Dubrovnik , Croatia




Dubrovnik (also Ragusa, official name until 1909) is a historic city on the Adriatic Sea coast in the extreme south of Croatia, positioned at the terminal end of the Isthmus of Dubrovnik. It is one of the most prominent tourist destinations on the Adriatic, a seaport and the centre of Dubrovnik-Neretva county.Since 1979, the historic centre of Dubrovnik has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.The modern name of the city is derived from the Slavic word dubrava (meaning forest). In Croatian, the city is known as Dubrovnik and in Dalmatian, Latin, Italian, and formerly in English as Ragusa. However, today more and more Italian sources use name Dubrovnik instead of Ragusa.-Wikipedia-
