Unique for its impressive medieval forts, churches, monuments and palaces, Dubrovnik is often called the “pearl of the Adriatic”. George Bernard Shaw, visited the city in 1929 and said: “If you want to see heaven on earth, come to Dubrovnik”. Dubrovnik is among the several best preserved medieval walled cities in the world – its walls run almost 2 km around the city. The system of turrets and towers were intended to protect the city. The walls of Dubrovnik have also been a popular filming site for HBO’s Game Of Thrones and of the new episode of the 'Star Wars'. Its coastal belt is adorned with several marinas, piers and promenades. Because of a magnificent view on the mediaeval Dubrovnik, a walk along the city walls is exceptional experience. One of the reasons for visiting Dubrovnik besides its profound beauty and historic magic are warm, mild climate and Mediterranean gastronomic delight.
