Dubrovnik – a cradle of the IUC

Ever since the establishment of the IUC, Dubrovnik has served as an ideal site for this institution. This community has a long history as an independent city-state, always promoting a rich and fertile environment for scientific and artistic developments at the cross-roads of a wide range of trade and contact routes so well located between East and West, North and South. Dubrovnik is considered a perfect setting for contemporary efforts to exchange knowledge and ideas. After the academic part of the IUC programmes, participants may explore Dubrovnik’s rich history, visit museums, churches, walk the City walls, visit other scientific institutions, attend concerts, or just enjoy the natural Mediterranean ambience.
