Online Event: City Tour: The Best Of Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, also known as ""The Pearl of the Adriatic"", is a perfectly preserved medieval city with huge sturdy stone walls built between the 11th and 17th centuries for protection and that back in those years, it used to rival Venice as a trading port.


On this live virtual tour, you will take a stroll down the quaint narrow streets of Dubrovnik’s picturesque Old Town through its impressive surroundings while hearing its tales and history that only a local professional tour guide can tell.
