What should you visit?

  • Explore the old town - The old part of the city of Dubrovnik is in the heart of the city and the main meeting place of the locals. It was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979 and has since become a favorite summer destination for tourists from all over the world.
  • A walk through the city walls - It is clear to you that you must not miss this during your stay in Dubrovnik, because the city walls are, we can say, a real symbol of this city. The walls were built continuously for seven centuries, until 1660, when the last fortress was built, the bastion of St. Stephen. There are a total of 16 fortresses, but the most prominent ones are located on each of the 4 main points of the walls - Minceta Fortress, Revelin Fortress, St. Ivana and the most famous, the Lovrijenac fortress
  • Take the Dubrovnik cable car to the hill Srđ - The Srđ cable car was built back in 1969 and connected the settlement of Ploče with the hill and was the first and only cable car on the Adriatic coast at that time. During the civil war in Croatia, it was completely destroyed and in 2010 it was rebuilt and put back into function. The drive to Srđ takes about 4 minutes and once you get up, you will have the most spectacular panoramic view of Dubrovnik.

Dubrovnik highlights

Given that the whole world is currently struggling with the Covid-19 pandemic, it is worth mentioning Lazarete as a curiosity of Dubrovnik.
Lazareti were built as one of the preventive health protection measures for the inhabitants of Dubrovnik during the Dubrovnik Republic.

Since Dubrovnik was an important port city and received travelers from all over the world, on July 27, 1377, the Grand Council of the Republic of Dubrovnik passed a decision introducing quarantine for the first time in the world as a measure to protect against the introduction and spread of infectious diseases, especially plague. . This decision was published in the so-called Green Paper (Liber viridis) entitled Veniens de locis pestiferis non intret Ragusium nel districtum (Whoever comes from the infected areas, let him not enter Dubrovnik or its territory).

You can see the infirmaries on a tour of the fortresses -  Minceta Fortress, Revelin Fortress, St. Ivana and the most famous, the Lovrijenac fortress.

We have to tell you another interesting thing, and it refers to Stradun Street.

Stradun or Placa, as the people of Dubrovnik call it, is the main street in Dubrovnik, more precisely in its old town. The name Stradun comes from the Venetians, who mocked the length of the street because it is the name for a long street, and Placa from the Latin word 'platea' which means street.

stradun

The whole street is paved with stone blocks, so polished that they shine like parquet, which can be ticklish during rains or in winter when it gets cold. In addition to the two gates at its beginning and end, there are also two fountains, the Great and Small Onofrio's Fountain, and two bell towers, the City Bell Tower and the bell tower of the Franciscan church and monastery.

Today's appearance of Stradun was given after the catastrophic earthquake in 1667 when the whole city was destroyed. After that earthquake, the city authorities determined by statute the manner of construction of residential buildings on Stradun. The ground floor was always reserved for ‘business’ space, the first floor for residential, and the bedrooms were located on the second floor. Interestingly, the kitchen and other utility rooms were located in the attic. After the earthquake, a large fire broke out which destroyed a large number of buildings and the city authorities by the same Ordinance ordered the kitchens to be moved to the attics, in order to prevent the spread of the fire.

However, we will not reveal all the details, it is best to visit Dubrovnik and see for yourself.
