Dubrovnik - Croatia Tourist Attractions
Where does one start a tour of the city? The classic route is along the city walls because with every step these show off the beauty of the city. With a length of almost 1 'A, miles (2 km) encircling the fortifications they rise up to around 80 feet (25 m) above them and are 13—20 feet (4-6 m) wide. One's eyes are constantly drawn to the view across the expanse of sea and wanders back to with fascination to the jumble of thousands of roofs. From the fortifications you can also discern the clean lines of the city. Two main entrances, the Pile and Ploc gates lead to a carfare Dubrovnik, the heart of which clearly beats on Stradun also known as the Placa (main street) with its stores. Here where there are elegant middle class "palaces" and colorful stores past which people stroll are also the cafes where you can get a kava - coffee as black as night - where people hold discussions, and gaze at remarkably beautiful girls. It is still apparent today that the Placa was built by filling in the arm of the sea that separated the island from the mainland as it leads dead straight from the old town.
The main sights of the Sponza palace, town hall, and cathedral are close to the harbor basin. The outStanding architectural gem is the renaissance style rector's palace in which the Rector once lived as the    I senior elected official. The spiritual heart is formed bv the St. Blasius    ' cathedral dedicated to the citv's patron saint.
