Island near Dubrovnik

Rezervat Lokrum ~ Island near Dubrovnik

Still not got over Dubrovnik & Kings Landing? You got to check out the small beautiful island of Lokrum, a boat away from the main Dubrovnik Town of Croatia!

You can see many ocean cruise liners–very fascinating!! There are small islands surrounding Dubrovnik City (one such famous island called ‘Dobro Dosli’). They connect this island with a boat from Dubrovnik Old Town. You will be happy by keeping your first step onto the island. Lots to explore!! Peacocks, ancient structures, a natural swimming pool, and the ocean of course for your swim! The Bell Tower and flower gardens are also a thing! But, the best part is their food!

Nature Reserve Island of Lokrum

The island is a nature reserve! Someone has also shot here part of GOT & is open to the public! The entry ticket to this Island-Park is within the Boat Ride Ticket. You ride on the Adriatic Sea (one of the popular seas around the Mediterranean!). With a wide eye, you notice several cruise ships that are anchored at a deeper sea level, a few kilometres off the shore of mainland Dubrovnik. It certainly feels like a paradise!

Next Stop: 2nd Part of the Island (Lokrum)

How about soaking under the sun? Dubrovnik has excellent weather as it is off the Mediterranean coast. You can even roam around in a bikini and no one will say anything. I am not joking! What views! If you need a guide, you can always look them up on Toursbylocals.com.

Food is in variety–you will be a fool if you don’t try out their special Croatian and Mediterranean food! A walk in the forest on the island is a sweet troll to speak to the birds and even peacocks! They will not even leave their place even if you come close to them–can you imagine that?? Cool, right? Now the best part, there is a little surprise to this city. Do you feel that you had seen the small orange houses somewhere on TV–yes? Yes, you are right! You indeed have seen the same and major parts of the Old Town in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” TV series! Kings Landing, the Red Keep, Quarth, was shot in this very city of Dubrovnik! I loved everything!! So why not pay a visit and re-visit and live the GOT life yourself? (By the way, you can have your personal Dubrovnik Old Town tour). And am planning for another trip soon!

Which kingdom do you belong to? Have you had a good look at the GOT Kingdom chart? It is one of the visual souvenirs that you can get your camera on, at the museum on Lokrum, the island near Dubrovnik’s old town.
