Five things you won’t find in a Dubrovnik tourist guide
Not as easy as it looks - On a section of the wall of the Mala Braća church a stone protrudes out, in fact it is a gargoyle. The expert challenge is to climb onto the protrusion and try and take your T-shirt off.
Why run when you can walk - It’s like taking a social stroll; you never know who you’ll bump into and who you’ll end up sitting and having a coffee with, the locals can it a “đir” or Gir in English.
Messing around in the water – it’s called Picigin the idea is to keep the ball in the air as long as you can, great fun, but harder than it looks.
High noon feeding time – at exactly midday the pigeons are feed on Gundulić Square in the heart of the Old City. Great photo opportunities, but mind the flapping wings.
Be a cave man...or woman – the Betina cave is a secluded beach that can only be reached from the sea. Take a kayak or, if you are a good swimmer, under your own steam. It is located between two beaches, Banje and St. Jacob.
