"Pearl of the Adriatic"

Dubrovnik, surrounded by the breathtaking Adriatic Sea, is a hidden gem at the southern tip of Croatia.

The charming Old Town offers beauty, history, shopping, and eating down every alley and around each corner. Today's intact city walls can test your endurance, constructed mainly during the 12th–17th centuries, have long been a source of pride for Dubrovnik. The walls run an uninterrupted course of approximately 6,360 ft in length, encircling most of the old city, and reach a maximum height of about 82 ft. The bulk of the existing walls and fortifications were constructed during the 14th and 15th centuries, but were continually extended and strengthened up until the 17th century.
