31. Dubrovnik – World’s Most Incredible Cities

Discover why Dubrovnik in Croatia ranked #31 in our countdown of ‘100 Most Incredible Cities in the World’. 



Best known for:

Its formidible walled exterior that encloses and protects the charming Old Town within.

Did you know?

During the Balkans War in the early 1990s the city fought off a nine-month Serbian-Montenegrin siege.
