Old Town

Dubrovnik was seriously bombed during the Croatian War of Independence from 1991 to 1995. But today almost all of the destructions have been repaired; still, to look closely around the old town, mortar damage in the cobblestone streets and bullet marks in the stone houses are visible. Now that the marble streets have been mended and the Baroque buildings patched up, carefully preserved medieval walls of Durbovnik are again the most attractive tourist mecca.
The best way to get a sense of Old Town is to walk its thick fortification walls, which are 80 feet high at some points and pass through a plethora of fortresses and turrets. The one-hour stroll affords great views of tiled rooftops, hidden monastery courtyards, and the surrounding coastline.
Just off the marble-paved main drag, the Stradun, sits the fifteenth-century Dubrovnik Synagogue, the second oldest in Europe.
