Dubrovnik, Croatia's Old Town is stunning at night. Here are our favourite photos from a nighttime walk through the walled city.After spending a fabulous day in Bosnia Herzegovina, Andrew and I wanted to explore the city we came to visit – Dubrovnik, Croatia. We discovered the best time for a stroll through Dubrovnik’s Old Town is at night.

Our first real opportunity to wander the streets of Dubrovnik was in the evening. The Old Town is beautifully lit at night and, being off-season, we were virtually alone, on the winding little streets and alleys.

We followed some of the city’s many cats through archways and up and down stairways. We strolled past churches and shops closed up tight for the night. We even spent a blustery few minutes trying not to get blown into the sea.

Here are a few of the scenes we saw:

The beautiful Luza square is the end of Dubrovnik’s main street, Stradun. There you will find the Church of St. Blaise, named for Dubrovnik’s patron saint.

You will also find Sponza Palace, which was once a bank, treasury, mint and customs office.

Beside Sponza Palace is the magnificent clock and bell tower that marks the entrance gate to the harbour.

Wandering through the back alleyways, you can’t help be drawn in by the arches and doorways…
