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.

Was unable to attend and unable to watch within 14 days. Am unclear why RoadScholar limits watching to 14 days which is a pretty small window. Have now booked a RS trip in the same area, so permitting me to watch would be a good move for RS.

Wonderful presentation! I learned a lot, and may book a trip based on the excellent content.

A very worthwhile venture into the history and architecture of this region—packed with information about city planning and government in the Middle Ages. Far more compelling than I expected.

This was a very informative and well paced overview of Dubrovnik from its beginnings to the present day. Luci, the presenter was personable and well informed. She had slides, mock-ups and a wealth of information to share with us. The Q&A that followed was also very enjoyable. Well done, Road Scholar!!

Since I'm unable to travel now, the online program is perfect to learn more about the world. Maybe I'll be able to visit one day. Loved the history of a place I didn't know anything about.

This was a very interesting presentation about an area which I would love to visit but will probably not have the opportunity because of the pandemic and the fact that I am 73 and although I'm in good shape, I'm not getting any younger. The speaker was excellent.

If you love history, or architecture or all things Eastern Mediterranean, you will really enjoy this program.
