Dubrovnik recently nabbed the AFAR Travelers’ Choice Awards destination for Cultural Capital—and for good reason. Perched above the cerulean waters of the Adriatic Sea, Croatia’s coastal stunner is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Meandering limestone streets lined with red-roofed houses welcome visitors with a laidback, unhurried attitude. There aren’t many places where you truly feel like you’ve stepped back into an ancient kingdom, but Dubrovnik’s Old Town will give you just that feeling.
For a glimpse of the amazing natural and manmade wonders that await you in Dubrovnik, we sent AFAR ambassador Charissa Fay to explore the Dalmation Coast along with the perfect travel companion: the Nikon Z 7, ready to capture the spirit of a place thanks to its portable, lightweight mirrorless design. Check out Charissa's photo journey along with tips on how to capture similar shots on your next trip:
