Dubrovnik, a city of unique political and cultural history, of world-famous cultural heritage and beauty (inscribed on the List of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO) - is one of the most attractive and famous cities of the Mediterranean.
Centuries of insight and accord, a simple, charming urban entity, whose integral spirit and concordance are worthy of our deepest admiration. The city at the foot of hill Srd is a highlight of the Adriatic and the whole Croatia.
It's an absorbing city of constant activities and visits to make. Things to see include the city walls, built between the 8th and 16th centuries, a Franciscan monastery with Europe's oldest pharmacy (still working), a
12th-century cathedral; an arsenal built in the 13th century, and a corn depot house (looking like a fortress) that dates back to the 16th century.
But the greatest fascination of the town simply lies in its street life and street appearance, its medieval character, all combined with the rich and colorful vegetation of the Mediterranean region. Here, history, culture, and nature all melt into one harmonic unity.
Apart from its historic atmosphere, Dubrovnik offers a remarkable number of cultural programs (all of them again in operation following the cessation of hostilities involving Croatia) and a full range of sea sports.
