommend going accompanied by someone who can help you in the most complicated sections. Be that as it may, Dubrovnik is an incredible city that is worth the effort!

Dubrovnik, the pearl of the Adriatic, is a city in southern Croatia that dazzles with its beauty and historical richness. This Croatian destination, known for its impressive walls and picturesque old town, offers a unique experience for all visitors, including those with reduced mobility or in wheelchairs.

The history of Dubrovnik dates back to the 7th century when it was known as Ragusa. Over the centuries, the city has been an important center of commerce and art, resisting both sieges and earthquakes. Its Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture reveals the influence of various eras and cultures.

Dubrovnik has worked to improve accessibility for people in wheelchairs. Although some areas of the old town, with their cobblestones and stairs, can be complicated, many of the main attractions are accessible.

The city's iconic walls, dating from the 10th century, offer spectacular views of the Adriatic Sea. For wheelchair users, it is recommended to access through the Pile Gate entrance, where there are ramps and adapted elevators.

Dubrovnik's main street, Stradun, is completely accessible and flat, making it easy to visit in a wheelchair. Here, visitors can enjoy a variety of cafes, shops, and views of historic buildings.

The city is known for its exquisite Mediterranean cuisine. Many restaurants in the old town and along the port have improved their accessibility, offering street-level tables and adapted bathrooms.

One of the most representative dishes of Dubrovnik is the "black risotto" or squid ink risotto. This dish is made with squid ink, giving it its distinctive color, and usually includes other seafood such as shrimp and mussels. It's a delight that reflects the influence of the Adriatic Sea on local cuisine.

Old Town Dubrovnik:

Visiting the old town of Dubrovnik in a wheelchair is a unique experience, filled with history and beauty. This city, known as the "Pearl of the Adriatic", offers an unforgettable journey through its cobblestone streets and historical monuments, although its accessibility can sometimes be a bit challenging.

We want to start with the famous and majestic Pile Gate, the main entrance to the old town. Here, the contrast between the ancient walls and the modern wheelchair access sets the tone for our route. Through this gate, we enter the famous main street, Stradun, a paved avenue full of life and activity. Although some sections can be difficult to navigate due to the uneven stones, the experience of being surrounded by historical buildings makes the effort worthwhile.

Continuing our way, we reach Onofrio's Fountain, a popular meeting point and an excellent example of Dubrovnik's Gothic-Renaissance architecture. Here, we take a moment to refresh ourselves and admire the detailed sculptures that adorn the fountain. Despite the cobblestones, the fountain is accessible and offers a well-deserved break.

We proceed to the Franciscan Monastery and the oldest functioning pharmacy in Europe. Its entrance is accessible, allowing us to discover this historical place where history, medicine, and art converge. The monastery's corridors, full of tranquility and beauty, transport us to another time.

From here, we can continue to the Dubrovnik Cathedral, a magnificent example of Baroque architecture. Although access can be challenging, the effort is worth it. Inside, we find impressive works of art and the rich history it houses.

We can stop for a meal at one of the many accessible restaurants, enjoying the delicious local cuisine. Dubrovnik's hospitality becomes evident in how restaurateurs and locals strive to ensure a pleasant experience for everyone.

In the afternoon, we explore some of the less-traveled side streets. Here, we find craft shops, art galleries, and charming corners, offering a more intimate view of life in Dubrovnik. Although some areas are less accessible, the cultural richness and hidden beauty in these streets are worth discovering.

One of the highlights of our tour is a visit to the Sponza Palace. This historic building, with its blend of Gothic and Renaissance styles, is a testament to Dubrovnik's prosperous past. Its interior is accessible and houses an important collection of historical documents, offering a window into the city's past.

As the sunset approaches, we head towards the city walls. Although touring them entirely can be challenging in a wheelchair, there are accessible sections that offer spectacular views of the Adriatic and the city. This moment, with the sun setting over the horizon, is magical and will leave us with unforgettable memories.

Finally, we end our day in Luža Square, a lively social hub where people gather to enjoy the evening. Accessibility here is good, and we join in the joy and bustle of the nightlife, reflecting on the wonders we have experienced throughout the day.
