View of Old Town City of Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean Sea, a seaport on the Dalmation coast. In 1979, the city of Dubrovnik joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
Although Dubrovnik was demilitarised in the 1970s to protect it in case of war, in 1991, after the breakup of Yugoslavia, it was besieged by the Serb and Montenegrin soldiers gathered in the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA) for seven months and suffered significant damage from shelling.
After the war all damage was repaired in original style.
