The Owner of 'Appartment Mediterraneo' says about Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik is a historic city on the Adriatic Sea coast in the extreme south of Croatia, positioned at 42°39′N, 18°04′E at the terminal end of the Isthmus of Dubrovnik. It is one of the most prominent tourist resorts, a seaport and the center of the Dubrovnik–Neretva county. Its population was 43,770 in 1991 and 49,728 in 2001. in 2001 the absolute majority of its citizens declared themselves as Croats with 88.39% (2001 census). Dubrovnik is nicknamed 'Pearl of the Adriatic'. The prosperity of the city of Dubrovnik has always been based on maritime trade. In the Middle Ages, as the Republic of Ragusa, 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. Ragusa was one of the centers of the development of the Croatian language and literature, home to many notable poets, playwrights, painters, mathematicians, physicists
The Owner of 'The Sabljić apartment' says about Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik is world-renowned for its cultural and historical attractions, which UNESCO placed on its World Heritage List in 1979. Dubrovnik is in no way a city-museum, rather it is a city full of museums. Culture and tradition have blended perfectly with the times, so that even the knowing eye has trouble distinguishing where one ends and the other begins. It is precisely the cultural heritage of Dubrovnik which has always been inseperable from Europe and the world at large. The economy of our city is based primarily on tourism and associated activities. The suitable climate and the unspoiled natural resources are indeed a privilege for the local population and guests alike.

The Owner of 'HOSTEL OLD TOWN-ROOMS ANA' says about Dubrovnik
The 'Pearl of the Adriatic', situated on the Dalmatian coast, became an important Mediterranean sea power from the 13th century onwards. Although severely damaged by an earthquake in 1667, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. Damaged again in the 1990s by armed conflict, it is now the focus of a major restoration programme co-ordinated by UNESCO

The Owner of 'Dubrovnik Residence' says about Dubrovnik
The Croatian name of the town is derived from the word dubrava , while the Latin name Ragusa - Rausa originated from the name of the island where the first settlement was established ( Lave , Lausa ). Dubr-ovnik was probably founded in the first half of the 7th century, upon the fall of the nearby Epidaurum (today's Cavtat) during the Avaro-Slavic invasion on Dalmatia . Opposite of that location, at the foot of Srd Mount, developed a Croatian settlement under the name of Dubrovnik , after which, in the course of time, the entire town was named. The spatial separation was created by levelling and filling up of the present Placa, where the core of an integrated town developed. From its establishment the town was under the protection of the Byzantine Empire (for a certain period, the Byzantine strategist also resided here); during the Crusades it came under the sovereignty of Venice (1205-1358), and by the Peace Treaty of Zadar in 1358 it became part of the Hungarian-Croatian Kingdom

The Owner of 'Old Town Studio Suites' says about Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik has a remarkable history. An independent, merchant republic for 700 years (abolished by Napoleon in 1806).
The old town was completed in the 13th century and remains virtually unchanged to the present day. Tall ramparts surround it and there are only two entrances to the old town which lead to the Stradun, the city's promenade. One of the greatest pleasures for many visitors is to have a drink in one of the nearby cafes and watch the world go by, as well as viewing the wealth of history this town has to offer. We can't forget the beautiful beaches and swimming spots the town has to offer onthe crystal clear Adriatic Sea.
