Although the city lies on the Croatian mainland, if you want to travel by car to another part of Croatia and not leave the country, you’ll have to take a ferry. You can find why that’s the case when you read the history of Dubrovnik, which, by the way—allow me to throw in just one historic fact—was known as Ragusa up until 1918. ......
