Municipality of Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik is a Croatian city located on the Adriatic Sea, in the southern part of Dalmatia. With a population of around 50.000 inhabitants, the City is one of the most outstanding tourist destinations in the country. It is also part of the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since 1979, thanks to its impressive defensive walls in Old Town, the characteristic Baroque houses with red roof tops and many Gothic-Renaissance palaces.
Severely damaged by an earthquake in 1667 and again in the 1990 by armed conflict, the city has managed to fully recover and now it can be considered one of the most dynamic cities of Croatia, driving lots of interesting projects and social activities at a local and European level.
