Dubrovnik

Town

3.4








This city is most famous it's 16th century historic town on the small natural mainland outcrop boasting impressive walls. However the historic town joins the main city which stretches north and south on the mainland and a much larger outcrop to the north. The Dubrovnik marina offers little space for the visiting yachtsman, and most charters are based at Komolac at the base of the nearby river Dubrovacka. If you make your way to Dubrovnik you should make some time for the smart pedestrian street that runs through the centre of the old town which offers churches and palaces including Rector's Palace which is now a museum. Don't miss the drawbridge western entrance to the city or the eastern gate that overlooks the old port.




"Dubrovnik (Croatian: [dǔbroːʋniːk] (listen); historically Ragusa) is a city on the Adriatic Sea in southern Croatia. It is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean Sea, a seaport and the centre of Dubrovnik-Neretva County. Its total population is 42,615 (census 2011). In 1979, the city of Dubrovnik joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites.

The prosperity of the city was historically based on maritime trade; as the capital of the maritime Republic of Ragusa, it achieved a high level of development, particularly during the 15th and 16th centuries, as it became notable for its wealth and skilled diplomacy.

In 1991, after the break-up of Yugoslavia, Dubrovnik was besieged by Serbian and Montenegrin soldiers of the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA) for seven months and suffered significant damage from shelling. After repair and restoration works in the 1990s and early 2000s, Dubrovnik re-emerged as one of the top tourist destinations in the Mediterranean." Wikipedia

Dubrovnik Airport
3.0

The airport is under a lot of construction outside. Inside the new building is a nice extension. There’s very little to do airside, one single cafe selling sandwiches. We headed across the road outside to a tiny roadside cafe and grill which served amazing burgers, salads and other options.

Dubrovnik
5.0

Very pretty and beautiful old town. Some great restaurants. Lots of tourists, almost too many. But still worth a visit.
