History of Dubrovnik

DUBROVNIK was founded in the 7th century. Town walls 2 km long, which were built in the period from the 11th to the 17th century, surround it. The people from Dubrovnik were famous seamen and tradesmen, and their sailing ships were sailing all around the world. Dubrovnik achieved its peak in the 15th and 16th century, also called the "golden age of Dubrovnik". But in 1667 there was a strong earthquake in Dubrovnik from which the town found recovery very difficult. Dubrovnik was the center of the Republic of Ragusa, which fell with the arrival of Napoleon at the beginning of the 19th century.
