The Croatian city of Dubrovnik is known as the Pearl of the Adriatic, and these are the 11 Best Dubrovnik Tours, to help you to understand and appreciate this stunning UNESCO walled city.
Dubrovnik is located on the Dalmatian coast, which has quickly become a hot spot tourist destination. However, the country and the city have not always fared so well. While it was once an important sea power during the 13th century, an earthquake severely damaged the city in 1667. While many of the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains survived relatively intact, they again were under threat in the armed conflict of the 1990’s. Such is the beauty of the city that it has been awarded UNESCO status to help in the restoration of this very charming city.
To get a very good understanding of the city, you are best served by doing a guided tour, with locals who know their history, their culture, and their beautiful city.
