  • About Dubrovnik

    DUBROVNIK, a magnificent historic city, founded in the 7th century, traces its roots to the ancient world. It was the only city-state on the entire Croatian coast, from the 14th to the 19th century. Seafaring and trade, together with the wise international policy and skilful diplomacy brought economic and cultural prosperity and centuries of prosperity to that free city–state.The Dubrovnik people were known as good seafarers, tradesmen, scientists and writers. Among others, Dubrovnik gave to Europe the scientists Ruđer Bošković and Marin Getaldić. Of literary men, Marin Držić, Ivan Gundulić and Bartol Kašić should be mentioned for their contribution to the Croatian literature and language, while the poets of the old Dubrovnik wrote the last and perhaps the most brilliant verses in Latin.Dubrovnik reached the pinnacle of its prosperity during the 15th and the 16th century. That period is known as the Golden Age of Dubrovnik. Unfortunately, Dubrovnik suffered a severe blow by the Great Earthquake in 1667, from which it never recovered properly. The Dubrovnik Republic was officially abolished shortly after being occupied by Napoleon’s army at the beginning of the 19th century.Throughout its history, Dubrovnik has been admired for its culture. It was a fruitful point of meeting of the East and the West. A historical city centre with its throbbing life, surrounded by ramparts, abounds in monuments of its rich cultural heritage and magnificent pieces of art and architecture. Seventeen churches and monasteries, one of the oldest synagogues in Europe, its apothecary, quarantine and orphanage are long-standing witnesses of its humanistic spirit and human compassion. The main city street, Placa, of unparalleled placid beauty, has been a lively centre of life and Mediterranean atmosphere to this day.

    Dubrovnik is an expression of love towards life, a harmony between the interior and the exterior, between spirit and beauty, peace and freedom. Living in Dubrovnik is a joy, leaving it is a sorrow.
