Welcome to the beautiful port town of Dubrovnik, nestled on the Dalmatian Coast. Renowned for its marvelous Old Town, this Croatian city has become one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean Sea. From here you can experience architectural wonders, historical sights, fantastic cuisine as well as diving into the inviting Adriatic Sea.
Rich in historyHistorical records indicate that the city was founded in the 7th century, and has since then seen both prosperous and tumultuous times. In 1979 the city joined the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list. After the independence of Croatia in 1991 the city was besieged for 7 months, where heavy artillery strikes damaged close to half of the buildings in the Old Town and killing hundreds of its citizens. After the siege and artillery attacks ended, Dubrovnik’s Old Town was repaired adhering to UNESCO guidelines.
As you walk through the Old Town you’ll find shops, restaurants, cafes and galleries seemingly around every corner.
