Dubrovnik – a city of rich historical and cultural heritage
Dubrovnik is one large cultural and historical monument and it’s often called the Monument City. The old historic town of Dubrovnik is definitely the most attractive part, with more than 1900m of almost intact old city walls, which consist of numerous fortifications, bastions, towers, and separate forts, including Minčeta Tower, recognized as a symbol of liberty of Dubrovnik. Back in the day, those walls served the purpose of protecting the city from invasions, and nowadays they represent a main tourist attraction.
Within those walls you’ll find some of the most beautiful examples of architecture this coastal town has to offer, such as the Sponza Palace, the St. Blaise Church, the Dominican Monastery, Franciscan Monastery, the famous Orlando Column, the Jesuit St. Ignatius Church, the Small and the Big Onofrio’s Fountain, and many other structures and buildings. The majestic architecture of Dubrovnik can best be seen if you take a walk along Placa or Stradun - the main limestone-paved pedestrian street surrounded by tall historic buildings and monuments.
When it comes to cultural heritage, Dubrovnik has a lot to offer. If you happen to visit this amazing city in early February, there’s a good chance you’ll end up celebrating the Festivity of Saint Blaise, the festival which has been held for more than a thousand years. This unique festival was included in the List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO back in 2009, same as the local dialect and the traditional dance called linđo, and klapa multipart singing. Many poets, artists, and scientists found their peace and inspiration right here in this city. Ivan Gundulić, Marin Držić, Vlaho Bukovac, Marin Getaldić, Luka Sorkočević and Ruđer Bošković are only a few of the famous citizens of Dubrovnik.
All of the above mentioned attractions are only a small part of what makes this city so unique and breathtaking. The rich history, the geographic location, the mild climate, numerous architectural treasures, and warm hospitality place Dubrovnik at the very top of tourist destinations, not only in Croatia, but in the whole Mediterranean.
