Dubrovnik is the most-visited city in Croatia and the biggest attraction of the Dalmatian coast. Inscribed on the UNESCO list, surrounded by massive walls, the Old Town hides valuable architectural monuments, and in recent years has also become a destination for fans of the "Game of Thrones" series.
The origins of Dubrovnik are connected with the small town of Lausa existing on a small island, where it anchored merchant ships in ancient times. Over time, a thriving stronghold of Raguza was created here, which in the 12th century was connected to the mainland by erecting an isthmus. It is located in the place where today the most important street of the Old Town, Stradum, runs. It connects the Pile Gate with the main town square and the baroque cathedral of St. Blaise. Since its inception, Dubrovnik has been an important seaport, and fortifications erected successively since the 12th century protected it from attacks both from the land and sea. They remained unconquered until the nineteenth century, and now a walk through the walls of Dubrovnik is one of the main attractions of the city.
Dubrovnik is a picturesque tangle of cobbled streets and squares with stone houses built from the 13th to the 18th century. Many of them have decorated facades and arcaded yards planted with vegetation. You can come across restaurants, cafes, bars and wine bars almost at every step, and the nightlife flourishes in the Old Town until very late. At the back of the city is the Old Port, from which boats and cruise yachts leave today, which can take you to the nearby islands. Fishing picnics with refreshments and the possibility of tasting local drinks are also very popular.
