Dubrovnik

Croatia

Recommended Hotels

    Dubrovnik is the town in Croatia located on the Adriatic coast with a population of 43 thousand people, formerly known as Ragusa (Italian historical name of the town). Monumental palaces and filigree pattern of the architecture in this open-air museum remind of the times when Dubrovnik was rich republic and fought with the Venetians and the Turkish. The city has been keeping its independence for centuries due to its nimble diplomacy and fast fleet up to 1808 when the Ragusa Republic ceased to exist by the will of Bonaparte. The burst of machine-gun fire couldn’t punch the strong fortification wall with its height of 25 meter and thickness of 6 meters. When climbing it and turning aside of the sparkling blue of the Adriatic, one can see the abundance of red tiled roofs, baroque palaces and medieval side streets. Seeing all this beauty it’s easy to understand why Dubrovnik is designated by UNESCO as the world cultural heritage. Quite chapels, luxurious baroque churches and Venetian architecture are typical for Dubrovnik. The city itself is like an illustration of the European history: the arrival of Napoleon, the Habsburg Empire, the breakup of Yugoslavia and the creation of the independent state.
