Dubrovnik city walls

Dubrovnik is best known for its distinctive Old Town entirely surrounded by the Walls of Dubrovnik. The walls are 1.940 meters long with six fortresses (Lovrijenac, Revelin, Minčeta, Bokar, St John and St Lucas).

No one is indifferent to the sight of the City Walls’ complex system of towers, forts, bastions, and casemates. Thousands of tourists every year visit this attraction. You should not miss the opportunity to walk up and down the walls and feel the history that lasts for centuries.

Another reason to tour the walls are the views. Amazing, stunning, outstanding views. Main street, well-organized side streets intersecting perfectly with one another, terracotta rooftops, churches, towers, houses and buildings from the Middle Age. They take you back to the long Ragusa history.

Explore the town, see it from every angle, learn about its legends hiding beneath every stone, take a tour with a local guide and truly feel Dubrovnik’s history.
Discover why Ragusa was independent for a long time and how it defended its freedom. The main Republic’s motto was: Non bene pro toto libertas venditur auro, which means: Liberty is not to be sold for all of the world’s gold. Dubrovnik remained almost intact for centuries, until 30 years ago, when some of the worst atrocities were committed against the civilians. Discover why is Dubrovnik included in the UNESCO World Heritage List and enjoy the “Pearl of the Adriatic” to the fullest.

The tour will take you on a journey from Dubrovnik’s earliest days to the Republic’s fall and different influences it came under, and learn how Dubrovnik has been shaped into the city it is today.
