I spent five nights and six days in Dubrovnik last sumer and got to experience pretty much all the highlights. I have to point that however great the city is as a tourist destination, it is not very big and 6 days in Dubrovnik is enough time to cover it if you schedule everything well. I was even left with extra time for a side trip, as you will see below. From an American point of view, Dubrovnik is one of the few places we hear talked about a lot in Croatia. It is a city that has always benefited from its seaside position, with most of its wealth coming from the more than 1 million the giant cruise ships bring into the city every year.
