Dubrovnik: Croatia's Fortress City

Posted By Verity Roberts on 01/06/2014

 

Dubrovnik is a wonderful Croatian city with marble streets and baroque buildings, not forgetting the famous, engulfing walls of the Old Town. Here, a warren of narrow alleyways and streets waiting to be explored. Architectural treasures await every turn. But Dubrovnik is not, nor ever has been, a dusty old museum piece. It is instead a lively, fashionable city, inspiring awe and delight in its visitors. Our gallery shows you some of the city's most famous architectural sites through the ages.
