DUBROVNIK

Dubrovnik is one of the most prominent tourist and conference destinations in the Mediterranean. In 1979, the city of Dubrovnik joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. Unique for its impressive medieval forts, churches, monuments and palaces, Dubrovnik is often called the “pearl of the Adriatic”. George Bernard Shaw, visited the city in 1929 and said: “If you want to see heaven on earth, come to Dubrovnik”. Dubrovnik is among the several best preserved medieval walled cities in the world – its walls run almost 2 km around the city. The system of turrets and towers were intended to protect the city. The walls of Dubrovnik have also been a popular filming site for HBO’s Game Of Thrones and of the new episode of the ‘Star Wars’. Its coastal belt is adorned with several marinas, piers and promenades. Because of a magnificent view on the mediaeval Dubrovnik, a walk along the city walls is exceptional experience. One of the reasons for visiting Dubrovnik besides its profound beauty and historic magic are warm, mild climate and Mediterranean gastronomic delight.
