The Old City of Dubrovnik in southern Croatia is very old.

Dating back to the 7th century, it has been built and re-built over hundreds of years.

It has a wide variety of churches and other buildings —

Byzantine, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque.

The city walls were built in the 14th and 15th centuries

And encircle what is now the ‘modern’ city of Dubrovnik.

About 42,000 people live in those old houses and flats!
