Dubrovnik

“Those who seek paradise on earth”,
George Bernard Shaw once wrote, “should come to Dubrovnik”.

The old city of Dubrovnik has remained basically unchanged since the thirteenth century. Its medieval ramparts encircle the city divided in two by the main street – Stradun.

From the Stradun, side streets scamper up the hill toward the ramparts or wind south toward the port. In either direction, the city is alive with open air markets, artisans’ shops and studios of artists, Baroque churches and Gothic-Renaisssance palaces, unexpected courtyards with fluted columns and splashing fountains, and covered loggias in which to sit and watch the world saunter by.

Every visitor to Dubrovnik can discover the unparalleled freedom of a city where no cars are allowed and the stone-faced houses and orange-tiled roofs have not changed for centuries.
