Views over Dubrovnik Old Town

Jutting out into the Adriatic Sea with a backdrop of rugged limestone mountains, Dubrovnik Old Town is known as one of the world's finest and most perfectly preserved medieval cities in the world. For centuries, Dubrovnik rivalled Venice as a trading port, with its huge sturdy stone walls, built between the 11th and 17th centuries, affording protection to this former city-state. Today, these walls still enclose Dubrovnik's historic centre and it is possible to walk along them to enjoy the best views of the 'Pearl of the Adriatic' and the surrounding lush green islands. Welcome!
