An important sea power on the Mediterranean since the 13th century, Dubrovnik has been named as the “Pearl of the Adriatic” and has been playing an important role in the region. Rocked by an earthquake in the 17th century and armed conflict in the 1990s, the city still managed to maintain its Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings. Dubrovnik is a remarkably well-preserved example of a late-medieval walled city, with a regular street layout. The entire old city of Dubrovnik is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is currently undergoing a major restoration programme funded by UNESCO.
