Dubrovnik, Croatia. Beach view with city in background
This image is of the beach which faces Dubrovnik old town. The beach is full of sunbathers, the water is turquise and still and a boat sits by the shore.
Dubrovnik is a Croatian city on the Adriatic Sea, in the region of Dalmatia. It is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean Sea, a seaport. Its total population is 42,615 and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The prosperity of the city was historically based on maritime trade; as the capital of the maritime Republic of Ragusa, it achieved a high level of development, particularly during the 15th and 16th centuries, as it became notable for its wealth and skilled diplomacy
