DUBROVNIK TOURIST BOARDPosted on July 25th, 2018 in Blog, News
Lord Byron came to Dubrovnik on his way to Greece and called it the Pearl of the Adriatic as early as the beginning of the 19th century while George Bernard Shaw said, „those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik“. It can be said that these two historical marketing messages have marked Dubrovnik’s tourism over the years since, putting Dubrovnik on the world tourist map and urging travellers to come see this chiselled Mediterranean urban treasure for themselves. History is alive in every part of this city- it represents a perfect cross between the past and the present. Every nook and cranny of this Pearl of the Adriatic, as it is known, hides a treasure. Every building and every monument has its unique value. The historical city is surrounded by monumental wall, 1940 m long, which preserved its original appearance and is open to the visitors as the main attraction of Dubrovnik. Since 1979 Dubrovnik is in UNESCO register as protected World heritage. Dubrovnik is a city for all seasons. Each season in Dubrovnik has its own distinctive charm.

The variety of cultural events on offer lies at the heart of many a visitor’s decision to come and enjoy the unforgettable Dubrovnik evenings to the strains of virtuoso musicianship coming from the atriums of the city’s palazzi all bathing in the moonlight reflected on the still, resplendent patina of the Adriatic. Every summer the polished stone slabs in Stradun show the reflection of world-famous persons. Dubrovnik has been a popular filming location in recent years.
