What is Dubrovnik known for?


century numerous

Church adherents, 14th and 15th century. *numerous legal and commercial documents (charters, letters, donations) of nobles and royalty from medieval Bosnian state in correspondence with Dubrovnik and various cities in Dalmatia, beginning in the 12th and 13th century, and reaching its peak in the 14th and 15th centuries *Hval Manuscript was written in 1404 by Hval Krstyanin in Bosnian Croatian Cyrillic Script ''(bosančica or bosanica)'' in ikavian accent with a Glagolitic introduction that reads, "in honour of praised sir Hrvoje (Hrvoje Vukčić), duke of Split (Split, Croatia) and the knight of Lower Country and others." *its primary characteristics (scriptory, morphological, orthographical) show strong connection with the Glagolitic script, unlike the standard Church Slavonic form of Cyrillic script associated with Eastern Orthodox churches *it had been in use, in ecclesiastical works, mainly in Bosnian Church and Roman Catholic Church in historical lands of Bosnia (Bosnia (region)), Hum (Hum, Bosnia and Herzegovina), Dalmatia and Dubrovnik. Also, it was a widespread script in Bosnian Muslim circles, which, however, preferred modified Arabic aljamiado script. Serbian Orthodox clergy and adherents used mainly standard, Resava orthography version of Serbian Cyrillic. *the form of Bosnian Cyrillic has passed through a few phases, so although culturally it is correct to speak about one script, it is evident that features present in Bosnian Franciscan documents in 1650s differ from the charters from Brač island in Dalmatia in 1250s. thumb right 200px Cities that have hosted the Games (File:Edizioni gdm.png) No inland city has ever hosted the games. All but one of the host cities to date have been situated on the Mediterranean coast. (Casablanca is located on the Atlantic coast.) Recently, Dubrovnik (''Croatia''), Mostar (''Bosnia and Herzegovina'') and Kotor (''Montenegro'') signed an official Declaration for joint candidacy for hosting 2021 Mediterranean Games. On 30 June 1941, Moljević published a booklet with the title ''On Our State and Its Borders''. He proposed a future federal Yugoslav (Yugoslavia) state composed of three units: Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia. The Serbian unit was to include Bosnia, Mostar (Herzegovina), parts of Croatia (Metković, Šibenik, Zadar, Ploče, Dubrovnik, Karlovac, Osijek, Vinkovci, Vukovar), as well as Pécs (Hungary), Timişoara (Romania), Vidin and Kyustendil (Bulgaria), the entire Macedonia and North Albania. The Moljević programme envisaged autonomy or special status for the city of Dubrovnik and surrounding areas and the Croat dominated area of Western Herzegovina, within the structure of the internal Serbian entity. thumb right 250px View of Dubrovnik's old town.

original style

In history, many Conversos (Marranos) were attracted to Dubrovnik, formerly a considerable seaport. In May 1544, a ship landed there filled exclusively with Portuguese (Portugal) refugees, as Balthasar de Faria reported to King John. Another admirer of Dubrovnik, George Bernard Shaw, visited the city in 1929 and said: "If you want to see heaven on earth, come to Dubrovnik." In the bay of Dubrovnik is the 72-hectare wooded island of Lokrum, where according to legend, Richard the Lionheart (Richard I of England) was cast ashore after being shipwrecked in 1192. The island includes a fortress, botanical garden, monastery and naturist beach (Nude beach). File:Lapad - poluotok.JPG thumb left Lapad peninsula
