You may recognise the city if you follow the hit TV show Game of Thrones, as most of the shooting has been done here, one of the most beautiful cities on the Croatian coast. In the Middle Ages, the Republic of Dubrovnik was an important rival of Venice. Many buildings in the old city centre testify of this glorious past and to its Venetian influence. The walls of Dubrovnik girdle are a perfectly preserved complex representing all periods of the city's history, with sacral and secular buildings from the 7th century. Particular mention should be made of the city's main street, Stradun, the Rector's Palace, the church of St Vlaho, the Cathedral, three large monasteries, the Custom's Office and the City Hall. The Republic of Dubrovnik was the centre of a separate political and territorial entity, and was proud of its culture, its achievements in commerce and especially of its freedom, preserved down so many tempestuous centuries. Today, Dubrovnik is a very lively city, with many things to do. The coast nearby offers all sorts of activities and the town has many restaurants and clubs. If you arrive by cruise ship, a popular way to visit Dubrovnik, be aware that there is no cruise terminal in the old port of Dubrovnik. Most cruise ships dock in the port 'Gruz'. From there it is a 15 minute ride to the Pile Gate – the western entrance into the Old Town of Dubrovnik.
