Old Town

The pearl of the Adriatic became a great Mediterranean power after the 13th century. This late medieval planned city in the southern part of the east Adriatic Croatian coast with its historical core at the foot of the mountain Srđ has over the centuries preserved the character of a unique urban whole, which is defined by the city walls. It has an important place in the history of urban planning. Although Dubrovnik was badly devastated by the 1667 earthquake, it has managed to preserve its Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries and fountains.
