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 US.

Dubrovnik is truly a unique destination that magnificently combines the natural beauty of the pristine Adriatic Sea and mountainous Croatian landscape with outstanding architecture and old-world charm. 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 and has recently become the setting for the popular television series “Game of Thrones”. 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. But Dubrovnik is so much more than a fascinating Old Town. It is a first class Adriatic resort completed 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 festivities 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. Live and learn in Dubrovnik and experience every aspect of its captivating, charming and beautiful atmosphere.
