Dubrovnik was built on maritime trade. In the Middle Ages it became the only city-state in the Adriatic to rival Venice. Supported by it’s wealth and skilled diplomacy, the city achieved a remarkable level of development during the 15th and 16th centuries. Dubrovnik was also one of the centers of the development of the Croatian language and literature, home to many notable poets, playwrights, painters, mathematicians, physicists and other scholars. Even though Dubrovnik sits on the southern tip of Croatia, far from the rest of the country, and just minutes from Montenegro, Dubrovnik is often what comes to mind when people think about Croatia.
