More and more people are coming to realise just how much Croatia has to offer as a tourist destination. If you decide to book a holiday to this country to explore its history and try your hand at activities including hiking and sailing, Croatia has many jewels to offer. One of the best of them all is Dubrovnik.
The walled city
Many cities around the world have remnants of ancient walls that once protected them. But in Dubrovnik their ancient walls are still practically intact. The Old Town is held inside a consistent stone wall that runs for some two kilometres. Incredibly the walls reach as high as 25 metres into the air in some places. When you have indulged in other activities such as sailing, Croatia's Dubrovnik offers you the opportunity to follow the length of these famous walls that date from the 14th century.
