After a fantastic week on Brac with lots of sun shine and almost no rain during the day the weather is changing for a couple of days. According to our weather app rain is everywhere in the southern parts of Croatia. That's why we decide to drive down to Dubrovnik. While it is of course much nicer to do a city tour with beautiful weather it's not that bad with a cloudy sky and a few drops of rain.
We find a great mini camp a bit south of Dubrovnik in Mlini. When we left Brac in the morning it was raining a bit. As we arrive here the weather is still great and so we go for a short swim at the nearby beach. We also find a good spot for dinner and discover one of our new favorite wines from Croatia. A Dingac from Matusco.
We arrive in the afternoon in Dubrovnik while the sun is still shining.
We pass by on the main street above the old city.
From here we have a nice view down to the old town.
This is the St. Lawrence Fortress on the northern side of the old town.
Beautiful view across the old and new parts of Dubrovnik.
Mlini is an old and very idyllic fisher settlement.
From our camp site it is only five minutes walking distance down to the old village.

Next morning we take a bot from Mlini directly to Dubrovnik.
It's over cast but that's not so bad for doing a city tour through the narrow streets.
Interesting little fountain.

From up here we get a bit more insight into the different parts of the city.

Waking up the next morning the sky is overcast and we expect rain later in the day. After breakfast we take a little boat from the close by harbor of Mlini directly into the old town of Dubrovnik. There are not that many tourists in town as it seems. Many of the places and restaurants are empty. Seems we are lucky as this is of course a popular stop of the huge cruise ships. We enjoy walking through the narrow streets and Karin takes "hundreds" of pictures. A highlight is certainly the tour on the walls of Dubrovnik. From here we get a pretty good overview of the old part of town and the surrounding buildings such as St. Lawrence Fortress which we visit in the afternoon. At the end of the day we eat a pizza somewhere and take the bus back to our camp site. Great day, lots of walking and the weather was quite ok in the end for this type of sightseeing.
