Dubrovnik, Croatia



Dubrovnik is located on the Adriatic Sea coast in the extreme south of Croatia, positioned at the terminal end of the Isthmus of Dubrovnik. It is one of the most prominent tourist resorts, a seaport and the center of the Dubrovnik-Neretva county.

Nicknamed "Pearl of the Adriatic", Dubrovnik is a beautiful medieval walled city which is over 1,000 years old and virtually untouched by the modern world. The same light-coloured stone can be seen in the marble-paved squares, cobbled streets, tall houses, convents, churches, palaces, fountains and museums. The oldest pharmacy in Europe, located in the Friars Minor monastery is a highlight.
