Dubrovnik is one of the most attractive cities of Mediterranean, which enchanted its visitors with exceptional beauty and preserved cultural and historical heritage. Its long history is visible on every corner. Diplomatic skills of its aristocratic governments have enabled this small naval trading republic to withstand pressures of much larger and more powerful forces and to protect its most valuable asset, the freedom, for centuries. It was the only city-state on the entire Croatian coast, from the 14th to the 19th century. Today Dubrovnik is among the 10 best medieval walled cities in the world and in 1979, it joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. The city is a living museum and a live stage, and has an ideal connection between its glorious past and the modern days which is visible in extraordinary venues and excellent hotel infrastructure.
