Walls of Dubrovnik
The city walls surrounding the old town of Dubrovnik are solid walls that originated in the 8th century and have been expanded and reinforced throughout the Middle Ages. The wall, which is 1,940 meters long and up to 25 meters high, is the greatest element of the picturesque cityscape. Aside from its intricate architectural beauty, the stunning view of the Adriatic Sea and the old town with its orange roofs from the top of the wall continues to attract travelers to the area.
Facing the azure Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik's solid medieval walls and orange roofs are still intact. The beautiful cityscape, which preserves the prosperity of the maritime city of the Republic of Ragusa, has been praised as the "Pearl of the Adriatic. After overcoming the civil war of the 1990s, Dubrovnik has regained its former glory and is attracting more and more attention as a major tourist destination in recent years.
