People tend to be drawn to fortress towns, and Croatia’s Dubrovnik is no exception. Once you step inside the gate, you’ll see why: this place is beautifully preserved, and it feels something like a fairytale. Dubrovnik’s Old Town has a 2000-year-old history, and you’ll learn some of it while you’re walking the cobblestoned alleyways. For example, did you know that the city abolished slavery in 1416, 400 years before the British Empire?
Start out at Dubrovnik’s Big Onofrio’s fountain, a city landmark. Move on to the main square, where your guide can point out the city’s secular and religious architecture, like the gorgeous Sponza Palace or the baroque church of St. Blasius. Take a look inside the Rector’s Palace, and learn about the city’s unique government and diplomacy. You’ll also learn about Dubrovnik’s violent war history, and its eight-month long siege during the Yugoslavian War.
