Dalmatia - Dubrovnik

Heaven on Earth

Walls are built to protect treasures, and in Dubrovnik this is particularly accurate, with 1,940 metres of stone surrounding one

of the world’s most beautiful cities. As George Bernard Shaw stated: “If you want to see heaven on Earth, come to Dubrovnik”.

 

 “The Pearl of the Adriatic” has captivated and seduced kings and artists for centuries with its immaculate medieval

architecture. How will it inspire you?
