The beautiful city of Dubrovnic in Croatia can only be described as enchanting and indeed very special. The city is surrounded by a sumptously constructed curtain of walls, cradling the baroque style buildings and marble streets. Dubrovnic is a city steeped in history and is situated on the most beautiful part of the Adriatic coast. George Bernard Shaw once commented that Dubrovnic was 'heaven on earth'.
Dubrovnik City WallsThese impressive city walls were laid out in the 13th century and took almost two centuries to complete. They are the city's main attraction and among the finest in the world. Views from the top of the wall across the city and out to sea are breathtaking.
Dubrovnik Cable CarThe cable car runs to the top of Mount Srd where the views from the top are breathtaking. You can see the old town of Dubrovnic, the crystal clear Adriatic sea and its surrounding islands. It was built in 1969 and is one of the city's most popular attractions.
Sponza PalaceThe Sponza Palace is one of the most beautiful in Dubrovnic. Built between 1516 and 1521 and now houses the city archives and a permanent memorial exhibition dedicated to citizens who lost their lives during the war between 1991 and 1995.
