The vista of the OLD CITY OF DUBROVNIK is one of the best-known panoramas of Croatia and of the whole of the Mediterranean area. Indeed, the first sentence of the description of Dubrovnik in the UNESCO List of World Cultural Heritage begins with words: “Pearl of the Adriatic on the Dalmatian coast...”, for few are the cities which enjoy such a wonderful position on a rocky shoreline above the sea, and few are the places where Medieval stone walls and fortresses are so well preserved. The area of Dubrovnik underwent a quite distinct historical development, for it was here, in the period between the 13th and 18th ct., that Croatian culture and art flourished, while the remainder of Dalmatia was under foreign rule. It reached its zenith in the 16th ct. when the power of the famous Dubrovnik Republic was at its mightiest. It would be remiss of us not to make mention of the Elafiti islands which spread out before Dubrovnik, with their enchanting summer houses and castles. Most of them are located on the island of Šipan.
