" A city with one face and innumerable mirrors "

A stunning city, the "pearl of the Adriatic" made of stone and light in 1979 became part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located in the extreme south of the Republic of Croatia, the city is like an open palm under the stars, and his history is long and remarkable

Dubrovnik has known initially as Ragusa, the earliest archaeological evidence dates back to the 8th century and from the 13th century onwards became an essential Mediterranean power. It had one of the most developed navies in history, and many forces fought to conquer it. But Dubrovnik managed to keep its freedom with its cultural sights and walls that served to defend the city. After being hit by a great earthquake in 1667 and then a fire that destroyed an outstanding cultural treasure, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. Dubrovnik is a fantastic city, and its beauty will best evoke you and see for yourself. The people of Dubrovnik say - if you haven't walked along Stradun, it's as if you haven't even been here.

Baroque-looking, the most beautiful street in the heart of the old town, 298 m long, connects the east and west gates of the city. You will see many sights from the Sponza Palace, the church of St. Vlaho, the Rector's Palace, to the Franciscan Monastery to the Franciscan Monastery which houses the oldest pharmacy in the world since 1317. And the inevitable Orlando Column, the oldest preserved public sculpture in and one of the most beautiful sights.
The popularity of Stradun, its beauty and cosmopolitan spirit is also evidenced by the fact that in the last few years the world has recognized a location for shooting attractive series and movies such as 'Star Wars' and 'Game of Thrones'
