Dubrovnik - Did you know?

"Let Him come here, this place will offer Him great joy" is a title written on Gradicís villa in Lapad, a summer residence from the 15th century.
Over 200 summer residences were built in the area of the former Dubrovnik Republic. The building of these summer mansions started in the Renaissance as the Renaissance man, a successor to the Christian tradition, continued to dream of heaven on earth in the gorgeous gardens that encapsulated those summer residences. The landscape and gardens were the integral part of the summer house architecture and all was subjugated to the humanistic thought and the Renaissance idea of a man in the focus enjoying the life to its fullest. As opposed to the European Renaissance architecture, Dubrovnik architecture was unique in the way that it incorporated many Gothic elements into the building style as the Dubrovnik community relied strongly on tradition and conservative world views hence bringing forth this unique Gothic-Renaissance style of architectural design.
