Dubrovnik is a city in the south of Croatia. It's known as the Pearl of the Adriatic.
From the 14th century to 1808 it was ruled as a free state - Ragusa Republic. It reaches its peak in the 15-16 century when it is one of the largest competitors of Venice and Genoa in trade in the Mediterranean. In 1806, Dubrovnik was captured by the French, and two years later it became part of the Illyrian provinces of France.
The old town of Dubrovnik is extremely well preserved. Surrounded by a wall with a height of up to 25 m, which can be crossed by the whole city, revealing splendid views of the sea and the neighboring islands of Lokrum and Lapad.
You must visit and see Dubrovnik: the Franciscan and Dominican Monasteries, the Princely Palace, the Onofrio Fountain, the Church of Sts. Vlach - the saint's protector of the city, the main street of Stradun, the Mincheta Tower and others.
Interesting is the fact that the Republic of Dubrovnik is the first country to recognize the independence of the United States.
