The article mentions the fact that Dubrovnik has had good results in the last five years, especially thanks to the western market, and that the number of visitors has been growing by about 10 percent per year. It points out that Dubrovnik is often reffered to as the jewel of the Adriatic, and describes its marble streets, Renaissance fountains and white sandy beaches...
