WELCOME TO DUBROVNIK

It is a medieval city on the Croatian side of the Adriatic coastline and a treasure – trove of cultural – historical monument that were created throughout its thousand-year existence.

In the past, it was a City-Republic, and alongside Venice one of the most famous cultural-economic centers on the Mediterranean. In more recent times, it has become the center of modern cultural and tourist events: a city of summer festivals – an international parade of top musical and theatrical achievements, a city of museums and galleries. These values have turned Dubrovnik into a place that offers a rich selection of various experiences and excitement, but also a complete holiday in quiet and calming, mild Mediterranean ambience and wonderful seaside landscapes.

Welcome to Dubrovnik – a city of thousand year old tradition that offers something for everyone.

There are many beautiful places in the world; however, the people of Dubrovnik claim their city to be the most beautiful. The walls of Dubrovnik girdle a perfectly preserved complex of public and private, sacral and secular buildings representing all periods of the City’s history, beginning with its founding in the 7th century. Since 1979 Dubrovnik is in the register of UNESCO as a protected World heritage. Particular mention should be made of the city’s main street in the old historical center – Stradun, Rector’s Palace, St. Blaise’s Church, Cathedral, three large monasteries, Custom’s Office and the City Hall. The Republic of Dubrovnik was the centre of a separate political and territorial entity, and was proud of its culture, its achievements in commerce and especially of its freedom, preserved in the course of the stormy centuries.
