At the very south of Croatia a small, but historically very important city and port is located. During the Medieval period Dubrovnik was known as the Republic of Ragusa, hometown to many famous poets, writes, painters and scientists. The most famous street and the city centre – Stradun, was initially a channel formed by an embankment.
If you plan to visit Dubrovnik do not hesitate to take a walk around the medieval City Walls that circle around the whole city. The tower Minčeta, built by the same famous architect who built St. James Cathedral in Šibenik, Juraj Dalmatinac, is located on the north side of the city walls. Other towers and fortresses are Bokar, St. John, Lovrijenac, Revelin and Imperial. The entire city centre is under the protection of UNESCO World Heritage and wherever you go or whatever you see in Dubrovnik is most likely a landmark in its own right from different churches and monasteries to the cathedral and from many palaces to medieval mansions.
Dubrovnik is not just known for its architecture and monuments, but also for its festivals and fairs such as Dubrovnik Summer Games, St. Vlaho Festa, Libertas Film Festival, Dubrovnik International Film Festival and many more.
Croatian people are very proud of their Dubrovnik and its history and want to present it in its all glory not just for the fact that Game of Thrones was filmed there. There is so much to say about this Adriatic Pearl but it is best to see and witness it for yourself!
