Dubrovnik History

Dubrovnik History Tour will give you an insight into this exceptional Mediterranean city!

Dubrovnik area in the past was inhabited by Illyrians, Greeks, and Romans according to many historical discoveries. The population started to grow in the 7th century when refugees from a Roman settlement Epidaurus (Cavtat) fled in front of Slavs and Avars and joined the commune on the rocky Island Laus. Slavs came under the hill Srđ and formed a settlement called Dubrava. The channel that was separating these two settlements was closed in the 12th century and the rise of Dubrovnik begin!

The golden age of Dubrovnik was during the time of the Dubrovnik Republic when Dubrovnik was a very rich and powerful independent city-state from 1358-1808. The most cherishable value was Libertas (freedom) and the main motto of the Republic was “Freedom is not sold for all the gold in the world”! 

Dubrovnik was able to preserve its freedom thanks to great diplomacy skills, a large navy fleet, and of course the massive city walls that were protecting the city.

Through witty politics and governing, the city had great economic accomplishments. The geographical position of Dubrovnik and its deals with influential trading countries of that time made it possible. The prosperity endured successfully until the 17th century when a massive earthquake hit the area and killed over 5,000 people. Dubrovnik never fully recovered from this natural catastrophe. It was taken by Napoleon which signified the official fall of the Dubrovnik Republic.

Later in history, Dubrovnik was massively impacted by the War for Independence in, now the former, Yugoslavia. Dubrovnik Old Town was heavily damaged during the conflict. It was soon restored and proudly carries the name “The Pearl of the Adriatic” as a UNESCO World Heritage Site!
