One of the most popular cities with visitors and perhaps one of the best known on the Croatian and Dalmatian coastline is that of Dubrovnik. It achieved a bit of infamy during the war in former Yugoslavia in early 90s, when the footage of Dubrovnik's old walls being bombarded by the Serb paramilitary and Yugoslav army forces went around the world.

But Dubrovnik's rich history goes back to the 7th century when the first known settlement was established. In the 15th century the city became the Republic of Dubrovnik, also known as the Republic of Ragusa.

Dubrovnik today

For many decades Dubrovnik has been one of the most visited cities in Croatia, welcoming guests from around the world.

Although the visitors numbers did slow down during early 1990s, since the mid 90s and especially since the beginning of this century, more and more tourists are visiting Dubrovnik, year after year.

Dubrovnik has established itself as one of the best known Croatia destinations, creating a brand recognized worldwide. Dubrovnik has also become a popular holiday destination for the rich and famous.

Celebrities in Dubrovnik

These of course include some of the best known celebrities, who have been discovering Dubrovnik’s charm, over and over again. During the past few years in particular, Dubrovnik has become a Mediterranean mecca for famous celebrities, either passing through, or taking their time in soaking up the local Summer atmosphere.

While in its early days Dubrovnik played host to the likes of Agatha Christie, Lord Byron and George Bernard Shaw, these days the city attracts the likes of Tom Cruise, Christopher Walken, John Malkovich, Naomi Campbell, and others.

As Dubrovnik‘s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of the early James Bonds, now Sir Roger Moore, had also visited Dubrovnik last year with his wife, as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. He was attending the charity music event "From Dubrovnik for the Children of the World".

The actor John Malkovich, whose family apparently originates somewhere from this region, is a frequent visitor, having bought a holiday home here.

It is expected that during 2006 the city will be even more popular, not only with celebrities, but especially with other tourists, including those looking to buy a property here. While Dubrovnik's real estate has become expensive, those with deep pockets will still find a lot of good bargains in and around Dubrovnik.

However, if you’re looking for more reasonably priced holiday homes or villas in Dalmatia, you will discover more property bargains in and around Split area.
