Many cities around the world are still protected by the old city walls built centuries ago, but honestly, not many of them are as beautiful as Dubrovnik, also known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic” or “Croatian Athens.” Just a few of those cities offer the chance to run on those same walls. Dubrovnik is one of them!
Dubrovnik is the most prominent Croatian tourist destinations and since 1979, part of the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. But what makes this city so unique? Many would say The Walls of Dubrovnik.
These mighty medieval walls, with their 1940 meters of uninterrupted history, firmly and safely keep Dubrovnik in their centuries-old grip. Throughout history, they withstood all attacks and kept the unwanted visitors out.
Nowadays, it is a whole different story. Dubrovnik today is opening its arms and welcoming runners from all over the world to conquer these walls!
