Since Croatia and its capital Zagreb are on a unique spot in Europe at the junction of Central Europe, the Balkans and Mediterranean, tourism is one of the vital sources of income for the country and touristic activities concentrate mainly on the coasts of the Adriatic Sea. The country is visited by 10 millions of tourists on average per year. The official currency of Croatia is called "Kuna".
Formerly known as Ragusa, Dubrovnik is a medieval city on the Adriatic coast recognised among the top ten medieval walled towns in the world. Although Dubrovnik was declared an open city in 1971 to be protected against the war, the city underwent a siege upon the collapse of Yugoslavia in 1991 and the town was greatly damaged due to bombardment. After the completion of the renovations in 2005, it regained its former beauty to a great extent. Famous Irish playwright George Bernard Show has called Dubrovnik "the Pearl of the Adriatic" and said that "those who wish to see the heaven on earth must come and see Dubrovnik." In the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1979, the Old Town has a unique historical character with it churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains from the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque eras. Dubrovnik is one of the most elegant and beautiful Mediterranean cities and Croatia is the heart and soul of tourism. Tourists who visit the Old Town are usually touched and impressed by the atmosphere in this huge open air museum that has survived until today where they can also notice interesting historical details remaining from the commercial and political relations with the Ottoman Empire and Venice. The clear sea, citrus gardens, olive groves and vineyards are nourished by the generous nature in and around Dubrovnik. Once pursuing a wish to become an independent republic, Dubrovnik promises an excellent historical holiday experience with its great monasteries, historical fountains, cathedrals, churches and the very first pharmacy in entire Europe. The Konavle region situated in the south of Dubrovnik is famous for the local food, small villages, historical mills, restaurants, and the folkloric dance called Lindo. Cavtat is the centre of Konavle and a tourist attraction with its large hotels, beautiful beaches, cafés and restaurants as well as a regular stop-by for mega yachts with its marina. The Rector’s Palace, the Lady Cavtat Church and the French Monastery will definitely impress history enthusiasts.
