Dubrovnik is an old, Croatian city with a population of 42 600 people that represents one of the most remarkable touristic destinations from the Adriatic Sea and the centre of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. Its original name was Raguza but it changed to Dubrovnic in 1918. This city has been included on the list of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites and it recovered quickly and impressively from the earthquake that severely damaged the entire territory and from the war in 1990.
This location is extremely special where the mountains meet the sea and they create a unique union between water and earth. The city is often called “the Pearl of the Adriatic” because of the complexity of beautiful places that it owns and the rich culture that endured so many years, since the 7th century. This location is extremely accessible and it includes both affordable and luxurious places. However, there are a few cultural and historical values and monuments that are priceless. The infinitely beautiful places that share a medieval shade of brick-red, the old buildings and the streets inspire anyone who steps into the city. Dubrovnik has kept its Gothic architecture, its Renaissance art and its Baroque churches, palaces and various monuments and monasteries.
The fortifications that were built here centuries ago are still standing tall and are open to the public to visit. On the South-Eastern side of Dubrovnik, there is an island called the island of Lokrum that hosts a monastery that was built in the Gothic-Renaissance style in the 19th century. This island hides beautiful, rare places and a rough beauty of the nature which attracts those who have a taste for the unknown. This well preserved city offers its devoted tourists the most attractive objective and some entertainment, too. Some of the most popular sights are the city walls with forts, the Lovrjenac Fort, the Stradun promenade, the numerous churches, the Marin Drzic Sqaure, the village named Trsteno, the Elafite islands, the Srd panorama and museum, the Lazaretto, which used to be an isolation hospital and the old city harbour. The regular streets are also very interesting, so a long walk is always welcome amid the old buildings.
The old town offers a strange sensation when visiting because of the heavy walls that were built around it and the similar roofs of the houses which can be clearly seen from the distance. The small marina is located in the old city and allows tourists to sail and travel to the nearby places.
In Dubrovnik, not only the heritage is extremely rich, but the nightlife and the entertainment are surprisingly developed for such a cultural city. The most popular bars and nightclubs in the city are meant to bring a glimpse of relaxation and a feeling of wellbeing in the hearts of the travellers. Hemingway. Troubadour Hard Jazz Café, Buza, the Irish pubs and the nice cafes in the old city are some of the entertaining places where tourists can spend their evenings and nights.
The accommodation and restaurants offers range from luxurious to affordable, but every place in this distinguished city is filled with history and culture.
