Above: Old town of Dubrovnik, second left: The Dubrovnik Cathedral, downstairs: "Dubrovnik Thesaurum" (Croatian: Ragusa) is a town on the coast of the river of Adriatic Sea. One of the most famous Mediterranean travel resorts, a sea port and the center of the Dubrovnik-Neretva district.

Dubrovnik was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. Originally, the city's affluence was founded on sea trading; as the capitol of the Ragusa Republic, it reached a high stage of growth, especially in the fifteenth and sixteenth century, when it became known for its riches and qualified political skills.

Ragusa (???????) is the basis for the Epidaurum refugee (Ragusa Vecchia), a Grecian town located about 15 km southern of Ragusa, when it was devastated by the Seventh Congress of Seventh Centies. Its name is declared as corrupt by Lausa, the name of the cliffy isle on which the city was constructed (linked by Constantine to the ancient Greek www.ka.ch "Rock, Stone").

In Antun Ni?eti?, in his 1996 publication Peovijest Kor?ula lauke ("History of the Port of Dubrovnik"), he explains the hypothesis that Dubrovnik was founded by ancient seamen, [citation required] as a half-way stop between the two ancient Greeks Budva and Kor?ula, 95 sea mile ( 176 km; 109 mi) apart.

In the Middle Ages Dubrovnik had a Rom people. After the Crusades, Dubrovnik came under the rule of Venice (1205-1358), which was to transfer its establishments to the city of Dalmatia. When a fire on 16 August 1296 devastated a large part of the city, a new city map was made.

Dubrovnik gained relatively freedom as a minion state of the kingdom of Hungary through the peace treaty of Zadar in 1358. Dubrovnik reigned as a free state between the fourteenth and eighteenth centuries, although it was a Ottoman Empire minion from 1382 to 1804 and tributed its ruler annually.

It culminated in the fifteenth and sixteenth century, when its thesis democracy competed with that of the Venetian Republic and other sea states. Dubrovnik was for hundreds of years an allies of Ancona, the other adult rivals of the Venetian Marine Rep ulic, who was himself the main Ottoman Empire competitor for controlling the Adriatic. One of the most important rivals of the Venetian Empire was Dubrovnik.

From Dubrovnik they went on to Ancona, via Florence and finally to Flanders, as you can see on this chart. In 1301 a health care department was established and the first chemist's shop, which is still in operation today, was opened in 1317.

It was governed by the indigenous nobility, of Mediterranean origin, which constituted two town councillors. At the beginning of the fifteenth millennium, the Czech government eliminated the slavery business and held freedom in high esteem. It has managed to balance its supremacy between the interests of Venice and the Ottoman Empire for hundreds of years.

Human tongues were the Romanesque language of Dalmatia and the Croatian language. Dalmatia gradually began to be replaced from the eleventh centuries among the ordinary residents of Dalmatia. In Dubrovnik, Venetian and German would become important cultural and commercial tongues. Dubrovnik also became the birthplace of Croatian literary life.

Part of the Republic's rich economy was due to the country it had built up, but above all to maritime commerce. Dubrovnik traders traveled free through the country with the help of experienced mechanics and the city had a gigantic flotilla of trading vessels (Argosy) that traveled all over the canoe. Conversos, Jews from Spain and Portugal, were drawn to the city.

One of the most renowned gun and belfryers of his day worked in the town during this time: Dubrovnik already in 1571 was selling his patronage over some Christians in other parts of the Ottoman Empire to France and Venice. There was also a Dubrovnik settlement in Fes in Morocco at that age.

In 1571 the Dubrovnik Archbishop was cardinal defender. 1806 the city gave itself up to the Napoleonic army,[31] because this was the only way to end a one-month besiege by the Russian-Montenegrin fleet (during which 3,000 cannon balls dropped on the city). Napoleon first asked only for the free transit of his army, promised not to conquer the area and emphasized that the French were friendly with Dubrovnik.

However, later, France's armed services blocked the ports and forced the authorities to give in and allow France's army to travel to the city. It was on this date that all the banners and emblems above the city wall were cut off in colour as a token of sorrow. Marshal Auguste de Marmont eliminated the Italian Empire in 1808 and incorporated its territories first into Napoleon's Kingdom of Italy and later into the Illyric Islands province under France's reign.

It was to last until 28 January 1814, when the city yielded to Captain Sir William Hoste, who led a group of English and Austro-Hungarian forces that besieged the town. Later the Senate of the Republic ruled that the Republic's offical tongue should be the Dubrovnik idiom of the Romance Palmatian and banned the use of the Croation word in the Republic's sensationalism.

Combining these two powers - a faulty Habsburg administration system and a new federalism that claimed ethnicality as a foundation bloc for a communion - presented a particularly confusing problem: Dalmatia was a provincial governed by the German-speaking Habsburg Empire, with bi-lingual (Croatian and Italian-speaking) élites dominating the general populace, composed of a Croation Catholics major (and a Slavic Orthodox minority).

1815 the former Dubrovnik government (its aristocratic assembly) last gathered in Ljetnikovac in Moko?ica. Again, extremist steps were taken to restore the republic, but all in vain. What a waste! Most of the Austrian nobility was recognized by the Austrian Empire after the collapse of the Republic.

Baron ?i?mundo Getaldi?-Gunduli? (Sigismondo Ghetaldi-Gondel) (1795-1860) was chosen as mayor of Dubrovnik for 13 years in 1832; the crown of "Baron" was conferred on him by the provincial authorities. Earl Rafael Puci? (Raffaele Pozza), (1828-1890) was first appointed in 1869 to the Dubrovnik Pedestal after being re-elected in 1872, 1875, 1882, 1884, and twice to the Dalmatian Council, 1870, 1876.

In 1882, the Nationalists' triumph in Split had a strong impact on the areas of Kor?ula and Dubrovnik. She was welcomed by the Dubrovnik Rafael Puci? Lord Major (podestà), the Dubrovnik National Reading Club, the Dubrovnik Workers' Association and the magazine "Slovinac"; by the municipalities of Kuna and Orebi?, the latter receiving the Slovak Republic's leadership before Split.

Dubrovnik had a tramway connection from 1910 to 1970. ?ingrija (1837-1921), one of the leader of the People's Party in Dalmatia,[35] starred in the fusion of the People's Party and the Party of Right into a unified Croatian party in 1905. When Austria-Hungary fell in 1918, the city was admitted to the new Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slowenes (later the Kingdom of Yugoslavia).

It became one of the 33 territories of the kingdom. In 1929, when Yugoslavia was split under 9 Banovina, the city became part of Zeta Banovina. 1939 Dubrovnik became part of the new founded Banovina of Croatia. Dubrovnik became part of the Socialist Republic of Croatia and the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia under the Communist regime.

The city was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. Croatia and Slovenia, then Republic of Yugoslavia within the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, proclaimed their sovereignty in 1991. The Socialist Republic of Croatia was re-named the Republic of Croatia at this meeting. In compliance with UNESCO regulations, the repair work was carried out in the pristine condition.

You can see the amount of harm done on a map near the city gates, showing all cannon strikes during the besiege, and is clearly seen from the highlights of the city in the shape of the brighter new canopies. Croatian USAF accident CT-43 in 1996 near Dubrovnik airport near the USAF CT-43 caused the death of everyone in a U.S. Air Force aircraft with the Secretary of Commerce of the United States Ron Brown, the head of the Frankfurt office of the New York Times Nathaniel C. Nash and 33 other persons.

Banje, Dubrovnik's largest open air sandy area, is home to the Eastwest Beach Club. From 1444, the 31 metre high belfry is one of the emblems of the Free State of Ragusa. In 1418 the Republic of Ragusa, as Dubrovnik was called at that time, constructed the Roland Ital.

The Roland-Statuen ( "Roland Statues") were symbolic of the city's autonomous or independent status, often built under Sigismund in his Electorate of Brandenburg. For a long period, his lower arm was the measurement in Dubrovnik: one elbow of Dubrovnik corresponds to 51.2 cm (20.2 in). Dowrovnik has its own internal foreign airports.

Furthermore, a net of up to date, locally operated busses links all districts of Dubrovnik, which often run from morning to evening. Dubrovnik, however, unlike the other large Croatian centers, cannot be reached by rail;[68] until 1975 Dubrovnik was linked to Mostar and Sarajevo by a narrow-gauge railroad (760 mm)[69][70] constructed during the Austro-Hungarian domination of Bosnia.

Motorway A1, which is used between Zagreb and Plo?e, is to be expanded to Dubrovnik. As the area around the town is separated from the remainder of the Croatia, the motorway will either pass over the Pelje?ac bridge, the building of which is currently blocked, or pass through Neum in Bosnia and Herzegovina and on to Dubrovnik.
