Dubrovnik, the Pearl of the Adriatic, a peninsula surrounded by walls, stone island surrounded by the sea, is a remarkably well preserved example of a fortified medieval town.
The historic core of the city is embedded in the walls of 2 km with 16 rounds in perfect condition; along the walkway you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the city and the sea.
Access to the city is by three monumental gates, particularly well protected; Pile the main door, west side, is topped by a statue of Saint Blaise, the patron of the city.
The old town is bisected by the main street Placa (or Stradun) paved a shiny stone, which divides the city into north and south district. The Stradun is the commercial heart of the city with sidewalk cafes and shops full of life and encounters.
