City of Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik as the symbol of the white stone beauty is now known as the Pearl of the Adriatic. It has retained the medieval walls so perfectly and that is the reason why Dubrovnik is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979. The City of Dubrovnik is completely surrounded with defensive walls and forts including the Old Port in length of 1940 meters ( 6365 feet ).

The walls were built systematically during the centuries in times when a danger of foreign attacks lured over the Dubrovnik Republic and the City. The walls are still functional today thanks to Dubrovnik citizens who maintained them and built upon them when it was necessary and Dubrovnik diplomacy who was able to obviate the enemy threats to the Republic.
