The American GQ magazine reports in its August issue that Dubrovnik is the second-ranked city in Europe on the list of top ten can't-miss destinations in Europe.
Porto, Portugal, tops the list and the Latvian capital of Riga comes third.
They are cited in an article about a a GQ Guide to the Continent's Most Underrated Cities.
"Miraculously, Dubrovnik's history of political tumult and war alchemized a city that feels like vacation. Somehow it's both stunning—all red roofs, white walls, and deep-blue water—and unpretentious. Spend the day drinking Croatian white wine on Stradun, the city's main drag. Wander by foot or by taxi. And no matter where you are in the city, the beach isn't far. To top it off, Dubrovnik is less expensive and less of a scene than the coasts of France or Italy. The only downside: That won't last forever," writes Josh Benson, the author of the Dubrovnik section in this guide.
