City of Dubrovnik, located in the south of Croatia is certainly one of the most visited holiday destinations in Mediterranean. There are many reasons why a number of satisfied visitors are constantly growing; great cultural heritage and many attractions but its rich history is what makes Dubrovnik the magical city. It’s the quintessential walled city of legend—proud, grand, and ancient. With its signature red and tan clay rooftops and massive stone ramparts framed by the dazzling blue Adriatic, our tour of Dubrovnik is to present Dubrovnik as a real Croatian attraction for visitors who want to see beyond the obvious and explore the architecture and history of the city.
Our discovery begins as we enter the Old Town through the Pile or Ploče Gate (two main entrances in the Old city). Along the way we will visit St. Savior’s, a grandiose Franciscan and Dominican church, we will admire one of the crown jewels of Dubrovnik, Knezev Dvor, the Rector’s Palace, Old Port and visit The Church of St Blasius the patron saint of Dubrovnik, beautiful Sponza Palace which is a mixture of Gothic and Renaissance style, Orlando’s Column and many other interesting sites such as cathedral, churches and city streets squares, monuments, fountains etc. One of the real highlights of our walking tour is the famous Pharmacy at the Franciscan Monastery, which was built in 1317. Inside is a fascinating collection of decorated jars filled with ancient remedies; unique measurement devices, together with alembics and mortars. The Monastery, which also houses a museum with an excellent art collection, took a century to build and was almost completely destroyed in the tragic earthquake of 1667.
