Dubrovnik known as ”the Pearl of Adriatic”. Situated at the southern end of the Croatian coast. Let’s start with a brief historical overview of this unique Croatian jewel. The town established 1.300 years ago by Greek refugees. Was under the control of the Byzantine Empire, Venice until the 14th century. Dubrovnik, known as a “Ragusa”, became an independent republic in 1358 and grew to become Venice’s rival in the Mediterranean. Today Dubrovnik is the most popular tourist destination in Croatia. Listed on UNESCO Heritage List since 1979. After the tour of the old town, you can spend your time in Dubrovnik museums and historic buildings. Dubrovnik Cathedral, the Rector’s Palace, the Franciscan and Dominican Monasteries, Sponza Palace are must-see in Dubrovnik!
Dubrovnik’s most famous feature is its City Walls considered to be the world’s most spectacular! The “city walls” encircle the entire Old Town. It is highly suggested to walk the city walls in the morning, due to heat and high concentration of tourists. No visit to Dubrovnik would be complete without a walk around the spectacular city walls! From the top, the view over the old town and the Adriatic sea is absolutely spectacular. There are entrances to the walls from near the Pile Gate, the Ploče Gate and the Maritime Museum. The Pile Gate entrance tends to be the busiest, so entering from the Ploče side has the added advantage.
