DUBROVNIK, Old City - World Heritage Sites in Croatia
Dubrovnik - Pearl of the Adriatic 
Dubrovnik is a Croatian city on the Adriatic Sea coast in the extreme south of Dalmatia. It is one of the most prominent tourist destinations on the Adriatic. In 1979, the old city of Dubrovnik, which includes a substantial portion of the old walls of Dubrovnik, joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.  

The prosperity of the city of Dubrovnik has always been based on maritime trade. In the Middle Ages, as the Republic of Ragusa, also known as the fifth Maritime Republic (together with Amalfi, Pisa, Genoa and Venice), it became the only eastern Adriatic city-state to rival Venice. Supported by its wealth and skilled diplomacy, the city achieved a remarkable level of development, particularly during the 15th and 16th centuries. Although severely damaged by an earthquake in 1667, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains.

The Walls of Dubrovnik
The Walls of Dubrovnik are a series of defensive stone walls that have surrounded and protected citizens of the afterward proclaimed maritime city-state of Dubrovnik (Ragusa), since the city's founding prior to the 7th century. With numerous additions and modifications throughout their history, they have been considered to be amongst the great fortification systems of the Middle Ages, as they were never breached by hostile army during this time period. Today's intact city walls, constructed mainly during the 12th–17th centuries, mostly a double line, have long been a source of pride for Dubrovnik.    

The walls run an uninterrupted course of approximately 2000 metres  in length, encircling most of the old city. This complex structure, amongst the largest and most complete in Europe, protected the freedom and safety of a "civilised" and "sophisticated" republic that flourished in peace and prosperity for five centuries.
