About Grad Dubrovnik

The city of Dubrovnik is located in the southernmost part of Croatia, near the border with Montenegro. Its strategic position has meant that throughout history it has been frequently fought over and occupied by a succession of different civilisations. The oldest settlement on the site was an Illyrian fortress known as Epidaurum (Greek: Επίδαυρος), founded in the 7th century BC, which eventually came under Roman rule and became one of their most important cities. It was later ruled by Byzantines before being given to Slavic tribes such as Croats or Serbs; they gave it its current name after settling there sometime between 6th and 8th centuries AD—the term dubrava means "oak grove" in old Slavic language (cf. Serbian Дубрава/Dubrava). In 1205–1220, during Venetian rule, it was briefly named Arborea meaning "of oak".
