When the Slavs invaded the area in the 7th century, Dubrovnik was once an island, and its rocky cliffs provided the ideal refuge for the Romans (the channel that separated the islet from the shore was filled in the 12th century).

The town was under the security of the Byzantine Domain, then, at that point, fell under the sway of Venice, until 1358, when it accomplished freedom as the Republic of Ragusa, which dominated sea exchange and became rich.

Their motto, “Liberty is not sold for all the gold in the world,” was carried out by enacting contemporary laws and institutions, such as the end of slavery. They were likewise spearheads in clinical benefits, opening a quarantine emergency clinic (Lazareti – right external the Ploče Entryway) and a drug store (actually working today at the entry of the Franciscan Cloister) in the fourteenth 100 years. In addition, they constructed an innovative water supply system that included two public fountains that can be viewed and drank from at both ends of Stradun.
