A Taste of Old Town Dubrovnik

Old Town Dubrovnik is located in southern Croatia, and was mostly built between the 11th and 13th centuries to protect the city from war, epidemics, and other outside problems of those days.

The history of the city dates back to the 7th century, when the town known as "Ragusa" was founded by refugees from Epidaurum (Ragusa Vecchia).

Dubrovnik's stone walls were built in the 8th century by the Bynzantine's as a fortress. The walls have been a part of several sieges throughout history, including most recently in 1991 during the Fall of Yugoslavia when it was shelled by Serbian troops aimed at promoting a greater Serbia.

Dubrovnik is nicknamed, "The Pearl of the Adriatic."

Dubrovnik became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979.

The "Walls of Dubrovnik" is a very popular tourist attraction, in which one can walk the perimeter of the city walls for around $17 USD and enjoy an elevated, panoramic view of the Old Town. One can also enjoy restaurants, bars, medievel relics, and other sight-seeing attractions on this excursion.

I enjoyed Old Town Dubrovnik immensely, as I partied with people from all over the world, made new friends, went bar-hoppin' and promoted Outcast Vagabond by handing out my stickers and becoming Facebook friends with people and inviting them to my Travel Page and Travel Group. It really is a unique experience that will give you goosebumps.

The breaktaking views of the Old Town and the Adriatic Sea from the Walls of Dubrovnik will blow your mind. I felt like I was in a Robin Hood movie when I visited, thinking that I was about ready to defend the city from approaching invaders from Prince John.
