One street in Croatia has made it onto a list of ’25 incredible streets you must visit before you die’ published by leading UK newspaper The Telegraph
Stradun in Dubrovnik has made it on the list of 25 ‘quirky and spectacular streets that everyone must visit in their lifetime’.
No. 3 Stradun, Dubrovnik
Despite the crowds, a walk down Stradun, the main thoroughfare in Dubrovnik’s old town, is a must, especially if you’re a fan of Game of Thrones (it’s where Cersei Lannister takes her walk of penance).
“Most of the top attractions in Dubrovnik are concentrated in the car-free old town, within the medieval walls,” says Jane Foster, Telegraph Travel’s Dubrovnik expert. “Two monumental arched gates, Pile (to the west) and Ploče (to the east), serve as entrances to the old town, and they are joined by the main thoroughfare, Stradun (aka Placa). Off each side of Stradun lies a grid of narrow alleys (some involving steep stone steps), harbouring countless cafés, restaurants and apartments to rent,” – The Telegraph writes.
Dubrovnik’s Stradun, which is currently a filming location for Robin Hood: Origins, was in the company of some of the world’s most iconic streets on the list, such as Champs-Élysées in Paris, Ocean Drive in Miami, New York’s Broadway and Times Square, and La Rambla in Barcelona.
