The 2018 edition of the Welcome to Dubrovnik magazine brings a series of stories that will open the door to Dubrovnik’s past, as well as the present moment of this city and its people. The city of Dubrovnik is very proud of its rich tradition, and every year significant funds are invested in the restoration of the monuments so that both locals and visitors can enjoy the heritage that our ancestors left us so many centuries ago.

When you walk around this city you will understand why American journalist and travel writer David Farley decided to make Dubrovnik his permanent home; it will become clear to you why the top Spanish water polo player Xavi Garcia and his entire family moved to Dubrovnik; you will not be surprised that Dubrovnik’s amateur photographers never leave home without their cameras, nor that the great 19th-century Czech painter, Jaroslav Čermak, called the most beautiful years of his life those spent near Dubrovnik. We recommend that you to visit the interior of the Minčeta Tower which after more than five centuries has been restored and opened to the public, then the small church of St. Stephen, as well as some of the rural farmsteads nearby, if you want to escape the city crowds and enjoy nature. Pride in the famous maritime history of the Dubrovnik Republic and its shipyards, where the great karaka sailing ships were built, inspired us to write a story about them, as well as the custom of kolenda, a type of traditional congratulatory song that has been sung in this area during Christmas and New Year’s since the 13th century. We bring you an old cake recipe that is being brought back to Dubrovnik tables, as well as a story about Dubrovnik tourist guides who for 80 years have professionally shown visitors the sights of this city rich with history. Our contemporary scholar, writer and poet Luko Paljetak testifies to the fact that Dubrovnik’s greatest wealth is its people. Paljetak was elected to the regular membership of the European Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters (AESAL) Leonardo da Vinci, made up of over 60 Nobel Prize winners and hundreds of the world's most prominent scientists, artists and researchers. In addition to these texts, this magazine is filled with other interesting topics, so get reading and discover them for yourself!
