Dubrovnik will touch your heart. It is a dream come true – a beautiful ancient city which can only be described as a monumental piece of history. A sense of awe will dawn upon you when you set eyes on the beauty of the old town: its marble streets, baroque buildings and the eternal sparkling of the Adriatic Sea. Luminaries and celebrities have always frequented this ancient city. From Lord Byron, George Bernard Shaw, Agatha Christie to present date state dignitaries and tycoons. You can meet famous people strolling along the streets at any given time of the year.
The story of Dubrovnik begins with the ancient Greeks, continues with the Romans and on to a city state during its golden age – a historic trading link between the Mediterranean and the Balkan states, and beyond. Its fleet of trading vessels was dispatched to Egypt, Syria, Sicily, Spain, France and the Ottoman Empire. Through canny diplomacy and payment of tributes, the city maintained good relations with everyone.
A walk along the ancient city walls that have protected a civilized, sophisticated republic for centuries will make you wonder – what a lifestyle must have flourished here among the stone palaces, Venetian style buildings, bell towers, marble-paved squares, monasteries, and fountains; what smart and capable people were able to protect the city from attacks and destruction by invaders throughout the ages.
The highlights of Dubrovnik are many: the Placa or Stradun, there is simply no other place like it in the world. Placa also contains some of Dubrovnik’s most recognizable landmarks – the Onorfio Fountain, Clock Tower, Orlando Column, and the City Walls which completely enclose Dubrovnik.
