Dubrovnik was a very happy surprise. It is a walled seaside city on a peninsula in southern Croatia. Serbia is in the hills just five miles away. After Yugoslavia broke up in 1991, Serbia became aggressive and bombed Dubrovnik for months. The old city suffered a lot of damage, but today most of the damage has been repaired. If the roofs are red, they are new, post-bombing. If they are tan, they are old and survived.
Dubrovnik has a marvelous series of high city walls. A wall walk around the city is a can't miss experience.
