You just got engaged and you’re now planning your wedding abroad? Well first, congratulations! If you’re on this page, chances are that you did choose Croatia as your wedding destination. As Croatia wedding photographers, we know everything about the country and especially the city of Dubrovnik, the place where we met. So we decided to list the 5 best Dubrovnik wedding venues to help you find the right one for your wedding day in Croatia. Let’s start!
The city of Dubrovnik is located in the extreme south of Croatia. It is by far the most famous city in Croatia (thanks to Game of Thrones) and the favorite tourist destination in the country. If you ever come to Croatia, you have to go to Dubrovnik. Simple as that!
The beautiful city of Dubrovnik is definitely one of the best places for a romantic wedding in Croatia. It is a well-preserved fortified city, one of the most preserved old city cores in the world actually. That’s why the city of Dubrovnik is on the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites since 1979. Its also known as one of the sunniest cities in Europe. Not a bad place to organize your wedding day we would say!
