Listed as one of UNESCO's world heritage sites, Dubrovnik's beauty is the ambassador for Croatia. It's the picture of terracotta coloured roofs on the peninsular that features on every travel advert, luring you to Croatia, the breathtaking scenery of which its visitors delightfully describe to you.
Having been mostly built up during the 15th and 16th century, Dubrovnik became a wealthy city due to Maritime trade.
Although Dubrovnik is one of the best preserved medieval walled cities in the world, it has not escaped history unscathed and sadly suffered severe damage from shelling after the break up of Yugoslavia.
27 miles nw of the border with Montenegro, a nice destination for one way trips from, for example, Split.
Although it is required to go to the commercial marina Gruz to check in from international waters, the ACI Marina Dubrovnik with 475 berths is 2nm NNE of the town.
