    Experience Dubrovnik

    With the soothing weather, tropical-like nature and an abundance of medieval historic sights, Dubrovnik easily escapes from description. Once you feel you have it, one more image, one more thought comes to your mind. The absorbing history of the place adds a hint of a mystery and romance. Get yourself lost in Dubrovnik old town, spend a day at the rocky seashore with crystal blue Adriatic waters, so welcoming to plunge into, and take in the atmosphere of this Mediterranean pearl.The city's history dates back to the 7th century when the first settlements were founded on the rocky island. There are, however, new theories claiming that the city may have originated before the Common Era. During the Middle Ages, the city, known as the Republic Ragusa, saw years of wealth and development. Ragusa had one of the largest merchant fleets and was able to stay independent from the powerful Venice and Ottoman Empire.

    The city is home to plentiful monumental historic sights. The old town of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO world heritage site, is a myriad of little cobbled streets. As you walk in though the impressive 'Pile Gate' you are stricken by the glistening cobblestones of the main street Stradum. The sight brings in the thoughts of all these people who had polished the stones by walking by for centuries. Stradum is the most popular spot in the city with countless restaurants, cafes and souvenir shops. It opens with the imposing Onofrio's Fountain and continues with tiny adjacent streets, creating a medieval labyrinth. With architectural pearls such as the Franciscan Monastery or the Rector's Palace, the old town takes you on the trip to the beautiful past times.

    Having been the Game of Thrones filming location, Dubrovnik has learnt how to appeal to a broader audience with the popular show sightseeing tours. The walls of the old town, almost 1.5 miles long, hide fascinating sites and provide stunning views over the tiny streets, red roofs, and the Adriatic. The historic town is secured by two forts, Min�eta in the north and Bokar in the south.The city is also a good point for day trips, hence, a car hire would be your best option for travelling. Visit Montenegro with its captivating towns of Budva, Kotor or Tivat. Drive through the mountains to Bosnia and Herzegovina and learn about the history of the country in the city of Mostar or Trebinje.
