Other Dubrovnik Sites


Dubrovnik's motto, Libertas ("liberty"), which is plastered across the sides of buses and the city's tourist literature, speaks volumes about the city's self-image and the idealized way in which it is perceived by others. For several centuries the city-state of Dubrovnik - or Ragusa as it was then known - managed to hang on to a modicum of independence while the rest of the coast fell under the sway of foreign powers. The Venetian Lion of St Mark is conspicuously absent, while statues of St Blaise (Sveti Vlaho), the symbol of Dubrovnik's independence, fill every conceivable crack and niche in the city. At its sixteenth-century height, the Ragusan Republic has the third largest merchant fleet in the world, and its galleons gave us the word "argosy", a corrupted form of the city's name.
