Attractions and places to visit in Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is the southernmost city in Croatia, and is a storied place filled with history. It is a walled city, a seaport, which dates back to the 13th century. It is one of the most visited destinations in Croatia, and indeed one of the most visited places on the Adriatic coast. Until 1909, the city was called Ragusa. This is a great example of a true medieval city.
