Croatia was not a country on my bucket list or even a country I knew anything about. It was simply a stop on the itinerary of the Spirit (Norwegian Cruise Line). I was pleasantly surprised with this visit to Dubrovnik. It is a very unique little walled city where cars are not allowed. It is fortified by a wall around the city.
You can walk the wall if you so desire. We took a bus from the port to the entrance of the city. The bus was provided by the cruise line. We shopped at an outdoor market while we waited for the bus. Once at the city entrance, we walked through the city looking through churches and shops. We sampled the Gelato but I was not impressed with the Gelato here. In my ever-so-humble opinion, it was the worst we tried on the whole Europe vacation. The city had a very quaint atmosphere. We stopped at a pub on the top of the city where you can eat and look out over the ocean. Amazing views!
This was a very nice stop in our itinerary. One of the downsides to this stop was the lack of public restrooms. The only public restrooms we could find were outside the city walls and cost one Euro per person to use. We found this was a common-practice in many areas of Europe. It is hard to find a public restroom and when you do, there is a fee to use them.
There were as many dogs as people in this little city. Almost every resident we way was walking a dog. It was a considerable amount of walking. When we were ready to leave, buses were waiting to take us back to the port.
Montenegro is not a country I have ever even heard of. There was not a lot of things available to do in this port. We ended up walking into town and doing some shopping and then we found a game room where we hung out and played video games and some pool. It was a very pretty area with some beautiful mountain views.
