At Old Town, learn how the "Pearl of the Adriatic" developed as a major Mediterranean power after the 13th century. Dubrovnik, which holds a significant place in the history of city planning, joined the list of World Heritage Sites in 1979. Climb the preserved white-stone defensive walls, with mighty forts and towers. Take in a panoramic view of the crystal clear sea and the countryside. As you wander, you'll pass old residential houses with red roof tops as well as Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque palaces, churches, and fountains.
