On the city walking tour, we are going to discover all the highlights of Dubrovnik's history and find hidden places and back streets. Ragusa, as Dubrovnik was once named, was one of the most important Republics in the world until the time when America was discovered. You will hear a lot of interesting stories while we walk around the Old Port, Cathedral, Quarantine, St. Blasius church, Orlando column, Rector's Palace, a 700-year-old pharmacy, Sponza Palace and much more. I will explain the key elements of the street planning along the walk and the manner in which Ragusa has managed to preserve its independence. You will learn about the sea trading and shipbuilding that have been fundamental to Ragusa's success. Diplomacy of Ragusa is still a subject of investigation in the international universities. You will learn about the 1990s war also during this tour.
