Dubrovnik is surrounded by the City Walls, almost 2 km long, for which it is known all over the world. Throughout history, these walls have protected the city of Dubrovnik from enemies, and today they bring visitors from all over the world. Walking through the walls of Dubrovnik, you will get to know some of the imposing fortresses that served to defend the Republic of Dubrovnik. Of the five fortresses, three are an integral part of the city walls - Minčeta, Bokar and Sv. Ivan, and two are detached, Lovrijenac in the west and Revelin in the east. Minčeta Fortress is located on the highest part of the city and defended the city from the north. Since 2015, the Race through the Walls has been held, which runs their entire length. This historically unique city is often called a museum city due to its rich tourist offer, preserved historical buildings and sights. Simply every step through the cobbled streets of this city is a return to a rich past that makes for an unforgettable experience.
