Despite a turbulent
history during which it has been occupied and
conquered by a succession of its neighbours and
European colonial powers, Dubrovnik is now a town
at peace, allowing visitors to make the most of
its rich vegetation, beautiful lakes, white pebble
beaches and crystal-clear sea.
Political upheaval has
seldom kept tourists away from this uniquely lovely
Adriatic port city; for centuries it has drawn
those seeking fine accommodations, excellent cuisine,
beautiful surroundings and recreational opportunities.
George Bernard Shaw is quoted as describing Dubrovnik
as 'heaven on earth'. The old town, dating from
the 7th century, is on Unesco's list of World
Enclosed by city walls
built in the 12th century, the buildings of the
town represent a cross-section of medieval architectural
styles and remain well preserved. The centre of
the town is the Stradun, its main street, which
was originally a channel separating an island
from the mainland, and was filled in to join two
opposite towns into the merged city of Dubrovnik.
The main tourist area
lies southeast of the old town at Ploce, where
most hotels and the best beaches can be found.
There are numerous churches, monasteries and museums
to explore and the coastal belt is awash with
marinas, piers and promenades.
