Croatia is a predominately Roman Catholic country with a conservative and traditional culture. But the city of Dubrovnik is a major tourist destination and a popular spot for cruise ships and, as such, offers a more progressive and LGBTQ+-friendly atmosphere. “The Pearl of the Adriatic” offers beautiful scenery and plenty of luxurious accommodations.

 

Though the city boasts a welcoming atmosphere, there’s no specific gay scene to take part in. You won’t find LGBTQ+ clubs here, but there are plenty of places the community likes to mingle. The Troubadour Jazz Café is a local hot spot for all those who are gay, straight and in between. It offers live music and some incredible food. The Pucic Palace offers a great place to stay in the heart of Gundulic Square, while the Hotel Dubrovnik Palace is a wonderful alternative that offers the premiere luxury the city is famous for. Both are LGBTQ+-friendly establishments.

 

Dubrovnik is probably best known at this time for being the filming location for Game of Thrones. As such, it offers a unique opportunity to visit the walled city that was King’s Landing. Walking the perimeter walls of the city is a favorite pastime among visitors, and also provides easy access to some of the city’s greatest beaches. Banje Beach on the south side of town is the most popular and crowded, while Sveti Jacob Beach is great for those seeking something a little quieter. Other must-see spots in the city include the Dubrovnik Synagogue, a work of art dating back to the 14th century, and the Banac Mansion Contemporary Art Museum.

 

While Dubrovnik doesn’t offer a spectacular LGBTQ+ scene, it’s sheer beauty and welcoming locales make it a perfect weekend getaway for anyone in the community.

Review: Norton Simon Museum

Pasadena, California, is home to plenty of places to experience great art, but none so impressive as Norton Simon Museum.
