At a Glance

In 1667 the Republic of Ragusa suffered a catastrophic event – a massive earthquake that took the lives of half its population and marked the end of its Golden Age. On this virtual field trip we will visit architectural monuments past and present, from the Rector’s Palace and the Walls of Dubrovnik, to post-earthquake cathedrals and churches. This architectural voyage takes us from tragedy to transformation as Dubrovnik becomes the modern city it is today.
