In 1997, when RIT established its presence in Croatia, not many others had the vision to see what the country would be today – a popular tourist destination, bustling economy and new member of the European Union. With campuses in both the small coastal city of Dubrovnik as well as the capital city of Zagreb, RIT Croatia enrolls over 600 students not only from within Croatia, but throughout Europe, Australia, South America and the United States.
RIT Croatia’s campus in Dubrovnik is located at Don Frana Bulica 6, just a few steps from the main entrance to Old Town, a historic section of Dubrovnik. The RIT Croatia building contains classrooms, faculty and staff offices, student lounges, a copy center, library, computer labs and is fully equipped with the latest technology including wireless internet access
Dubrovnik, also known as “the pearl of the Adriatic” is no longer the world’s best kept secret. This unique destination magnificently combines the natural beauty of the pristine Adriatic Sea and mountainous Croatian landscape with medieval architecture and old-world city planning. No wonder it is the place where the magical and popular series Game of Thrones is filmed.
The stunning city of Dubrovnik with its historic Old Town became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979. The gleaming marble streets are lined with baroque buildings and Renaissance fountains.
The history of Dubrovnik is a fascinating study of the rise of a great maritime power that lived in peace and prosperity for nearly five centuries. Dubrovnik is much more than a fascinating Old Town. It is a first class Adriatic resort complete with beautiful pebble beaches and a vibrant nightlife.
When you are in Dubrovnik, your learning will continue beyond the walls of the classroom. Visit the ancient Roman salt flats that are still in production today. Attend numerous cultural festivals that are unique to the Dalmatian Coast. Simply sit at one of the many sidewalk cafes and listen to the stories of your classmates. Walk atop the city walls, go for a hike, or take a ferry to one of the many nearby islands.
Visit Dubrovnik and experience every aspect of its captivating, charming, safe and beautiful atmosphere.
