Famous for its more than two kilometres long walls, Dubrovnik is, by many, one of the most beautiful and most popular Mediterranean cities. It is considered that it was founded in the 7th century, although the latest research placed it in the period of the ancient Greeks. The first written mention of Dubrovnik was in the year 850. What is the most significant for Dubrovnik’s history is the fact that Dubrovnik became an independent republic in 1358, when Louis Anjou had asserted to the Dubrovnik Republic all the attributes of statehood. In the year, 1377 in Dubrovnik was built the first quarantine in the world, in which all the travellers that are came to Dubrovnik had to spent some time. Well preserved, high defensive walls surround the Old town. The main street of Stradun is the centre of the city, which is the main gathering place for residents of Dubrovnik and their guests. Numerous entertainers, artists and craftsmen with old crafts tools are gathering on Stradun all day, trying to show visitors how the city looked in the past. On the northern side of the walls is the Minčeta Tower, built in the 15th century by famous Juraj Dalmatinac. St. John’s Fort protected the entrance to the Dubrovnik harbour. On the eastern side of the Walls is the Revelin Tower, built in the 15th century for additional protection of the city. The City gates from Pile were the western entrance to the town with moving bridge that was closed every night. In Dubrovnik, there is a bell tower with a clock that was built in 1444. Nearby, there is also the Rector’s Palace, which was the seat of the government and the residence of the prince of the Republic of Dubrovnik.
Dubrovnik is known worldwide for its beautiful beaches and a refined gastronomy. Every year, more than one million people come to visit and see the beauty of this beautiful old town.
