The Dubrovnik City Walls are having one of the best, if not the best, years on record. And on Saturday the 16th of July the Dubrovnik City Walls broke yet another record, in one day they sold 9,078 entrance tickets. The City Walls are well on target for achieving a million visitors this year, making them the most visited attraction in Dubrovnik by far and one of the most in the whole of Croatia.
And the good news for the walls doesn’t stop there. The most prestigious restoration and heritage enhancement award in Croatia, the “Vicko Andric” award has been won by the walls, the first time that this award has been received by a Dubrovnik institution. The Friends of Dubrovnik Antiquities, the association that cares for and operates the walls, have been honoured with this special award. At a meeting held on the 4th of July in the Ministry of Culture it was decided that this Dubrovnik association deserved the “Vicko Andric” award for their contribution to the local community. The gala ceremony will be held on the 27th of September in the Mimara Museum in Zagreb.
