Visit Dubrovnik

The moment that you catch a glimpse of Dubrovnik from the sky, you know that your visit to this city is going to be a magnificent experience.

According to legend, the city was founded on the need for refugees from a nearby city to have a safe place to live. Recent studies believe that that the city was actually founded by the Greek before the Common Era, but no matter what you believe, there is no denying that the walled city and its surrounding community will take your breath away.

Even more popular now because of the Game of Thrones series, this Mediterranean getaway is calling out for you to visit it. Are you going to listen to its call?

The Walls of Dubrovnik Are an Impressive Sight Indeed

It is not often that you can find massive protective stone walls that are in as great of condition as the Walls of Dubrovnik are. Initially built in the 7th century to coordinate with the city’s founding, the fortifications were added to throughout the centuries with a massive addition included during the Middle Ages. It is one of the few defensive structures that were never breached by an invading army during this time period. Today many of these walls can be toured in the old portion of the city.

As you explore the walls, you’ll notice that the views of the city and the surrounding areas and seascapes are just spectacular. For the best view, make your way along the walls until you reach the sights at Minčeta Tower. From there, you can see the remnants of the surrounding moat and cannons that fortified this “sophisticated” bastion of commerce.

Take a Walk Down Stradun Street

As you make your way down from the walls, you’ll want to enjoy the beauty and simplicity of Stradun Street, which is the primary avenue that runs through Old Town. Don’t worry – it’s a pedestrian street, so there aren’t any vehicles to worry about as your footsteps echo off of the limestone pavement. Many of the historic buildings of this city that you’ll want to view come right up to this street that stretches for 300 meters. You’ll want to make time to view the large Onofrio’s Fountain while there as well.

If you wish to make your way out of the city for awhile, an excellent choice is to visit the oldest arboretum that is still in operation in this part of the world. The Trsteno Arboretum was founded in the 15th century and covers over 60 acres of space with hanging gardens, beautiful monuments, and stone pathways and walls that come right up to the waterfront. Ancient aquaducts still line this area of tranquility too, giving each visitor the chance to enjoy a moment of medieval bliss in this very modern city.

Dubrovnik is the ideal destination for a romantic break for two, with long sweeping beaches that vary from bustling bays to deserted coves. Whether you wish to try some water sports together or find a peaceful spot where you can lap up the privacy, you will find it along this delightful coastline. The Lapad Peninsula is particularly beautiful and home to some stunning untouched beaches.

For many , a holiday to the Dubrovnik Riviera is all about spending time lazing on the sands together, enjoying some relaxation under the sun and swimming in the sea. This is a great starting point for exploring the area, with plenty of boat trips offered, or you can see some unique sights underwater, with a snorkelling or scuba diving excursion.

There are plenty of romantic settings where you can enjoy a candlelit meal for two along the coast, with beachside taverns and bistros providing views across the sea as you dine. If you want to experience the cultural side of the area, Dubrovnik city plays host to some superb musical performances and themed parties.

Are you ready to visit Dubrovnik for yourself? Then be sure to add these items to your itinerary so that you can experience all that this incredible city has to offer. It’s wit and charm have been experienced for centuries – it’s time for you to experience it too.

Dubrovnik, history

Dubrovnik , also lovingly named “pearl of the Adriatic”, is an old city on the Dalmatian coast in the extreme south of Croatia. From the 13th century onwards, Dubrovnik has been an important Mediterranean sea power. In 1667 the city was severely damaged by an earthquake, but it managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. Damaged again in the 1990s by armed conflict, it is now the focus of a major restoration programme co-ordinated by UNESCO.

It was an independent, merchant republic for 700 years (abolished by Napoleon in 1806), it traded with Turkey and India in the East (with a consul in Goa, India) and had trade representatives in Africa (Cape Verde Islands). The city’s wealth was based on maritime trade; in the Middle Ages, it became the only eastern Adriatic city-state to rival Venice. Supported by its wealth and skilled diplomacy, the Latin/Slavic Ragusa/Dubrovnik achieved a remarkable level of development during the 15th and 16th century.  In 1815, by the resolution of Congress of Vienna, Dubrovnik was annexed to Austria (from 1867 on Austria-Hungary), and remained in the Kingdom of Dalmatia until 1918. During that time its official name was ‘Ragusa’. Then it became part of Yugoslavia from 1929 onwards. From April 1941 until September 1943, Dubrovnik was occupied by the Italian army and after that by the Germans.  Despite the 1970s demilitarization of the old town by in an attempt to prevent it from becoming a casualty of war, Following Croatia’s independence in 1991, the Yugoslav People’s Army attacked and surrounded the city on October 1, 1991 and the siege lasted until May 1992. The heaviest artillery attack happened on December 6 with 19 people killed and 60 wounded. Total casualty in the conflict on this area according to the Croatian Red Cross were 114 killed civilians, among them the celebrated poet Milan Milisic . Following the end of the war, a major rebuilding project led by the Croatian authorities and UNESCO began.

The 13th century old town has not  changed much compared to medieval times. Tall ramparts surround it and there are only two entrances to the old town which lead to the Stradun, the city’s promenade with its cosy cafes.. In 1992 considerable damage was caused to the city centre. Local efforts and international aid, however, restored the old town  to its former beauty.
