Old City of Dubrovnik

The city of Dubrovnik is situated on the Croatian Dalmatian Coast and is fondly referred to as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’. It rose to fame as an important Mediterranean Sea power in the 13th century and although it was severely destroyed by an earthquake in 1667, the city was able to preserve its Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque palaces, churches, fountains. Unfortunately, the city was damaged again in 1990 by armed conflict. Today, it is in the process of major restoration that is being spearheaded by the UNESCO.

Attraction in the City

This is a place you would want to visit with your family. It is the kind of place that makes you want to live in Eastern Europe because of its rich history. Apparently, most of Eastern Europe was not affected by the WWII and hence the largely intact heritage.
