More than a thousand years of history have made Dubrovnik a European cultural centre. At the beginning, Dubrovnik was just a small community, but soon the town flourished and become the Seat of the independent Dubrovnik Republic.
The Republic mastered the art of seafaring and had a fleet, which on the south Adriatic could be compared to Venice on the north. History is present everywhere in this town, which is at the same time a museum and a lively stage displaying a mixture of cultural heritage and contemporary life. Every building and every monument has its unique value. Dubrovnik has been under the protection of UNESCO since 1979. The historical city is surrounded by monumental wall, 1940 m long. The City wall preserved its original appearance and is open to the visitors as the main attraction of Dubrovnik.
Please note that the official currency in Croatia is Kuna (HRK).
Dubrovnik climate is mild Mediterranean, mostly warm and dry. The average annual temperature is 18 C and has an average of 2,600 annual sun-hours. Sunless days are very rare. The temperature ever falls below the freezing point, and snowing is an exception.
The most recognizable feature which defines the history of Dubrovnik and gives it its characteristics, are its intact city wall with five fortresses that offer an unforgettable view over the city, the island of Lokrum and the open sea. The City Wall is the main attraction of the visitors.
Dubrovnik is not built in a way to be admired from the car or coach. This is a place for pedestrians. Every spot and hidden corner has its own unique flavour which will make your memory to keep.
