One Day In Croatia

During my seven day Adriatic-Greece cruise from Venice, the Norwegian Jade dropped us off at Dubrovnik, Croatia. Honestly, I actually binged watch the Game of Thrones on the plane ride in anticipation of this visit. I was hooked on the series!

The Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola

For the fans of the Game of Thrones, the staircase leading to this church was in the series.

“On the south side of the Gundulic Square a monumental Baroque staircase leads to the Poljana Ruđera Boškovića (Poljana (Croatian) – Plane; Square) where the Church of St Ignatius and Collegium Ragusinum, Dubrovnik’s reputable Jesuit college, are located. This urban complex many find to be the most representative Baroque example in Dubrovnik and the whole Croatian coast.“— DubrovnikCity.com

It was pretty surreal to be on the exact steps that Cersei took in the GOT series.

Wandering Around The Streets of Dubrovnik

There wasn’t a lot of time, so our group just wandered around the streets and enjoyed some fresh seafood, like oysters and prawns! Delicious!

Visiting Krka National Park

Our group also visited this national park and hiked around to see the majestic waterfalls.

“Krka National Park (Croatian: Nacionalni park Krka) is one of the Croatian national parks, named after the river Krka (ancient Greek: Kyrikos) that it encloses. It is located along the middle-lower course of the Krka River in central Dalmatia, in Šibenik-Knin county, downstream Miljevci area, and just a few kilometers northeast of the city of Šibenik.[1] It was formed to protect the Krka River and is intended primarily for scientific, cultural, educational, recreational, and tourism activities. It is the seventh national park in Croatia and was proclaimed a national park in 1985.“—- Wikipedia

It was a wonderful first visit to this amazing country!

      1. we often drove through somewhere and would think “this looks nice” so would revisit later, for a closer look. I have never cruised, though, although my mother-in-law goes frequently, all over the place.
